Unfortunately, the day we visited it was cloudy so we couldn't experience the view. I would imagine it would be quite beautiful. The memorial itself was well done. We took the time to read the signs around the edge providing historical information. I was a little surprised to see so many weeds in the beds around the memorial. I'm hoping... More

If it's a nice day and you are not in a hurry, I would recommend pulling off the road and spending a few minutes watching the boats sail by.

Worth a small side trip, the Maryland WW2 Memorial will remind you of the many veterans who sacrificed for our freedom. Of course, Annapolis is a Navy town, so the reminders of ALL the services who participated is a good thing. This is a 10-20 minute visit - worth the stop.

The day view from this site is great, but the night view is stunning. Have a bite to eat at the Severn Inn and spend some time at the pier at sunset and then drive up to the Memorial and check out the incredible views and ambience.

There are several steps to get up to the memorial which probably makes it more difficult for our WWII veterans to come see it, but once there you are rewarded with a beautiful solemn memorial. It is inscribed with the names of 6,454 Marylanders who died in World War II It has views of the Naval Academy, Chesapeake Bay, and... More

We took an hour trolley tour around Annapolis and were able to see this memorial. It is very well done in a beautiful setting high enough to overlook the bay and Annapolis.

Very good memorial to see. At the top area, it also overlooks the United States Naval Academy. Beautiful site. Must be able to walk up several steps.

This was the first place we visited in Annapolis. You can take a left directly into the monument from the highway. There is a small parking space just behind the monument. It was almost empty when we reached there in the afternoon. There is a viewpoint just above the monument and there are two pathways around the monument that take... More
