The architecture and atmosphere of this beautiful AFB is nothing less than breath taking. The chapel will be closed for repairs to years of water damage in 2018, get their soon and don't forget your camera.

Beautifully situated, the Academy is a nice visit. The Chapel is the architectural highlight and should not be missed.

The Air Force Academy sits at the base of a mountain with beautiful views. I enjoyed the Visitors Center with lots of information on the Academy's history. The Chapel is very pretty from outside and I hope to go in if we visit again.

We took the USAFA tour. A very beautiful place. The walk is strenuous and not handicap accessible in some parts. The Cadet Chapel will be undergoing renovation for about 4 years, which is too bad. The Chapel rooms are all decorated beautifully with stained glass...More

The Academy is a part of our country's military heritage. It's fun to see the museum, the cadets, watch the glider launches and then watch the flying, but the "Chapel" is the real Don't Miss Spot. Each major world religion has its own chapel and...More

No cost to visit. You will need a government issue photo ID to enter. Also, be mindful, if traveling with any weapons, they can not be brought into the facility.

It depends on how big your RV is. I don't believe there is room in the visitor center parking lot for a large RV. There probably is room at the PX shopping center, but it is some way from the visitor center. Not sure if they... More
