Colorado Springs Things to Do: 184 reviews and 364 photos

The U.S. Air Force Adademy is a Colorado Springs must see. It's in a beautiful setting, right at the foot of the Rocky Mountains. The campus itself isn't as picturesque as, say, West Point (the U.S. Army's equivalent academy), but keep in mind it's a much newer institution.

The centerpiece building must be the Chapel, which is in the shape of (what else) airplanes (actually, fighter jets!). You'll recognize it immediately.

Admission is free, though security is likely more stringent since my visit (before 9/11). If you're ever in Colorado Springs, you gotta go there.
