Our city tour guide drove us through the campus of The Citadel. The grounds and buildings are impressive. It was nice to see the many students dressed so nicely in uniform and purposefully going to class or other activities.

This is a wonderful institution. The campus is awesome. I love the park that bis right outside the gates of the campus. This is also a wonderful place to watch a football game. I really like the stadium.

This was 20 minutes well spent. Easy to get to. and as it is on the river facing west you can see a great sunset. One of only, ten I believe, military colleges in the United States, worth seeing the parade field and retired military...More

Will definitely love parade that is mid afternoon on Friday....The campus is overall open as far as viewing and taking in. Specific requests and activities are on the website and they do respond to inquiries pretty quickly..
