Things to do

The holiday season is upon Annapolis. You could catch a production of the musical “White Christmas,” shop at the first of several holiday markets or enjoy the century-old tradition of the Annapolis tree lighting. Those are some of the best things to do starting the day after Thanksgiving through Nov. 29.

Travel & Leisure just put Annapolis 15th on its annual list of the top 25 towns to visit for Christmas for the second year in a row. The website, frankly, is late to the party. Annapolis has been a Christmas town for more than a century. Here, then, is an essential guide to the holidays in Annapolis.

You could line up for tickets to see “A Christmas Carol,” catch the county executive in a Latin dance competition or listen to some award-winning blues. Those are just some of the best things to do through Nov. 22.
