    Alex Haley Statute

    by Jim_Eliason Updated Jan 23, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In his book, Roots, Alex haley has his main character, Kunta Kinte, arrivign in the US via a slave ship into Annapolis. This statute commerates that fictional event, and recognizes the real role Annapolis served as a slave port prior to the civil war.

    Sitting by the Water

    by miclev21 Written Oct 20, 2004

    3 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Stop by the docks and enjoy EGO ALLEY. You will see the most expensive boats outside of the carib/FL, i think. Pussers is a great place to go eat and sit and watch the world sail by. Remember no wake in downton.

    Maryland's World War II Memorial

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dedicated July 23, 1998, the Maryland World War II Memorial commemorates the 288,000 people from Maryland who served during the war, and especially those heroic 6,454 who gave their lives for freedom. The WWII Memorial sits just below Ritchie Overlook where visitors can look down upon the memorial as well as view the Naval Academy and the Severn River.

    Chesapeake Bay Bridge

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Apr 2, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The southern span of the Bay Bridge was opened to traffic in 1952, connecting Maryland's Eastern Shore to its Western Shore over the Chesapeake Bay. In 1973, the three-lane northern span opened to alleviate traffic congestion on the original bridge. Driving east-to-west on the northern bridge is free, while west-to-east on the southern bridge has a toll of $2.50 for passenger cars.

    Chill at City Dock

    by fmaven Written Jun 13, 2005

    To me, City Dock is the heart of downtown Annapolis. It's a great place to sit and people watch while eating gelato, not to mention enjoying the boats coming in and turning around. Due to its location, people come in on their boats and dock to go to the shops and restaurants.

    The supposed location of Kunta Kinte's arrival, this is also the location of the Alex Haley (of Roots fame) Memorial, which is always surrounding by children.
