A jolly good pirate adventure on the Chesapeake

A jolly good pirate adventure on the Chesapeake

Monday – Visit the animals, roam the peaceful grounds, and possibly join in a children’s program at Oxon Hill Farm. Hours are 8am – 4:30m, and admission is free.

Tuesday – Arrrgh! Cruise the high Chesapeake seas with Pirate Adventures in Annapolis. The company specializes in, well, pirate adventures for children, taking little buccaneers on a search for buried treasure. Several time slots are available throughout the day, and they set sail everyday of the week. Cost is $20/person, and that includes face painting and dress up along with the on board fun.

Wednesday – Head to Baltimore for Gizmos, Gadgets, and Gears at the Maryland Science Center. Along with the amazing permanent exhibits, like “Dinosaur Mysteries” and “Body: The Inside Story,” the museum has engineered a summer full of contraptions, challenges, and creativity that puts visitors in the role of inventor, where the only limit is imagination. Hours are 10am – 6pm, and admission is $16.95/adults, $13.95/ages 3-12, free for members.

Thursday – Catch a performance of Circus! at The Puppet Co. at Glen Echo Park. After the show, stay for a picnic lunch and some romping on the playground. Showtime is 10am (on Friday, too). Tickets are $10.

Friday – Enjoy some water play at Georgetown Waterfront Park. Running through the fountain of sprays is a fun, refreshing way to enjoy a summer day. After (or before, depending on when you go), grab a bite to eat at one of the many nearby eateries.
