Maryland is quite a remarkably large state with a good number of attractions scattered in its numerous districts. When heading to Maryland in your charter bus, don’t forget to make it a point to head to Annapolis, the capital of Maryland that features many original 17th, 18th and 19th century buildings.
One of the most interesting place to visit in Annapolis is the United States Naval Academy, the place where future officers are trained and educated. Rental bus visitors can visit the “yard”, the lush grounds of the Academy that features Beaux Arts architecture and historical naval event monuments.
Conveniently located inside the Academy Gate 1, the Visitor Center is the first stop for all coach bus visitors visiting the United States Naval Academy. All visitors 18 years old and older need to present a government issued photo ID to enter the Academy grounds.
There will be guides and information specialists ready to help you in your tour. The first thing to do when visiting this place is to view a 13-minute film “The Call to Serve” at the center. After the film, rental bus visitors are given a guided walking tour with a professional, certified guide.
Located in Preble Hall at the Academy grounds, this museum features two floors of exhibits all about the history of seapower, the development of the US Navy and how the Academy produces capable officers to lead sailors and marines.
Charter bus visitors can view many historical artifacts at the museum, where it houses artifacts and art that are the physical heritage of the U.S. Navy and the Naval Academy. At the museum, many of the exhibits combine video and audio technology to bring to life the stories of the men and women who have served their country at sea.
Some of the museum collections include:
Opening Hours: Monday-Saturday, 9am-5pm; Sunday, 11am-5pm
