It was a nice area to walk and appreciate the young people pursuing a career in our military. There was a small museum near the entrance that was interesting. A free activity for anyone on a small budget.

Walked around campus at the completion of challenge week. Met a cadet who was kind enough to educate us on the program and how they progress. Very disciplined individuals and honorable.

Such a historic and pretty sight. Definitely visit when classes are in session. You'll see cadets in uniform and make sure you are their to catch their "dress parade." Very impressive.
