Looking for a romantic getaway to celebrate Valentine's Day? Consider Annapolis, voted one of America's Most Romantic Towns by TravelandLeisure.com. This quaint historic seaport town, with its brick-lined streets, colonial-era buildings, and cozy restaurants, deserves the title. On Sunday afternoons throughout February, if you're situated at a window seat of a waterfront restaurant (or find yourself walking over the scenic Eastport Drawbridge), you might catch a glimpse of a unique Annapolis wintertime tradition: Frostbite Racing-wintertime sailing for the hardiest of sailors. Also, Annapolis Restaurant Week takes place each February, where dozens of to-die-for restaurants offer reduced rates on dining fare. Make a weekend of it when you spend the night in one of our quaint bed & breakfasts or modern, luxurious hotels.
