We walked around the entire campus and enjoyed the sites. The tomb of John Paul Jones was amazing. We enjoyed an amazing buffet on the campus called The Alley. All in all a great visit and such beautiful grounds.

Visitors are welcome here- you just have to show id and have your bag scanned at the welcome center. Then you are free to take a tour or roam the grounds on your own. The campus is absolutely beautiful. I highly recommend a visit here.

Always a ‘must see’ for anyone coming to Annapolis. Park outside ‘Gate 1’ And walk in. Visitors center is great, good gift shop-but just meandering around this amazing campus is fun for all ages.

Stupendous! —- history, patriotism, organ music in the Chapel. Memorable. If it works for your schedule, try to get tickets for the annual Halloween Concert in the Chapel. On the waterfront by the athletic fields is the masthead from USS Maine

Such a beautiful place to visit. Great views and such history. You might catch the Midshipmen during their drills.

Don't have the exact address, but it is very easy to find. Also if you have a military ID, the entrance process is much simpler for your entire party.
