“Must stop and see”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Lliving here is Colorado Springs we always forget USAFA is also an attraction. We pass it on the Interstate everyday and it is just there. This is a great place to bring out of town family or friends. The visitor center is great and the chapel is breathtaking. Remember to get tickets for a football, basketball or hockey game. Too much fun and you cannot help but feel patriotic.

“reunion 1987”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Great to see the place again, it was freezing but fun to see a football game and tailgate. The tailgate was put on by the academy and they did a wonderful job trying to keep everyone warm with heaters, etc.

“Huge facility - Kids loved it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

The children were facinated by the vastness of the campus and the variety of sights. The Chapel is a highlight. Really enjoyed attending a football game in their stadium (loss to service academy rival Navy). Great gameday experience - friendly crowd, wholesome atmosphere.

“Love USAFA!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 6, 2012

Breathtakingly beautiful! Seeing the gliders up in the air, watching the cadets from the Wall (see why they call it the ZOO now), the Visitor Center is HUGE and expansive amount of beautiful property, the Chapel is as amazing up close as it is from I-25 as you approach the Springs. So very glad we took the time to see it! A definite do not miss!

“Don't Miss It”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

If you're going to be in the Colorado Springs area then you don't want to miss taking a tour and drive through of the USAFA. You'll find great scenery and be able to see up close the campus of this truly all-American facility. Best of all...it's FREE.
