Air Force Academy

Hotels near Air Force Academy, Colorado Springs, United States .

The US Air Force Academy is located just to the north of Colorado Springs, Colorado, on a vast plot of land. The academy itself was established in 1954 in response to pressure from various groups within the government and military to give the newly created Air Force its own cadet academy much the same was as the Army and Navy already had theirs (in West Point and Annapolis, respectively). The first graduating class finished their studies in 1959.

The academy offers Bachelor of Science degree programs to cadets, and most graduates end up getting a regular second lieutenant commission upon leaving the academy. The Air Force Academy has been highly praised for its rigor and academic excellence, recently being ranked as the second best public college in the country by Forbes Magazine for its "America's Best Colleges 2009" edition.

Visitors are allowed at the academy's campus (though of course certain areas are off limits). Visiting hours are daily from 8am-6pm, while the Visitor's Center itself is open from 9am-5pm. Group visits must be notified ahead of time.
