As a foreign national it was really interesting to visit the Naval Academy. Everyone was so friendly, from the marine who checked bags and ID at the entrance to the people in the Visitor Centre and even the Naval personnel that I spoke to. I got to see sailors on parade and have a great time wandering around.

Such a fun day being escorted around the tour by a very nice tour guide. Such a well kept grounds and such tradition and history. Well worth the time to tour and a must to see the short movie at the Visitors Center. People need to be able to walk up and down stairs pretty well for the tour. The... More

Love this place. So much history and memories...pre-9/11 you were able to freely tour the campus, now you need to know someone or have special permission. No matter, you can still see plenty from the outer fringes.

If you are a bit of a patriot, you'll get a sense of pride for the type of young men and women who give their lives over to our country. Yes, they're getting a free education, but they do pay dearly in other ways. The visitor center has lots of displays to give a sense of history and process, and... More

We did not take the guided tour of the academy. We opted to visit ourselves at our leisure. It was an interesting and informative visitor center which included a short video in the theater. We were at the dock and decided to walk the 2 blocks over to the Naval Academy.

Had a nice walking tour of the campus. $19 pp. They have wheel chairs if needed in case someone cannot walk the entire tour. Tour guide was very knowledgeable.

This place is amazing. John Paul Jones crypt, the Chapel, watching the midshipmen parade. So much history to see, especially graduation week and watching the Blue Angels fly. Just walking around the USNA is so beautiful along the waterway, makes you feel proud!
