There are many reasons to visit the AF Academy. The museum and Chapel are the two most visited attractions in the USA. Also try to time your visit to see the cadets assembled on the commons. You would also enjoy watching cadets train in gliders, small aircraft, and parachute on all but the worst weather days.

My daughter and granddaughter both graduated from here. It is the first place we take relatives/friends who come to visit. The gorgeous chapel is my favorite. Check out the Sunday services and listen to the pipe organ and choir

Beautiful setting! Staff was very helpful and friendly at the Air Force Academy Visitor's Center. The Cadet's Chapel is lovely and worth the time to visit.

This is free to the public. They have replica rooms that the cadets live in at the visitor center. The areas that you get to visit are eye opening. We arrived in the commons area prior to lunch and saw the cadets lined up and parade into the mess hall. The chapel and stadium are very unique.

USAF Academy Chapel is lovely and beautiful architecture. It was nice to be able to walk in to browse without interrupting any services. The "hike" from parking lot was an easy stroll and beautiful surroundings, especially with the snow coming in. Just a nice easy relaxing visit. Would recommend better prices at souvenier shop. Most visitors have a connection the... More

We were in Colorado Springs for the day and added a short stop off at the Academy too. We maybe spent an hour tops visiting the Chapel and Cadet area and then walking a nature trail up to the visitor center. We could have easily spent more time, but this felt sufficient for us.

I picked up tickets for an Air Force Academy Football game and had a blast. This stadium didn't have a bad seat in it. Looking forward to going again soon.

Always humbling to step onto the grounds where the men and women of our military serve. The chapel is beautiful, the most prominent point on the campus.

The high point of my time here was seeing the Chapel once again and it is the most beautiful chapel in America, I also enjoy the visitors center which was very informative and well done to explain the history and local of the academy.
