The grounds, buildings, landscaping and views of the water from your slowly driven car merit a day trip here. The Severn River with it's shroud of fog today could not be any more beautiful.. Of course there are many places you need to stop and walk to appreciate even more close up and more slowly. Explore the many side streets... More

We've taken a touring group of high school students to Annapolis a few times now. They always love the town and the shopping, but we are sure to include a tour of the Naval Academy. Students enjoy this glimpse into the after high school world, and the variety of campus buildings. The tour never seems to be quite the same,... More

So much History, so much to be proud of. All should come see and pay thanks to the many that really look out for our freedom and safety. Annapolis is a wonderful town and this is a must see when you are there. Lots of great buildings and history.

Beautiful buildings, lots of history in the various museums and they offer a great tour. Be sure to visit during parade times to see all the midshipmen.

Naval Academy is a vast but beautiful site. There are places new, high tech and exciting; and there are places awe inspiring and peaceful. The location is right in the City of Annapolis with an even older history. Water views are spectacular, especially at sunset. Great restaurants in walking distance.

A moving experience from the 21 gun salute to the Blue Angels fly over to the tossing of the caps - something I will never forget

A wonderful campus to walk. Bookstore is much better than most and price competitive. Take time to meet some of the midshipmen, you will be very impressed with the quality of these young Americans
