A city is a place of tremendous variety, usually constructed upon rock ‘n’ roll. Plumb the secret depths of Annapolis with today's Groupon: for $9, you get one adult ticket for a one-hour trolley tour through Discover Annapolis Tours. Tours depart from the Annapolis Visitors Center at Northwest and Calvert streets.
Discover Annapolis Tours hauls history seekers to some of the town’s most beautiful and significant centuries-old sites. Clamber into the climate-controlled tour trolley for a non-car-chased cruise through Annapolis as your guide points out notable real estate such as the Maryland State House, St. John’s College, and the City Dock, where 19th-century pirates would park their jet skis for their fortnightly euchre tournaments. Tours skirt the sides of the Naval Academy and wheel past breathtaking Victorian and Georgian homes still covered in the fine white dust left by their powdered-wigged inhabitants. Although today’s deal is for adult tickets only, children are welcome on the tours (tickets are $9 for kids 11–15, $3 for ages 10 and below, and free for preschoolers), as are dogs—sparing pet owners the chore of reenacting the experience for four-legged history buffs using only Milk-Bones and rawhide.
