living and working in
CRGA is located in Annapolis, Maryland, just a short drive from the Washington, D.C. and Baltimore regions. As the sailing capital of the world and the home of the United States Naval Academy, Annapolis is one of America’s premier maritime centers, attracting more than four million visitors from around the world each year.
Since 1970, the U.S. Sailboat and Powerboat Shows have been held annually on the historic City Dock—the city’s downtown focal point meeting at the water’s edge. Local restaurants and shops line the City Dock to give Annapolis a very unique character and charm.
Annapolis has a thriving cultural scene, filled with live theater, a local symphony, ballet, and opera, and dozens of art galleries and concert venues. No matter what the season, Annapolis and the Chesapeake Bay is alive with a host of events and festivals designed for all ages.
There is no shortage of inspiration to be found among our city’s distinct culture, cuisine, nightlife, art, and architecture. Hear what some of our employees have to say about living and working in Annapolis:
“Living and working in Annapolis allows me to be close to major cities like Washington D.C. and Baltimore, but I can also step out of my front door and be in our historic waterfront downtown in just 10 minutes. It’s a perfect balance for designers to be able to gain inspiration from nature but also to be immersed in the Baltimore-Washington Metropolitan Area.”
— Christopher G. Harms, EDAC
“Annapolis is a historic town full of diversity, new experiences, and culture. One of my favorite things to do is walk downtown and see the 18th century brick homes and the sailboats in the harbor. I consider Annapolis to be a perfectly sized town with so much to offer – it’s a great place to live and work."
