The forecast calls for rain this weekend but that doesn’t mean you have to stay inside. Have you been itching to escape your everyday routine and explore something new for a change? The good news is that there are plenty of areas near you that are offering fun and exciting events this weekend. Are you looking to explore downtown Annapolis? The Franklin Chauffeur can give you a ride!

The Renaissance Festival

This is the last weekend of the annual Renaissance Festival. The second largest Renaissance Festival in the country is celebrating its 40th season at Revel Grove. Come as yourself, or dress in traditional garb, and travel back in time as you immerse yourself in the culture of a 16th century English village, complete with King Henry VIII and his court. Peruse the miles of artisan stands and merchants on display. Take a walk down Queen’s Path and show the jewels in Jezzard Jewelry, or roam down the alleys of White Stag and shops the gowns and tunics at the Purple Unicorn.

Much on a turkey leg in one hand and sip traditional mead in the other. Every part of the village has something delicious and interesting to offer. Munch on a fried cheesecake while you witness a joust or see a Shakespearian play!

Greenstreet Gardens Fall Festival

Visit the beautiful Greenstreet Gardens this weekend and get lost in one of the largest corn mazes in Maryland! Take the kids to bounce on the largest jumping pillow you’ve ever seen and snap a pic of them climbing over the tire tower! Equipped with a petting zoo, underground slide, and a cow train, the Greenstreet Gardens Fall Festival is a great fall activity for everyone, young and old!

Annapolis Cruises

Franklin can get you to Annapolis in one of our sedans or SUVs, and then you can relax and tour the Chesapeake while relaxing on a sightseeing Annapolis boat tour. See the fall foliage and distant lights of the Naval Academy as you sip a drink from the open waters.
