This whole place is situated along the Hudson River. Absolutely beautiful scenery. The buildings are all huge gray stone buildings, like castles. We toured 2 days before the new cadets were to arrive, so we didn't see many students, only a few around the "barracks" (dorms). West Point Tours drives a tour bus around the facility and gives an informative... More

Unbelievable beauty and history to this place. Much nicer to visit as a parent/tourist now than when there as a cadet way back when. Is truly like no other place. Take the time to walk around - so much to see. Even if not a history buff - very interesting and beautiful sights everywhere. Of course you have to see... More

The grounds are amazing, so beautiful and so much history to take in. We self toured with a cadet and watched the Women's Volleyball games which were so much fun. Felt so much pride for the students and the Country while visiting this site.

Don't miss this amazing historical site. The beautiful grounds are a history Museum in real time. Walk the beautiful grounds where some of America's greatest leaders were trained and where some the most historic events in US History took place. Beautiful beyond belief don't miss it

We live nearby, but hadn't been to West Point in years. We took the two hour tour that left from outside the visitor's center. (Keep in mind, they only accept cash, or at least they did when we were there.) We boarded a small bus and it made three stops: on the campus where we saw the field and the... More

West Point Military Academy is a beautiful place and this review is really tailored to those that are thinking of spending a period of time in the area. West Point itself gets 4 solid stars...beautiful. However, if you are staying in the area at a local hotel and eating in the villages (there are no cities here), then a BIG... More

It is the most beautiful of all the U.S.M.A'S, situated along the Hudson River. The History here is amazing, from the old fort, to Trophy Point. One could wander aimlessly around the grounds and be amazed at every turn.

Was amazing to see Cadets on parade !! Had lots of questions about churches and other bldgs....and no one could answer. Be nice if there were brochures at places tourists visit. Know there is a book in gift shop but, many to not go to gift shops.
