Where to start??? The visitors center gives you a total picture of the Academy and what the cadets go through on their way to graduation. It gave me a sense of how proud these young cadets must feel to be part of this great country and the academy. The chapel is awe inspiring and the grounds are beautiful. The self... More

Being retired Air Force members (and my wife an Academy Grad) we love coming here and visiting. Check out the visitors center. If you're an RV'er they have a wonderful RV park.

It is incredibly impressive. Allow time for the short film at the vIsitors center, and just appreciate the setting, the vision to create this, the architecture of a modern cathederal. Words don't adequately express the chapel experience.

What a wonderful & historical place to visit. There i so much history at the Academy. Especially when you see how hard this elite group of young men and women work. These men and women could possibly be putting their lifes on line in the future to fight for the freedoms of our country.

A large and beautify campus at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. Built over 50 years ago but still looks modern. Be sure to vist all levels of the spectacular chapel. Free, but entrance may be restricted during times of crisis.

It would be A wonderful experience with a knowledgeable guide to help you and give you information about the Air Force Academy but they do not offer one. But it is a beautiful place to visit.

One place you have to visit is the chapel on the Academy, it is so beautiful , the organ and the stain glass windows are the things that stand out when you enter the chapel. If you are ever in the area this is a must see place.

A must see when visiting Colorado Springs. The Cadet area is very interesting and the Museum/ visitors center is a wonderful experience. Be sure to visit the Garden of the Gods park and the one and only Pikes Peak!!

Our Service academy's should bring pride to everyone and this is no exception. From the B52 to the chapel, this is worth the visit.
