US Naval Academy Foundation, Annapolis

(4.8/5 based on 2,000+ reviews on the web)
Established in 1845 and first called the Navy School, trains naval officers with a four-year, college degree program. Candidacy is hard-won because each student must apply directly and also be nominated by a member of Congress. The campus is commonly called "The Yard," and you'll find many halls cover the 137 hectares (340 acres) area. The campus is also dotted with monuments commemorating U.S. military history. Visit the Tripoli monument, the oldest military monument in the U.S. Follow the Stribling Walk of 16,000 bricks to find others, such as the Mexican monument. Inside the academy, the chapel and the rotunda leading to Memorial Hall are inspiring examples of American neoclassical architecture.
