Although only authorized vehicles are allowed to drive onto “the yard,” visitors are walking to the yard in herds. Many patriotic Americans have been anxious to support and learn more about the Navy. The stop includes a walking tour, the US Naval Academy Museum and recommended lunch at the Drydock Restaurant or Officers and Faculty Club. Contact US Naval Center Visitor Center, 410-263-6933 or www.navyonline.com.
More than 1.5 million people tour the US Naval Academy (30 miles from Baltimore and Washington DC) every year. Even with the attacks on America, people can visit the facilities like years past.
