National Geographic Traveler columnist Christopher Elliott recently visited the Washington area with his family. His three-part series, Inside-Out With Kids, explores the DC region from different perspectives. Today they make a detour to Annapolis, Md. Here’s the previous story.

Then you walk down Main Street and get on with your day.
