Eastport is a tony section of Annapolis Maryland located across the Compromise Street draw bridge on the other side Spa Creek; BTW going from Eastport to Annapolis you on 6th Street - no confusion there! In any case, when you are in Eastport you are at the heart of the sailing capital of the world. Ringing the Eastport peninsula you will find marinas, boat yards, restaurants, thriving businesses, and in between a wide variety of private homes including single family homes, townhomes, and condominiums, on and off the water. The humble and extravagant abodes alike along Spa Creek have outstanding views of downtown Annapolis while others have views of the United States Naval Academy (USNA), look out over a large deep expanse of the Severn River, or across the well protected anchorage of Back Creek.
The peninsula's history starts in September of 1665 when Robert Clarkson was granted 300 acres called Horne Point. In 347 years Eastport has come a very, very long ways. In 1998 the Maritime Republic of Eastport was founded to find a creative way to promote and encourage the patronage of Eastport businesses that were destined to be hurt by the Maryland State Highway Administration's shutting down for repair of the drawbridge connecting mainland Annapolis. The rest is history.
Now Eastport is a thriving eclectic neighborhood where you can find some of Annapolis' best restaurants including the Boatyard Bar and Grill, Carols Creek Waterfront Restaurant, Chart House, Lewnes Steak House, Rockfish, O'Learys Seafood Restaurant, and others.
You will also find some of the best marinas in town, including exclusive places to keep your sailboat or powerboat that includes Mears Marina Annapolis, Horn Point Harbor Marina, Annapolis Harbor Boat Yard, Annapolis City Marina, Pier 4 Marina, and several others. If you are looking for a blue blazer yacht club to join, you won't find it at Eastport Yacht Club, instead what you will find is an organization built on activities on the water and ashore, that hosts major championship regattas, Friday night Beer Can races, and everything in between.
If you want to workout before heading out to sail or to fish, then the place to go is the Annapolis Athletic Club in the Eastport Shopping Center.
