When I was first told that visiting te NAVY was worth, I was quite skeptic. Afer visiting the place I was just amazed about it, and after some years when I returned to Annapolis, I visited it again. Huge and nice place located in between large old buildings, cadets, trainning fields, the sea and beautiful gardens. Its a must when... More

The Academy is a must see. It embodies everything that is good about this country you could not spend your time in a better way. They military officers and people you run into inmate at the Academy are all cut it but it makes your heart beat fast.

My father is an alumni of USNA and so I've had the privilege of being given the tour by someone with intimate stories of the academy. However, anyone would enjoy their visit. You can tour the grounds, visit the museum, gift shop, chapel, and the crypt of John Paul Jones. I suggest watching the video in the visitor's center as... More

A nice place to visit, but a fair amount of walking involved but all flat. Cant park onsite but there are plenty of paid parking lots in Annapolis with one fairly close. The chapel is a must stop. Huge pipe organ and vault ceiling. Interesting throughout the grounds. You enter through only one gate and information on this entrance location... More

A colleague and I stopped by the Naval Academy while we were in Annapolis over the summer. It was interesting to take a look around and there are some great views of the harbor from here (not to mention cadets in their Navy whites). I used to live on the Air Force Academy and this school campus had a very... More

The Naval Academy is a great place to visit. If you sign up for a tour you'll learn a lot about life for the cadets. We saw them in formation and were fortunate to see a wedding while on the tour! The location on the water is beautiful as are the historic buildings and Naval museum.

Visitors are welcome to tour the grounds and if lucky watch a class of cadets in action. Beautiful campus with so much history! Nice cafeteria for stopping in for lunch or a snack. Wonderful museum to wander through. Fantastic gift shops too!
