Maryland State Capital Building, Annapolis
Favorite thing: See the cutest state capitol (no, really!). Don't miss the story about the 17th-century businesswoman who petitioned for the right to vote. This gutsy lady was *way* ahead of her time! See the Paca House for a glimpse into a colonial urban aristocrat's lifestyle. See the charming old port--and remember that this is where Alex Haley traced his ancestor Kunta Kinte's arrival in America. See the campus of St. John's College, which features a 'great books' curriculum. Don't miss the great dome of the Naval Academy chapel.
Favorite thing: Dome of the Maryland State House digitally superimposed over the town square. This building is the oldest State House still in continuous existence in the United States. Easily seen from anywhere in Annapolis, it provides excellent navigation reference while touring the town.
