Did you hear that Annapolis just made another list of the top places to live? This month, Outside Magazine‘s article “The 16 Best Places to Live in America: 2015“, said:
To see Annapolis shine, come on a Wednesday evening in the summer, when the weekly sailboat race draws more than 100 boats to the harbor. After the race, the locals party like, well, sailors. You’ll find crews talking smack over the night’s race footage at the Boatyard Bar and Grill. But you don’t have to sail to get on the water: in the spring, kayakers and paddleboarders float Spa Creek. On land, runners tackle the three-mile trail to the old Navy radio transmission towers on Greenbury Point. With some 39,000 residents, Annapolis is a manageable city. Downtown, you’ll run into midshipmen from the U.S. Naval Academy and students from St. John’s College discussing Kant at City Dock Coffee.
While it’s not cheap, you can buy a home with bay views for under $400,000, and jobs—many in tourism and the military—are plentiful. It can get touristy on peak weekends, but locals know to head for Wild Country Seafood, in an alley behind a maritime museum. They’ll share picnic tables and tuck into platters of Maryland blue crab, freshly caught that morning by the father-son duo who run the joint.
Nice article! And I do love living in Annapolis, and enjoying those great spots. I’m not sure they consulted a local Realtor about housing, though. If you know of a nice home with bay views for $400,000, let me know and I’ll introduce you to buyers! (Right now, a fabulous Annapolis waterfront cottage with views and a dock is available for $630,000!)
Last summer, I wrote an article titled “Waterfront Living in Annapolis? What your Realtor Wants You to Know” to help people thinking of buying on the water. Please feel free to share it with friends, and let me know your thoughts!
Have a great weekend!
