Visit Annapolis: U.S. Naval Academy

Visiting Annapolis without stopping by the Naval Academy is like flying to Rome without walking through the Colosseum or passing through Cairo without so much as a glimpse at the Pyramids.

Visit Annapolis: Trolley Tour

Few things are as ubiquitous in historic districts as the trolley tour. From St. Augustine to Boston you could pretty much make your way up the I-95 corridor just hopping from trolley tour to trolley tour. So naturally, in a town as historic as Annapolis you’re going to find a trolley tour.
