WWII Memorial Annapolis Reviews
Feb 18, 2008
Sandwiched between the lanes of a highway, the World War II memorial of Annapolis combines an older overlook (great view of the Naval Academy) with a more modern design on the lower level. The lower level is a circle of tall walls in narrow segments, a few of which have the names of those from Maryland who served in the war. A series of about 20 informational plaques give a strong overview of the war on both a national and state perspective. Two small circles just outside of the circle of wall segments reveal the Pacific and European theaters. The center of this outdoor memorial is designed to also work as a small ampitheater.
The memorial is handicap accessible and easy to view. The most difficult part can be getting into the correct lane for the parking lot since it is a left exit. No restroom facilities.
If you have the time, try visiting the memorial in the evening as well; the lights from the city across the river are beautiful.
