My Hometown: Annapolis, Maryland

Gina Michie and her husband love raising their two sons on the Chesapeake Bay, where they visit historical homes, indulge in the local blue crabs, and take in the annual air show at the Naval Academy.

The city is nicknamed the Sailboat Capital of the World since we're on the Chesapeake Bay and the Severn River. While we all love the water, Taylor's the real aficionado. He's on his high school sailing team and started his own website, Tristan's main hobby is lacrosse, which is very popular here. He's on a club team and last summer attended training camp at nearby Johns Hopkins University.

You can't visit Maryland without tasting our famous blue crabs. When we get a craving, we head to Cantler's Riverside Inn for steamed clams, oysters, shrimp, fish, and the crabs. It's a lot of work cracking them open with a hammer, but it's part of the fun of dining there, and we always have the best time.
