It is also home to the U.S. Naval Academy, whose historic chapel will be inspiring to travelers of any religious background. The Beaux Arts-style chapel, whose iconic dome is a key feature of the Annapolis skyline, was built in two sections. The original section, finished in 1908, was built in the shape of a Greek cross. A nave added in 1940 changed the shape of the chapel to that of a Latin cross. The chapel seats up to 2,500 people and hosts both Protestant and Catholic worship services every week. Visitors can see the chapel as part of Naval Academy walking tours. The chapel is also open to the public for visits and prayer when regular services or special events are not taking place. Visitors must show a photo identification to enter the academy grounds. WHILE YOU'RE THERE: Annapolis companies and outfitters offer groups many ways to get out on the water and explore the Chesapeake Bay. Traditional boat cruises offer scenic views and informational narra- tives. More adventurous guests can opt for paddleboarding, fishing charters and other nautical excursions.
