If holiday stress has taken the simple joy out of the season for you, the Holiday Candlelight Tour is a great way to recapture some of winter’s unmistakable magic. Visit the heart of downtown Annapolis for a leisurely walk through the beautifully decorated city streets, and enjoy a mini history lesson of the town and holidays past.
Evening walks depart from Market House Park each Friday and Saturday in December, and are led by a charming tour guide dressed in traditional colonial attire. Guided by the light of glowing lanterns, you’ll see Maryland’s historic State Capital, colonial mansions, Victorian homes, and the shops of Annapolis all decked out in their seasonal decor. It’s a lovely way to slow down, and recapture a bit of the mood-boosting spirit of the season.
The Holiday Candlelight Stroll is $23 for adults, and $13 for children. Tours depart at 7 p.m. Make a full night of it with dinner at one of the many restaurants Annapolis has to offer.
