“Don't miss it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2013

This is one of my most favorite places in Maryland. They have a very nice chapel and an amazing museum. A must-see place in Annapolis.

“Nice Campus”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Seeing the Naval Academy is a way of getting a good feel of Annapolis. Much of Annapolis life is centered around the midshipmen. Local private schools even get off for mid's graduation. The campus is nice and there are many historical sights to see. A tour can always improve your experience. You will have to show I.D., considering its a military base. If you are Christian, Sunday masses are held in the chapel and they are magnificent. The chapel s a breathtaking sight.

“Go Visit the Navy”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Annapolis has so much going on, but a visit and trip to Annapolis MD without a stop at the Navy Academy is not complete. The Academy is full of places to see and explore, a picture ID is all you need to get in. The Naval Museum is worth the time, so is the Visitors Center (wathc the short video - runs every 30 mins) and the Chapel. All Americans should be proud to see "Their" Naval Academy, with world-class facalities, history and location make this well worth the time for a visit. If you can go around mid day you get to watch the midshipmen march to and return from Lunch. The grounds are well mainatined and the walk around the waters edge has amazing views.

“A must see in Annapolis”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 14, 2013

Wonderful historical site thoroughly enjoyed, must see cathedral and memorial hall. Great naval museum. Look for a parking spot outside of academy grounds and walk through the gate
