7 things to do in Annapolis during the October boat shows | Oct. 4-6 and Oct. 10-14

Annapolis is home to incredible arts and culture scenes, outstanding and diverse dining options, and a rich, storied history. It’s also home to three of the nation’s largest boat shows — the U.S. Power Boat Show (Oct. 3-6, 2019), the U.S. Sailboat Show (Oct. 10-14), and the Annapolis Spring Sailboat Show (April).

If you’re visiting the Sailing Capital of the U.S., Annapolis, for one of this season’s boat shows, you’ll want to experience the city like a local! Be sure to make these seven stops during your time in Maryland’s capital this fall.
