The sculpture was nice and you can sit by the water which is always pleasant in the summer. There are also a lot of nice restaurants and shops nearby since it is located in the historic district...

Nice memorial/sculptures located right by Main Street and the city docks of Annapolis. The location of the memorial is beautiful. Located in the heart of Annapolis.
