ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WMAR) -
The Annapolis Mayor is working to promote the City's walkability by launching the "Walk Annapolis" campaign.
The goal of the campaign is to boost local businesses by promoting how easy it is to walk from the City's five business districts. Those districts are City Dock and Main Street, Maryland Ave and State Circle, West Annapolis, West Street and Eastport.
Mayor Joshua Cohen unveiled the campaign banner showing satellite images of the five shopping districts, overlaid with the footprints of nearby shopping malls to dramatically highlight the similarity in scale.
"One of the qualities that makes Annapolis special is that we have unique, locally-owned fashion boutiques and specialty gift shops tucked in between art galleries, pubs, restaurants, and inns," Annapolis Mayor Josh Cohen said. "The opportunity to enjoy the historic and maritime charm of the city, while walking through the various shopping and dinning districts, is just one example of Annapolis' enduring appeal."
