Top Five Things to do in Annapolis with Kids this Week: June 6th, 2016
Hit the Beach
Now is a perfect time to take the kids swimming in the bay. The weather is warmer, and the water is jellyfish free. Sandy Point State Park is open daily is less crowded at this time of year before schools let out. Check out Beaches off the Beaten Path from Chesapeake Family for a list of family friendly places to take the kids swimming in Maryland.
Join us for a Pirate Adventure
We are now operating seven days a week and offer six sailing times at 9:30, 11:00, 12:30, 2:00, 3:30, and 5:00. Plan on arriving 30 minutes prior for facepainting and dress-up. If you are looking to save some loot check out our weekday specials and our list of special events. Hop aboard the pirate ship Sea Gypsy and watch as your kids become pirates right before your eyes!
Paddleboarding with kids is actually much easier than it sounds. Annapolis Canoe and Kayak offers rentals daily and they can steer you towards a more stable board for you and your little one. Take off from the end of Third Street in Eastport and paddle under the drawbridge for a special treat.
Find a new Playground
As parents ourselves, we are always looking for a new playground. Read about our recent trips to the Nature Climb Playground in Bowie or check out our complete list of Pirate Playgrounds in MD, DC, and VA.
Road Trip: Great Falls, Maryland
The Maryland side of Great Falls is such a great place to explore with kids. The weather this week looks to be less humid and will make for great hiking weather before summer really sets in. The Maryland side of Great Falls offers Mule Drawn Canal Boat Rides and a boardwalk over the falls. If your kids are a little more adventurous hike part or all of the Billygoat Trail for views of the falls and river below. Lots of rock scrambling is required on the Billygoat Trail so proper footware is a must!
