Cool place to check out if you are in the area

We wished the Navy 44's were in the water when we visited, but we did see the sailing center and trophy room. Very cool!

I have lived in the Annapolis area for most of my life and we took the USNA Sponsored tour for the first time. It was an excellent experience. The guide was knowledgeable and certainly energetic. I highly recommend the tour to anyone who is interested in history and the Naval Academy.

Walked around the Naval Academy with a friend who lives in Annapolis. I must admit, I wasn't particularly impressed with the campus. In particular, it's pretty tiny. Yeah, it's right on the water, which is nice, but I felt a bit claustrophobic. It's clearly not nearly as nice of a campus as their much-smarter, better looking arch rivals in NY.... More

Visited the Academy on a Friday in February to tour the grounds and learn some of the history of our US Navy. The guided tour they offer is excellent, and was led by a Naval veteran named Charles. He was friendly, dedicated, and really gave a good walking history lesson. Although the tour was scheduled for 1 hour 15 mins,... More

You need to show I.d. at the gate and one of our party had an expired driver's license. He wasn't allowed in. We were there for a funeral so eventually with help from a senior officer he was allowed in. BE PREPARED WITH CURRENT I.D. I started at Gate 8 (I was told to as I was attending a funeral).... More

This is a lovely historic facility dedicated to the training of our nation's future Navy officers.The grounds were lovely and well-kept, and there are many large hardwoods on the academy grounds. The Navy's history is well-represented by monuments and war trophies galore in front of many halls. The chapel's stained glass windows were beautiful, and we saw a few midshipmen... More

The US Naval Academy is a great place to visit. The chapel alone is worth the trip, with its beautiful stained glass windows. Underneath is the crypt, burial place of John Paul Jones, which is solemn and impressive. The academy grounds are lovely, serene and peaceful.

Wonderful way to learn about what naval and marine trainees do to prepare to protect our country. The history is excellent, the grounds are beautiful, the education is priceless.

Very interesting tour and our guide was great. Glad we decided to do this even on a rainy day. We got to see almost everything except inside the chapel, due to a wedding practice. Would recommend you do this at least once if you are in Annapolis
