Annapolis is the capital city of Maryland
located in the Baltimore-Washington Corridor, serving as a suburb to both major cities. However, unlike other run-of-the-mill suburban cities, its capital city status and preserved historic downtown harbor make Annapolis a very unique place; one that its residents are very proud of. Much like Baltimore, its residents enjoy crabs and beer, old bay, sailing, and all things uniquely centered around their access to the Chesapeake Bay. It is also not uncommon for Annapolitans to cheer for the Orioles
and take pride for them as their own. But, despite the similarities to its northern, much larger and commercialized neighbor, Annapolis has retained a much more "small town" feel and has its own set of renown establishments. Most notably, it is home to the United States Naval Academy. Annapolitans anticipate the Blue Angels and often take of work or school to go see them each year. The USNA students, "midshipmen", are often seen walking around in uniform in historic downtown. The city is also home to the St. Johns College, a liberal institution designed around studying the "great works". The city's historic downtown is decorated with brick streets and colonial buildings and contains the State Capital Building of Maryland, which is often used as an iconic symbol for the state. The city serves a rather unified demographic of upper-middle class citizens with some variation and tends to be, for this reason, a slightly "preppier" city in comparison to its neighbors.
Definitely a great place to be and a wonderful city that has found a balance of being a small-town suburb but a national renown jewel.
Annapolis has all the benefits of a small suburban city in addition to the benefits of being a city a itself. Truly a unique place whose preservation is vital to its life and culture.
Despite the common misconception that it is Baltimore, Annapolis is Maryland's capital city and one of its pride and joys. Regarded as the sailing capital of the world, Annapolis is a city near the mouth of the Severn River. The water way that comes into downtown is the famous Ego Alley, home to a lot of very expensive motorboats but a shockingly less number of compitent boaters. Remembered largely for its brick streets and many old colonial buildings, Annapolis is a modern city that remembers its past. Housing in the city is extremely expensive, as the land value is very high. Like any Maryland water city it loves its crabs but unlike Baltimore, crabs refers only to the sea creature. Also (and most notably) Annapolis is home to the famous United State Naval Academy. The uniformed 'mids' are often founds walking the streets. Oddly and almost comically, just up the streets is St. John's college: the ultimate liberal arts school whose entire curriculum consists only of the 200 'great' books. The 'johnnies' contrasts the mids with long hair, beards, tye dye shirts, and lack of shoes. Once a year, the two colleges compete in a croquet tournament. People wise, Annapolis tends to attract the preppier Marylanders as spotting people who don't own at least one Ralph Lauren Polo is rare. Parking is hell on Earth.
All in all, a great city. One of the greatest in the world.
I want some crabs and no way am I going to drive around for 45 minutes looking for a parking space- lower the boatlift and start the engine! We're going to Annapolis!
Perhaps the classiest of preppy hometowns. Big homes with rolling lawns, or even better, no lawn in the historic district, are arguably the most coveted properties on the east coast. Kids are raised with a crab net in one hand and a lax stick in the other. Best of all, only the insiders know about Annapolis and it's prestige can only be realized through the insider's reaction. If a kid reveals he's from annapolis, check your friends' reactions. Someone is bound to know just how priveledged he is. And if you dont, well maybe you should. But we don't like to brag, thats not how its done in the south.
frat boy #1: who's that girl shotgunning beers

frat boy #1: Damn.
We're surrounded by water, snobby "parkies", and catholic school kids, crabs and beer are our diet, we wear flip-flops year round( yes even in the snow), we know what Ego-Alley is, we know that we could go downtown to ACME in high school and get served no questions asked, we know about Hellish Commisioning Week, and we can spot a Midshipmen a mile away out of his uniform, we know about traffic, and we love to travel by boat, we know that the best crabs in Naptown come from Jimmy Cantlers. We are collar poppin, khaki, and rainbow wearin beach bums.If you don't know someone directly, you know them through a good friend. Naptown is not small but it's not big..... we are what we are.
This is our Ode to Annapolis
Annapolis is simply AMAZING.
Pretty much the best city I've ever been to. Home to the best of everything such as restaurants, bars, crabs, and ice cream. If you're not 21 just go to Storm Brothers Ice Cream Factory and don't be in such a hurry to need a DD. Also, there is a lot of sight-seeing with the historic buildings and stuff (and also Mids are nice to look at). If you're a real local parking is a breeze because you didn't forget how to parallel park the minute you passed your driving test. Or just park in the garage, it's like the cheapest public parking ever. I mean, $1 an hour and the first one's free!
Girl #1: Hey do you want to go to Annapolis after work?
Girl #2: Yeah let's get ice cream and look at the Mids.
amazing. if you want a smoke ride when youre in annapolis, you go to davidsonville or bay ridge. if youre into the booze, well youre going to robinwood or probably your parents who love to buy you and your friends alcohol. if its up the nostril, you know plenty of kids from st marys who will oblige. always shroom in quiet waters park. always go to crown for the freshest blunts. two dollars says you drive an explorer or a jeep cherokee. lax RULES, even if you quit in high school. lowrys gas sales on sunday and wednesday. you play the lottery for beer money but when you lose youre like FUCK mom can i have 20$? its life.
braaaa.....lets go to robinwood to get some cheap vodka...
no man, lets just go to severna park to steal some of theirs
oh yea, good call. is (whoever) from st marys gonna be there? i want to blow. are we still in annapolis?
yea man, lets go to the atm so you can take out money.
na, we can just go home and get some cash from my mom.
oh good call. we can get some free dinner too. AWESOME!!!
a small town with water all around. there are many rival highschools that party in this area for the kids are rich and the beer is cheep. most boozing tends to happen in either the highschool parking lot or the annapolis mall parking lot, then after pregaming it, its time to find the nearest rich kid whos parents are gone, get a couple kegs and sure enough four hundred people and the cops show up. dont forget the crabs and boating
the time brooks got a house and everyone took advantage of him and partied there a lot
