Create an itinerary including U.S. Naval Academy
Established in 1845 and first called the Navy School, trains naval officers with a four-year, college degree program. Candidacy is hard-won because each student must apply directly and also be nominated by a member of Congress. The campus is commonly called "The Yard," and you'll find many halls cover the 137 hectares (340 acres) area. The campus is also dotted with monuments commemorating U.S. military history. Visit the Tripoli monument, the oldest military monument in the U.S. Follow the Stribling Walk of 16,000 bricks to find others, such as the Mexican monument. Inside the academy, the chapel and the rotunda leading to Memorial Hall are inspiring examples of American neoclassical architecture. Make your Annapolis itinerary with Inspirock to find out what to see and where to go.

  • United States Naval Academy was established in 1845. This institute seeks Creme de la Creme applicants. An applicant must apply directly AND be nominated by a Member of Congress. Program is intense both physically and mentally. All costs are paid by the school in exchange for Service. When you see the Army Navy Football game, you're watching West Point play Annapolis. US Naval Academy is open to the public.
  • Tour guide was great. He explained everything well, took questions and gave detailed answers. Beautiful campus. Great history.
