The Air Force Academy was a great place to get a first hand view of how our future leaders are trained. The academy allowed the diversity of the students to be supported yet they worked as a unit.

Take the trip just to see the chapel. The place is quite beautiful. There are a lot of displays around the visitors center. I can imagine that this place has helped a number of young people to decide to attend this academy.

Came here with a large group and had limited time to explore but what we saw was awesome. The cathedral is very impressive, i enjoyed that very much. Was great to see the cadets out in formation and also they were very friendly and approachable.

The visitor center has a great variety of souvenirs. The chapel lives up to the hype. There is a path from visitor center to chapel which is pleasant and offers information on AFA.
