There's so much to do around the Annapolis, MD are! I thought I'd put together a fun list of things you could do over the next couple of weeks to help get into the spirit of Christmas!
Every year the shops in Historic Downtown Annapolis stay open until midnight for shoppers! This coming Thursday is the last day to go. Fred & I will be there. He's looking forward to "Coco at the HoHo with the PoPo. No surprise there, eh? I'm looking forward to the complimentary gift wrapping! There's also a variety of carolers throughout the evening. Bonus, there's 3 hrs free parking!
At Sandy Point State Park, you can drive along the shore of the Chesapeake Bay and see more than 60 illuminated displays! When we went to take Peru to meet Gracie, the Corgi we ended up not adopting, we saw them preparing all of the displays. It's quite the project for sure! I guess you can even purchase a pair of 3D glasses to make the magical show come alive. I was checking out their Twitter account and they give fun discounts randomly. Some examples on various days: show your braces, ugly Christmas sweater, and Team Colors. The cost starts at $15 per car!
We only live about half an hour away from Six Flags America! We've never made it to their Holiday in the Park, but it looks so festive! Not all of the rides are running, but I wouldn't go for the rides. I'd only want to see everything that's all Christmas! The Looney Tunes characters are dressed up in their holiday finest. Since it's an amusement park, you know they're going to have all kinds of activities.
The weekend of the 17th & 18th will be Frosty Fest Weekend. Santa & Mrs. Clause will be on the rain ride as well! Weekends through the end of the year are to A Carroll's Christmas at Mount Clare Museum House. You're able to see this colonial American home decorated in 18th & 19th century style decorations. I was really surprised at how inexpensive this activity is for families! There are a variety of dates and times that should work out for everyone during the Christmas season! Here's their video from last year:
With Fred traveling we won't have a lot time over the next couple of weeks, but I hope we're able to do as much as we can before Christmas. Thankfully most everything goes until the end of the year!
