This is so amazing to see - just feels like you are set back in a different place in time. Love the colors and the upkeep of the buildings.

This little house is so cool! It's only open on the weekends, but you can go inside and see how a typical Annapolis house looked like in the colonial era. Whenever I've gone, there was a reenactor dressed up as a fur trader. He was...More

One of the quaint side streets of Historic Annapolis, just off the waterfront. Cute row houses with cobblestone walks. Great for a spring day stroll or part of a guided tour

They gave us wristbands at the Paca House and encouraged us to go to Hogshead, which was very nearby and worth the stop. It's not very big but it was interesting to see this house from 1810. They had some small snacks and drinks available...More

While the grand homes represent one side of life in old Annapolis, this represents the other. Also very interesting.

This is definitely a super cute, quaint road to walk down. Beware that cars do drive down the road, so be sure to stay on the sidewalks. The little museum is very minimal and best for folks with younger kids or for those who have...More

See how the other half lives! Hogsheads was a place where indentured servants and dock workers came to crash when they were in town. On weekends, history enthusiasts dress up in Colonial garb and lead you into a little room where you sit on a...More

Enthusiastic ladies dressed in period costumes provided us with detailed descriptions of life in colonial times. We were enthralled and learned so much about practical items such as how to lessen the stench of colonial life; how the indentured servants dressed and why, what tools...More

Trip Report - Day 5 - the Wizarding World of Harry Potter (9 Replies)
Only just catching up with trip reports after two very long days. So today was the day we visiting the Wizarding World of Harry Potter. I am a huge Harry Potter fan, having grown up with the series. I visited New York in December 2011 with my OH and forced him to make a "side trip" to Orlando for three days because there was no way I was going to travel all the way to America and miss the chance to see it. My expectations were so high, I thought the park could never live up to it and I...More

Saturday proved to be a super busy day, but oh, what a great one! Started nice enough with breakfast on my lanai. Papaya and lime juice, 2 eggs, malasada, and coffee. I never eat breakfasts like this at home! But I knew I would need the fuel to get me through the day. Then I turned on the little net book. And of course, phoned my tech guy! Why does it never work the same as the day before? Anyway, there were all kinds of new messages, all of a dire nature. Dave assured me it was all okay. I...More

We had a couple of hours to get organized for the TA get together. I got busy cutting up the Nanaimo Bars. I also drove to the green church and picked up 2 huli huli chickens. Got the chairs organized, and the coolers packed. I had enough time to jump in the pool for a half hour before Colorado Mickey Moo and her daughter met us at the condo. Hugs all around, and we packed up Deb's car for the drive to Kahekili Beach. The trunk was just big enough to hold all the lawn chairs and the coolers....More

Hi Emma, It's difficult to draw up a plan, when we tackle the rides, the wait time is important The favourites are going to have large queues The universal parks get busy and wait times can easily hit 45 mins+ When we go, we get there for opening time, RRR, was a 5 min wait at 9am, minion was also a short wait early on Another advantage from arriving early, is thunderstorms in afternoons can disrupt rides You should spend the first 2/3 hrs enjoying the outdoor favourite rides, after...More
