If you love boats, you can get right up close to many of them as they refuel. Also, lots of eateries all around you, super convenient. Lastly, year-round public restrooms are available here.

While in Annapolis, enjoy a walk down by the water and ogle the many boats. In the summer, the plaza and walkway are busy. A nice stroll, especially if you have fantasies of sailing away on your own boat some day. Picturesque. Be sure to...More

A great place to look at boats and watching the big boats try to turn around. People watching while enjoying an ice cream is wonderful too.

Stinkpotters now fill the Annapolis Harbor to show off their possessions on an ego-based cruise. There was time, not too long ago, when the harbor was filled with oyster boats gunwale to gunwale, and oysters ruled by the bushel. Sadler's and Steven's hardware stores sold...More

If you enjoy perusing boats who's owners want you to see them, you'll enjoy this huge slip at the bottom of Main Street in Annapolis.

Certainly, and there are many outdoor cafes that allow dogs. Indoors is not allowed because of silly health dept rules. Not as liberal as Europe, but outdoors is fine.

If he likes boats he will like this area in summer. I'd suggest a ride around the harbor however. Might be more fun for a 7 year old. Would definitely take the Naval Academy tour. Lot more to see for a younger child.
