"Other Attractions" in Maryland
« on: August 27, 2009, 12:08:21 PM »
If youre coming to town for Labor day, here are some other, "non-ren fest" type things you may find interesting around here...let me know of any questions...cheers!

First, of course, is a catch-all web site to find out things about the area. Lots of info here...

www.VisitAnnapolis.org

See the links that Master James posted as well, especially for travel to the area type info...BWI is one of the busiest airports in the country...I think they even fly in there from Kitty Hawk...

Getting to the Fest Site:

Basically, there are two routes in and out, from the north and south:

From the North:
Head South on I97 from the BWI Airport area. Exit I97 at Exit 5 (Crownsville). You will be on MD 178 (Generals Highhway). Head South on this road until you get to Crownsville Road. Turn Right onto Crownsville Road, and follow the signs for 3 miles or so. The fest parking will be on the left.

From the South:
The Souther entrance can be accessed from MD 450 (Defense Highway). Coming from Annapolis, head west on 450. Turn right when you get to Crownsville Road. Pass under I97, and the fest parking is on the right.
Coming from the Crofton/Bowie area, head east on 450. Turn left on Crownsville Road. Pass under I97, and the fest parking is on the right.

Places to stay:

That first web site up there has all the contact information you'd ever want to read about the hotels in the general area. They are plentiful near the airport (and its a straight shot to the fest grounds from there, see directions above).

All the major chains are represented.
If you have a favorite, just go to its web site, and I bet they are nearby.

Other Activities:

Sports: The Baltimore Orioles...now, if your looking for real baseball, this may not be the place...Baltimore has only  had this imitation team for a few years now...but, the ball park is one of the prettiest ones in the Majors, and the beer and food are excellent, if a bit pricey. Web site provided below if you are of a mind...
