Many people recognize the city of Annapolis as one of the most beautiful cities on the East Coast. However, if you’ve only seen the city on land, you’re missing out on half of its beauty! Annapolis is known as the sailing capital of America and locals would argue that its best side is only visible from the waters of the Chesapeake Bay. When you charter the schooner Liberté for a tour of Annapolis, you’ll discover a fresh perspective of the city and see many of the most beautiful sights it has to offer. Here are just a few of the sights you can see from a Liberté charter in Annapolis.
The United States Naval Academy
Founded in 1845 and situated on a tract of land reclaimed from the Severn River next to the Chesapeake Bay, the Naval Academy is one of the most recognizable symbols of Annapolis and features a gorgeous campus. The definitive highlight has to be the domed chapel which takes on a particular beauty when viewed Bayside on the Liberté.
The Bay Bridge
While most would struggle to describe the Bay Bridge as “beautiful”, it is certainly one of the most well-known features of Annapolis as the crossing of choice for millions heading down to the shore every summer weekend. The sheer scale of this massive bridge is hard to appreciate in a car – but view it from the water and you’ll discover a new appreciation for the engineering and construction work that went into this project!
Thomas Point Shoal Light
This lighthouse is the most recognized lighthouse in Maryland and is currently the last unaltered screwpile cottage-type lighthouse still standing on its original foundation in the Bay. It was constructed in 1875 and added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1975. It continues to be an active aid to navigation on the waters of the Bay and is maintained by the Coast Guard and the city of Annapolis. You can even tour the lighthouse during the summer months! Regardless of when you book your charter on the Liberté, however, you can discover the quaint beauty of this Maryland landmark for yourself.
