Annapolis – Home to the United States Naval Academy

hats-557581_1920

Established in 1845, the United States Naval Academy in Annapolis is the second oldest of the five
United States service academies. Its primary focus is to educate officers for the United States Navy and
the Marine Corps; and admission, which is typically only granted after nomination by a Member of
Congress, is highly regarded. Tuition to the United States Naval Academy is funded by the United States
Navy in exchange for fulfillment of an active duty service obligation immediately upon graduation.
Prestigious alumni include Jimmy Carter, John McCain and Roger Staubach.
An Annapolis historic treasure resting on 338 acres which were once Fort Severn, the United States
Naval Academy is home to many historic buildings and memorials. It’s also a great place to visit because
its location – 33 miles east of Washington D.C., 26 miles southeast of Baltimore and at the convergence
of the Chesapeake Bay and the Severn River in Annapolis, Maryland – is convenient to everything.
The best way to experience the true splendor of this impressive institution is by taking an historical tour
led by a certified, professional United States Naval Academy tour guide. You may even get lucky enough
to schedule your tour on the same day as one of the many musical or theatrical events held on The Yard.
Tours are currently on hold due to the coronavirus, but until private and public tours can once again be
scheduled, there is also a guided “walking” video tour online.
