About Eastport


Just across the bridge from Annapolis, Eastport is an eclectic mix of charming homes

and gardens of long-time residents and relative newcomers, maritime and diverse

businesses, and good restaurants.  It is situated on the Chesapeake Bay at the mouth

of the Severn River and is surrounded by Back and Spa Creeks on each side. It is the

earthier more diverse side of Annapolis, Maryland's state capital.   


Residents here enjoy walking to nearby restaurants and downtown Annapolis, boating 
on the Chesapeake and its tributaries, and living within an hour to Washington, DC
and Baltimore, MD.  There's a lot of history here and plenty to see and do.
