Tour of Annapolis



A charming little city that finds itself on the edge of the Chesapeake Bay.  Growing up 30 minutes from this city, I have fond memories of going to Navy football games, grabbing smoothies at Juice It Up! (closed now) & my dad taking me to the Naval Academy obstacle course (which has been torn down since). My favorite season here is Fall. The changing of leaves, crisp November air & Sunday farmers market. From the architecture to the 18th century laid brick, this town is deep in history & plenty of seafood (crabs.)  So if you find yourself passing through, I share with you: Annap's gems.


Naval Academy 

One of Jared and I's favorite places to run. A prestigious school rich in history, that prepares students for service in the military or Navy. If you're in town visiting, you can take tours & catch a sneak peek. Fourth of July fireworks are amazing when on campus, plus there are a ton of fun activites happening during graduation week. All in all, a great place to explore for those visiting Maryland and to learn more about the history. 


Rutabaga Juicery (West Annapolis)

A locally owned craft juice place that will bring a smile to your face. This location is my go-to for smoothies (I get the No. 397.) From cold-pressed juice made in house, to wheatgrass shots & seasonal food options, you will be left feeling ready to take on the world. Plus, did I mention the people who work there/own Rutabaga are the sweetest ever? They take so much care in providing the community with locally grown goodies. Good vibes & the best juice. 


Ceremony Coffee (Russell St)

This review may be a little biased, since Jared works here, but seriously. For all you coffee-crazed folks out there, this is your spot. Ceremony does not hold back on quality. They all have one mission - to serve you the best coffee experience made with care & love. I'm pretty basic with my choice of almond milk latte...but they may convince you to only drink black coffee. It's that good. The location itself has a relaxed industrial vibe with a roll up garage door that is the perfect location to unwind. Plus, you can learn about the process of roasting coffee by Maria and Caleb, or pop in on a Friday cupping (slurping is a must.)

Bakers & Co (Eastport)


Located over the bridge in Eastport. This local neighborhood bakery has homemade pastries,  treats, and coffee drinks. The atmosphere is quirky & the air is always filled with fresh baked goods. Check out the blueberry green tea. Game changer. Grab a drink and take a stroll around the picturesque neighborhood. Fall time is my favorite time to stroll.
