The US Naval Academy hosts an annual leadership conference and we had the opportunity to attend this year. We heard excellent presentations, experienced lunch with students, and heard a presentation by Michael Bloomberg at the Alumni Hall Auditorium which easily accommodates 4,000+ people.

I am sorry, I do not know. We had our car with us so we had no need for an Uber or train. Baltimore is quite far away from Annapolis.
