Welcome to Annapolis & Severna Park!
The gorgeous capital of Maryland and a sailor’s dream location!
Annapolis is Maryland’s state capitol and is located on the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth of the Severn River. Annapolis is known as the sailboat capital of the world and boating plays a big part in the culture of Annapolis. Annapolis is also known for its top-rated food and is home to many fantastic restaurants. Severna Park is just 8 miles north of Annapolis and an upscale neighborhood full of quiet tree-lined streets and fantastic local athletic programs.
Annapolis has a rich maritime history dating back to the 1600s, but today this welcoming city is eagerly growing and developing. Annapolis is the home of the United States Naval Academy founded in 1845 and the university is a strong tenet of life in Annapolis. Severna Park is a desirable neighborhood that has waterfront properties and secluded country estates. You will fall in love with this picturesque but lively section in the heart of Maryland’s Chesapeake Bay.
