Amazing Benefits when Living on the Water
Forget the nice home in a quiet suburb with a white picket fence. If you live in Annapolis, have all the benefits of being in the “Sailing Capital of the U.S.” The scenery and the activities are so cool you can even cancel that trip to Amsterdam. You have full-fledge waterfront benefits just a few steps from home.
Do you speak sailing?
Located in an estuary, Annapolis comes with a wide range of sailing propositions for beginners and die- hard sailing aficionados.
Even if you will not buy a catamaran this year, it is still fun to attend a boat show. You get to choose from at least 4-5 such events, including the U.S. Powerboat Show and the U.S. Sailboat Show, topped only by the Spring Sailboat Show.
If you want to get hands-on and rock the boat yourself, it’s a good idea to go to a sailing school first or send your children. If they would rather be pirates, you can also do that in Annapolis.
Of course, you can also take the easy solution and just charter a boat, or a yacht, and enjoy the experience without thinking about the technical issues.
Skip the gym, do watersports
If you are the active type or just looking to burn some calories, you’ll have plenty of things to choose from with various adrenaline levels. You can get a full workout by windsurfing or kitesurfing at the bay. If you want to get the latest craze thy the stand-up paddle boarding by night.
Why not get a full arms workout with some paddling in a kayak or canoe, no more rowing machine.
Fishing for family bonding
Having a waterfront so close to your home is good enough reason to take out those fishing rods. Rent a boat and spend some quality time with your family. You can test your patience while waiting for the fish to bite, read a book and enjoy some cocktail on the deck or work on your tan. At the end of the day, it doesn’t even matter if you’ve caught any fish, you can be sure you already have some memories. You can also mix this with the previous idea of a kayak and get one made especially for fishing. Why not take the challenge of being a tourist in your town? Don’t go to the same place, try to discover what this city has to offer and spend your next free days finding new ways to spend your time.
