This scenic pine filled campus with a Rocky Mountain backdrop, is home to America's future Air Force officers. Enter Colorado's third most popular attraction at the North Gate for a glimpse of a B-52 bomber. Travel six miles to the visitor center, chock-full of exhibits, short films and a gift shop. Tour the stunning Cadet Chapel with 17 magnificent spires reaching 150 feet into the sky. Or check out Falcon stadium where the Air Force Falcons Football team plays, and keep an eye above where the skies are colored with cadets practicing parachuting and flying Thunderbird jets.
Wonderful visitors center. Enjoyed the movie, the memorabilia,and the gift shop...watched the cadets march into lunch and even saw some parachuters practicing. The grounds are gorgeous as well as the chapel. You'll need a full 3 hours to do this stop right.
