Welcome to Annapolis
Home of the United States Naval Academy, Annapolis is also the state capital of Maryland. Located on the Chesapeake Bay, 33 miles east of Washington, D.C. and 30 miles southeast of Baltimore, Annapolis enjoys mild weather with average winter temperatures of 33º F and summer temperatures around 90º F.
Lincoln Military Housing offers 16 military communities in Annapolis, comprised of 336 homes servicing the United States Naval Academy.
The city is rich in history and heritage: George Washington and Thomas Jefferson once strolled the picturesque streets near Annapolis harbor, and, today, its downtown has been established as a National Historic District, housing some of the finest 17th and 18th Century buildings in the country. It is also home to St. John's College—the country's third oldest college—with its 400-year-old Liberty Tree—one of the last trees of its kind in America named to commemorate the legendary meeting place of the Sons of Liberty before the American Revolution.
Annapolis is filled with opportunities for fun adventure. A sampling includes the Chesapeake Children’s Museum, Patuxent National Wildlife Refuge, Pirate Adventures on the Chesapeake, and a visit to the archaeological digs at Historic London Town and Gardens. And for science lovers, be sure to visit the Cryptological Museum and Historical Electronics Museum.
