Annapolis Tours by Watermark considers its “Four Centuries Walking Tour of Annapolis” the very best it can offer to tourists. According to the company, this tour will connect visitors to America’s historic events as they relate to the Maryland state capital. History buffs will certainly have their fill by seeing 400 years worth of Annapolis history in less than 3 hours.
A knowledgeable guide dressed in colonial attire will lead their guests through Annapolis’ historic district and into the Maryland State House, where George Washington resigned as Commander in Chief after the Revolutionary War in 1783. En route to the United States Naval Academy (USNA), which was founded in 1845, tourists will pass several 18th century mansions and discover the importance of their famous residents, as well as their magnificent architecture.
Watermark’s guides are certified by the USNA, and they will lead their guests on an inspiring tour of the Naval Academy, where the future leaders of America’s Navy are trained. The tour will include the Naval Chapel, the Crypt of John Paul Jones, and Bancroft Hall. Visitors can watch the midshipmen’s Noon Meal Formation, weather and schedule permitting, during the academic year.
