A period dressed guide in colonial attire will lead you through Annapolis’ historic district and into the Maryland State House*. Highlights include walking in the footsteps of George Washington where in 1783 inside the State House, George Washington resigned as Commander in Chief. Continuing through the downtown area – on your way to the United States Naval Academy – you pass many 18th century mansions and learn about the significance of their beautiful architecture. In the shadows of these buildings, your guide will share with you Annapolis history including stories of the famous statesmen that built these magnificent structures.
Our guides are USNA certified guides and will take you on an informative and inspiring Naval Academy tour. Founded in 1845, the United States Naval Academy is home to 4,000 of our country’s future naval leaders. As you tour this beautiful campus you will experience the sense of military tradition and heritage everywhere. Your visit will include the Naval Chapel*, the Crypt of John Paul Jones*, and Bancroft Hall*. During the academic year, you may view Noon Meal Formation of the midshipmen, weather and schedule permitting.
