Annapolis Virtual Tour Contest

Okay.  I spent the better part of my life in Annapolis.  A great town on the Chesapeake Bay that has a unique combination of history, sailing, and seafood.

 We want to give back, but it will come at a cost for Unique 360 Tours.  We want to give a FREE Virtual Tour to the most creative location in Annapolis.  I’m talking very creative or else we just won’t do it.  Maybe a local celebrity’s home, maybe a rarely accessible historical attraction, maybe a location with an amazing view.  So, fire up those creative juices… put on your thinking caps… and leave a comment on this post.    We want the good stuff, especially since we will be doing the whole thing for FREE.   

Let’s go over my vision and maybe that will get you thinking…

Good Idea – Thomas Point Lighthouse
Good Idea – Chesapeake Bay Foundation
Bad Idea –   Hunt Meadow Pool
Bad Idea – Red Lobster by the mall

 

It’s a plus if you have a contact, friend, or family member that has access to the location, but not necessary.  And the best part, the winner gets a FREE Limited Edition Unique 360 Tours t-shirt!

So, let’s hear what you got.  Leave a comment by clicking below.  Or click on the ‘Contact’ page on the right hand side of this blog… and you’ll find a ridiculous amount of ways you can contact us and tell us about your amazing location!!!  Looking forward to hearing from you.

    When I was growing up playing lacrosse in Annapolis, I felt like every team I played on: Annapolis Optimist, PAL Hawks, AYLA Bay Raiders, and St. Mary’s…we always had a man-up play or something named “Wroxeter” – pronounced: “ROCKS-etter”…no one ever bothered to ask why…

    When I got to college on the Eastern Shore and got a little wiser, and met more and more people, I began to hear more and more stories about this “Wroxeter” place.

    well, not too many people know this but in the 1960s-70s there was an old prep school outside of Annapolis, closer to Severna Park named “Wroxeter on the Severn” – legend has it the academic requirements were not the best in the state, but their lacrosse team was. They fielded two of the all time best: Jeeper Lindsey and Mole Burnett, but there were numerous GREAT lacrosse players from Anne Arundel County who are tied in some way to this old school. It closed down sometime before 1980 due to lack of funding I think.

    I don’t have a contact, but the article attached has some good info. There is also a FB page for Alumni of the school…a virtual tour would be a really cool way to pay homage to this great historic site in Annapolis.

    Very cool idea, Ken. I like it a lot. Kinda Mysterious.

    Dville Oysters sound amazing, too.

    Received a request for the 9th Green at Annapolis Roads Golf Course, but think it’s a joke. I played there last Wednesday and it was struggling.

    William Paca House and Gardens does not appear to have a very good web presence.
