From the Chesapeake Bay on the eastern border to the many rivers that run through the countryside, Anne Arundel County boasts 540 miles of waterfront, most of which is privatized.

Nearly half a million people call this “land of pleasant living” home. Many of the pleasantries are directly related to water. The coves and inlets that fill the area readily afford themselves to smaller weekend retreats for lovers of kayaking and other water sports.

Many water privileged homes in Anne Arundel County are not actually on the water, but part of a community with a shared pier, offering beaches and playgrounds and even clubhouses or swimming pools.

Now guests can enjoy a Christmas show of music and dance set in Victorian England while dressing in Victorian or steam punk attire to immerse them in the atmosphere.
