We have been visiting West Point for close to 30 years and are never disappointed. Although freedom to explore the campus is limited since 9/11 it is still a great place. The views cannot be beat, especially in the fall. ARMY football games are the best. The cadets are extremely friendly and always helpful. Facilities are top notch. It's gotta... More

This is an amazing experience - as an ex-serviceman I had wanted to see this place for 20 years. It is a special place with a lot of history and on Game Day they pull out all the stops to make it a great family day. There are options for Tail-gate parties and also lots of food places as well....

Incredible location and awesome views. Our 'Yearling' tour guide did a great job walking us all over campus and sharing his cadet experiences. Certainly a unique campus with incredible architecture & history. After touring several college campuses before here it was also very clear how professional all cadets were and not your typical college kids. Future leaders for sure.

We did the tour of Westpoint, it was okay, the guide was informative, you made 2 stops, one at the Church and one looking at the view over the Hudson. Monuments and other building are pointed out at a distance. We also visited on Parade Day, it was fabulous, the parade of cadets is breathtaking, you get to talk to... More

If you have at least half a day stop in and tour West Point. Talk to some of the best and brightest young men and women in our country. A beautiful campus to walk.

Situated an hour away from New York City, this academy produced some of the finest military minds of the past century. The academy is situated along a picturesque bend in the Hudson. The sights themselves make the academy worth visiting. The academy is hard to locate on a map, as it is in a remote area and there are not... More

This is a perfect day out choice - the view from the academy towards the Hudson River is amazing! Of course - the tour guide is very nice and we can see cadets walking around. If you are lucky, you can get a photo with them!
