Enjoy the paintings, sculptures, and jewelry from more than 200 artists. After sipping some Maryland wine and toasting the artists’ inspirational work, make your way back to The Flag House Inn and unwind on the large front porch. Located in the National Historic District, this inn is one of the largest private homes near the waterfront. Enjoy the nautical art and memorabilia, fine paintings, and antiques on display in your room before retiring for the night.

Eastport A Rockin’ taking place on Saturday, June 22, 2013 at the Annapolis Maritime Museum, is known as the local music festival of the summer. Three stages will feature 25 local bands from the Chesapeake region performing rock, folk, jazz, bluegrass, and funk. When you’re done rockin’ out, escape to the quaint, friendly setting at Chez Amis Bed and Breakfast (translation is “House of Friends”). Just like close friends, this inn embraces guests with its French country-styled common area designed for reading, conversation, and indulging in homemade goodies. Wake up each morning to a three-course gourmet breakfast before exploring the State Capitol, antique shops and fabulous dining all located just steps from the inn.
