Annapolis' strong naval connection
Thanks to Annapolis' United States Naval Academy, the city has a large population of naval recruits and the infrastructure to support them. You can find most of this along the scenic waterfront district, which is lined with shops, bars and restaurants. This happens to be the spot where many of the city's walking tours begin, before leading you to other attractions including the Naval Academy and grand old St John's College.
At the Naval Academy, you can explore the grounds with a certified guide and gain access to the informative museum. While in Annapolis, prove your seaworthiness on an adventure aboard an actual pirate ship!
