Beyond Main Street: As you travel up Main Street from the City Dock, looking up from Francis Street to your right you see one of the iconic views of Annapolis—the Maryland State House. Built in the late 18th century atop the hill crowned by State Circle, this is the oldest state capitol building in continuous legislative use in the United States.

Once you reach State Circle, walk either way around to see the variety of shops and restaurants in close proximity. Maryland Avenue has long been known for its dining and shopping opportunities, especially its selection of antique and consignment goods.

Two of the most significant colonial homes in Annapolis face one another across Maryland Avenue, while two others are near the intersection of East Street and Prince George Street. These houses were built by men who became prominent patriot leaders, including two signers of the Declaration of Independence: Samuel Chase and William Paca.
