"You're in walking distance of the U.S. Naval Academy stadium, food shopping, banking, doctors, restaurants -- all within a mile," Smith says. "You can walk to the harbor and watch boats come in and out. Annapolis is a small town, just like the ones many people grew up in."

Annapolis was rated one of America's "top 10 four-season towns," but great living here is not so much about the weather as the location and lifestyle that go with it. What really draws people are neighborhoods within walking distance of downtown Annapolis, the U.S. Naval Academy and Annapolis Harbor.

In this price range, homeowners are typically looking for a two- to three-bedroom home with at least a bath and a half and a good-size yard, says Realtor Judy Lemmons of Long and Foster Real Estate.
