Highly recommended by local friends to visit West Point. Decided to drive to the academy from NY which was barely 50miles. Traffic in the afternoon wasn’t too bad. Required a little walk as parking was easily available. Pleasant season during fall to visit the campus....More

Good overview tour for first time visitors, pick up bus in front of new visitors center and West Point museum. 75 minutes with knowledgeable guide, a Swedish transplant. Just right length. Longer tour available with addition of WP cemetery, an additional hour.

If you have the interest, make the time to visit. It is worthwhile. It is a moving experience. The two hour tour takes you all around the Academy and really gives you a feel for the Cadet experience, the history and the architecture of West...More

If you want the complete West Point experience, stay at the Hotel Thayer. It is right next to the Academy and has history and ghosts going for it. Otherwise, stay at one of the wonderful Inns in Cold Harbor.
