There are two ways you can experience the TREATY OF PARIS TRAIL: A Walking Tour or a Bus Tour (or both!).

Our bus tours are a 60-minute excursion to the three more important stops of the Treaty of Paris Period: The French Soldiers' Camp, the Old Senate Chamber in the Maryland State House, and the site of Mann's Tavern.

Our walking tours are provided by Colonial Tours and take participants on a multiple-stop journey through the streets of Annapolis that includes the same three stops of the bus tour plus an additional ten sites for those who want the entire Treaty of Paris Period experience! Walking tours last 120 minutes.

At each of these three stops, you'll meet colonial-attired historical figures and participate in the events that took place there: The military hospital and the departure of the French soldiers for Yorktown; the resignation from the Army by General George Washington and the ratification of the Treaty of Paris; and the 1786 Annapolis Convention, just after the start of Shays's Rebellion, that called for a Constitutional Convention the following year in Philadelphia.

Tours depart from and return to the National Pre-Constitution Center. These are the only walking and bus tours in Annapolis that include interactions with historical figures, interpretive centers, and re-enactments of key events.
