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 United States Naval Academy's main campus was founded in Annapolis in 1845. One of our favorite events is the Blue Angels Air Show, which takes place in May as part of the school's graduation festivities. There's live music, food vendors, and pickup lacrosse games. Thousands watch the spectacular Flight Demonstration Squadron Air Show, where acrobatic maneuvers are performed at high speeds. Our family looks forward to it every spring.
