"Annapolis is a charming quaint town on the water. It is a beautiful place with a lively art district, lots of good eats, and many activities. From historic locations to upcoming buildings there are lots of neighborhoods to chose from. I would not want to live anywhere else. If I had one negative it would be the expense.
