United States Naval Academy 游记 & 攻略

Author: Ruofei

Verita and I visited the United States Naval Academy (USNA) during this weekends. The GPS address is

121 Blake Rd, Annapolis, MD 21402

For non-US citizens, please make sure that you has brought your passports and driver license with you before departure. There is security and ID check at the entrance.

Additionally, non-US citizens cannot park inside the campus; nevertheless, the parking lot near the main entrance of the Armel-Leftwich Visitor Center is very convenient:

一言以蔽之,非美国公民请带好护照,从访客中心停车场进入USNA校园~ GPS Location of the visitor center is:

52 King George St, Annapolis, MD 21402

Brunch Recommendation

We had our brunch at the Miss Shirley’s Cafe. I believe that it is the best breakfast I have ever had in Maryland so far. The GPS address of the cafe is:

1 Park Pl Annapolis, MD 21401

We especially love the yummy banana coconut French toast as well as the fried green tomato ice cream waffle (dessert)! There is a garage which is only $1/hour near the cafe; the road-side parking is also not difficult to find compared with the Annapolis downtown. It is indeed a splendid cafe with the supreme service.

After checking in, we got a timer which is able to notify us for seat. We waited for approximate 20 minutes, wandering around, finding many interesting stores to visit. The food in Miss Shirley’s Cafe is really beyond expectation!

Now let’s turn to USNA. After the security check, we entered the visitor center. Lots of exhibition is going on in each hall.

At the end of the center, you ‘ll find the gift shop. However, the gift shop is TOO EXPENSIVE so please ignore it unless you have a military ID or really love the souvenir they provide. (The souvenir is much better than that of UMD…)

Walking out of the dock, you’ll enjoy the beautify dock with sea.


The campus of the USNA is very pleasant for a walk. Very few people are around and we both enjoy the shrub, the statue of hero, weapons and college logo, as well as the lavender!

We happened to visit a wedding in the campus. Happy new couple!

Finally, if you ever want a pleasant afternoon 30 minutes from DC. Come to Annapolis and enjoy the walking in Annapolis. You won’t regret it 🙂
