Great to see the history of United States Air Force. Remember this is a college campus also. Only use the north gate a exit 156 there is no 156A or B as what the GPS said. If you come the south the GPS will tell to get off at the south entrance do not. The chapel and its organ should not be missed. Make sure you bring IDs. It is Free!

This is a national treasure designed by man in the midst of awesome natural beauty. We enjoyed the Visitor Center and particularly enjoyed the design of the chapel. They were a little lite on bathroom facilities and we were there on a very warm day, otherwise a terrific visit.

I was in awe of the size and beauty of this area. There is a self-guided drive with optional pull-offs at various locations. The chapel and its organ shouldn't be missed. The visitor center offers some history of the academy and can be viewed in about 20-30 minutes. You must enter the campus on the north side (exit 156 if I remember right). The south entrance doesn't admit visitors.

Fun chapel. Visitors center is self guided and a huge gift shop. Didn't see video but heard its good. Not much else to see here though so it's just a quick trip.
