Hike and Happy Hour in Hanover


With social distance advisories still in place, you may be looking for new ways to spend your time. This weekend, we suggest a hike followed by an outdoor happy hour in Hanover. The Baltimore & Annapolis trail is just around the corner from our apartments in Hanover, MD. Pick a Saturday or Sunday to grab your water bottle, sunscreen, and a friend to enjoy the outdoors with (from a safe distance). 

Where to hike 

The Baltimore & Annapolis Trail is less than 20 minutes from our Arundel Hill apartments. If you’re looking for a weekend pre-brunch hike, an afternoon hike and drink, or a new spot for your morning walk, this trail may be your new go-to. The trail is mostly flat and paved and is approximately 13.7 miles long. 

There are options to bike, walk, or run, and many spots for visitors to pull off in order to rest or grab a snack. This website provides recent reviews of the trail, while offering a few tips and observations. Remember to bring a leash if you decide to bring your pet.

Where to eat and drink

After the hike, head over to Vivo Italian Kitchen & Wine Bar to order takeout. Their menu is available online and includes decadent options like crab cakes and risotto. They also offer cocktails to-go, including margaritas, rum punch, strawberry lemonade, and sangria. If you decide to hike or bike earlier in the day, you can grab brunch to go instead. Vivo’s delicious food and drinks are the perfect way to end your hike.

The hiking trails and restaurants for happy hour in Hanover are a great way to spend a weekend day. The Elms at Stoney Run Village is less than half an hour away from these and many more attractions. If you have any questions joining our apartment community, please contact us today.
