Take a winter hike at Greenbury Point
Greenbury Point is a great place to take in views of the Bay. This week you’ll get a glimpse of the bay in winter stillness. Glassy water spreads all the way to Kent Island and the Bay bridge at Greenbury Point. Explore the small Nature center which is open on Thursdays from 1pm-3pm. The walking trail is often closed due the Naval Academy rifle range so be sure to check Twitter @NSAAnnapolis before you go.
See the lights in Downtown Annapolis
Grab some hot chocolate from Annapolis Ice Cream Company and take a pre-dinner stroll through Downtown Annapolis just as it gets dark. Check out the magical holiday lights at St. Anne’s Church, Maryland Ave., and the State House Grounds.
Road Trip: ICE! Featuring Santa Claus is coming to town at National Harbor
Full disclosure we have never done ICE! at National Harbor but it looks like a pretty incredible event. ICE! Features an ice slide and Santa’s village made up entirely of ice. It seems to get mixed reviews, mostly because of the steep price of admission. If you go leave a comment and let us know if it is as good as it sounds for the kids.
The Eastport Yacht Club Lights Parade 2015
Our favorite, not to be missed event in Annapolis with kids! The Eastport Yacht Club Lights parade will take place this
year on Saturday, December 12th. Most of Ego Alley will be closed this year for construction so the best place to watch
h will be on the Eastport Drawbridge or on the Naval Academy Seawall. The crew at Pirate Adventures often participates in the parade with Sea Gypsy, we won’t be there this year but look for us in 2016!
