Beautiful architecture by architect Ernest Flagg in the French Beaux-Arts style with small mansard rooflines, makes you think you might be walking the streets of Paris. Lovely campus and history rich buildings everywhere you look. Free admission and open door policy to almost all buildings. Great tour at the visitors center with Betty Denaj (fee for tour).

Not to be missed on your first trip to Annapolis. Take the 75 minute guided walking tour. The best tour in town for a very reasonable price. You'll see Midshipmen dormitory and Chapel. Great gift shop at the visitor's center where you pick up the tour. Lovely guides and front desk personnel.

We waked throughout the Naval Academy, a very beautiful campus on the banks of the Severn River.

If you are in Annapolis, this is a must see. A first class college with great architecture and outstanding students in uniform. Preeble Hall is my favorite, inside the Academy grounds.

No visit to Annapolis is complete without a stop at the U.S. Naval Academy. Better yet, visit during college football season and attend a home game to watch the parade!
