The history from the time of General Washington to Patton. 2 presidents and Generals on both sides during our nation's civil war. To all the Great Generals of all American conflicts. The reverence of the cemetery. A must see for all Americans. A true symbol of a great country... More

Walking/hiking throughout the hilly "campus" of the US Military Academy provides plenty of breathtaking views and opportunities to work up a sweat. If you are attending an event there, give yourself an opportunity and time to hike around the post.

The United States Military Academy at West Point is THE place to visit in the Hudson Valley. With rich history dating to well before the Academy's 1802 founding, it is the longest, continuously-manned military installation in the United States. There are bus tours available, and if timed correctly (days of football games, for example), cadet "parades", where they march in... More

If you have only a limited amount of time to spend exploring the Hudson Valley, a bus tour of the U.S. Military Academy should definitely be on your list. The 75-minute tour gives an excellent overview of this slice of Americana. My tour guide, Mary, was exceptionally knowledgeable about West Point. She shared all sorts of trivia and facts about...

Visited The Academy twice last year. It has a museum and guided bus tour around the grounds. Views from the Academy over the Hudson are literally breath-taking and spectacular - literally "God's country". Would go more frequently even as a place of quiet meditation and reflection. It truly is that sort of place. Very happy with the visits although travel... More

I took my family here because my son had a swim meet here. A Historic and World-renowned Military Academy that creates our future leaders. Duty, Honor, Country. God Bless America!

Took the 1 and 1/2 hour tour of West Point which was excellent. Surely worth the money. Took the 1:30 tour great time.

The West Point orchestra performs many free concerts at trophy point. The combination of the fantastic music and the awe inspiring view of the Hudson River are a wonderful way to spend a relaxing afternoon or evening. For the history buffs, trophy point has a few interactive exhibits as well as cannon from the civil war through World War One.... More
