The one hour tour is a must and going when school is in session is the best time. The lunch time assembly of midshipmen was one of the most amazing rituals I have seen. Beautiful buildings and such history!

I wanted to just visit the chapel but ended up spending hours not he campus and WOW, it was so impressive and beautiful. The chapel was beautiful. The John Paul Jones crypt was so beautiful. Another very impressive building was the Bancroft Building. It was very humbling seeing the list of names of servicemen who paid the ultimate price for... More

A national treasure. You must take the tour and listen to the history of where so many leaders of the United States started their careers in the US Navy and United States Marine Corps. The gift shop is outstanding. The wooden ships museum is one of a kind. The grounds are nothing short of spectacular.

This was an excellent tour and one that should not be missed. It gave one a view of the US Naval Academy that is amazing. We were fortunate to be there for the formation for lunch and it brought goose bumps...

Love to see these students and their dedication. Every one of the midshipman were in great shape. The Academy's grounds and buildings are worth a walk around. The crypt of John Paul Jones was very interesting.

We took the $10 guided walking tour of this historic campus. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable. It was very warm, and she was able to keep us cool and shaded as much as possible. It was an enjoyable and interesting 90 minutes.

Definitely a must if visiting Annapolis. My friend and I had a tour guide who took us around the Naval Academy and provided us with a lot of history about the naval academy. The tour was also very informative as to the expectations and requirements the midshipmen need to endure in order to get their commission.

This sprawling campus is free to visit, just be prepared to show your ID and go through security. It gives unparalleled views of Chesapeake Bay which you will not get at the Harbor. There is also an array of beautiful architecture that is monumental in nature. More along the lines of Washington DC then the quaint offerings in Annapolis. The... More
