Cruising Annapolis

America's sailing capita: "ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Even without the 40-foot sailboats, Maryland's state capital would be a stunner.

Settled in the late 1600s, this Colonial seaport town boasts some of the country's prettiest historic 18th-century buildings. All four of Maryland's signers of the Declaration of Independence built homes here, including William Paca, whose beautifully restored Georgian mansion - designated a National Historic Landmark in 1971 - features the only two-acre pleasure garden of its kind in the country."
