Honestly the history and prestige that shadows this campus is awesome. The minute you step on campus you know your in a special place.

This is a beautiful campus. Rich in history. Set at the point where the Hudson River makes a 90 degree turn and there are mountains all around. Beautiful year round regardless of the season. The cadets are being challenged mentally, physically and academically. They like their surroundings almost as much as I did, those that I had the pleasure of... More

This is a must see if you are in the area. The views are breathtaking (especially at sunrise and sunset) and there are great opportunities. Be sure to get a guide.

The Plain of West Point and views are the best ever, even in the Winter. Looking back toward the barracks and Cadet Chapel provide a memorable view/picture. Then standing on Trophy Point viewing the cannon and monument to Civil War Veterans is impressive. You can also have a great view of the Hudson River. Of course, the best time is... More

I think that visiting West Point is much more interesting if a friend or family member is stationed there. For some reason it gives you more interest in what the various buildings are, how the place functions, etc. Without that, it’s still an interesting place to visit, but it’s quite a drive to get to it from Manhattan, and outside...

I was at West Point for 2 weeks in 2004 while in Army Reserves. I trained Cadets on the rifle range. During free time I looked around historic West Point. Beautiful! Many brick buildings. Outdoor pavilion by the Hudson river. Museum was nice. Cadets were interesting.

If you're around West Point during the football season, or basketball season or youre in to hockey, thats the place to be and games to attend! Real Army spirit! And yes, the Army teams are the best. On the other note, if you're not in to sports, enjoy this very interesting Hudson Valley architectual gem. Strategically located on the Highlands... More

If you are in the Hudson valley, an army hockey game at west point is definitely a worthwhile activity. Great for kids and families. The price is right and the atmosphere is phenomenal.... Go army!
