On the same day we ventured into Annapolis, MD. There are so many things to see here. Watching the sailboats was one of my favorites.
The Annapolis Naval School was founded in 1845 and became the US Naval Academy in 1850. It is located in downtown Annapolis, MD where the Severn River flows into the Chesapeake Bay. It is a beautiful campus.
