A great place to visit and tour. I took my grandkids to see several of their planetarium movies during the summer of 2019. The museum history around the academy is interesting to see. more »
The COS Racing Thinderbird Road race is the most fun anyone could have on a bicycle. It is also the Colorado State Championship race for juniors and master cyclists sanctioned by USA Cycling.
Beautiful place and inspiring. The cadet chapel is very nice. It’s a MUST visit place if you are in Colorado Springs area. Highly recommend it!
