Discovering West Point Academy

Join us in discovering the rich historical significance of West Point Academy which dates back to 1723. Situated in the beautiful highlands of the Hudson, marvel at the native granite Gothic style structures, the 160-ft tower of solid masonry construction without a steel frame and the great chain that was stretched across the Hudson during the American Revolution.


There are two tour bus options; a 2-hour tour [$15] and an 1-hour tour [$13]. You are responsible for purchasing your tickets on-line [link provided below]. Most of the tour is walking; wear comfortable footwear. In addition, time will be allotted for the museum, visitor's center and gift shop. Each participant MUST HAVE valid photo identification, i.e. driver's license, passport.  Every effort will be made to form carpools; meet in front of Visitor's Center at 9:30am. Group size limited. This is an all-day activity; optional after-activity dinner at a local eatery.

    Thanks, Terry for another great adventure. West Point is a fabulous place to visit and explore. The weather gods worked in our favor and we could not have had a more beautiful day. The post-meetup dinner
    was excellent.

    Still interested in carpooling. Anyone else interested? From my location, north on NJ Turnpike, and on up the Garden State Parkway...

      I just RSVP'd so you may already have your carpooling arrangements made but I live in the far Northeast and would be interested in carpooling if you still have space.

      I am carpooling with someone who lives near Princeton Junction train station. I live in Fairless Hills, not far from Rt 1 and I-95. If you would like to discuss further, please email me at [masked].

    I'm interested n joining in on this trip. However, I'm not able to drive, so if anyone is able to get a good carpool together, could you please let me know? Thanks.

    Uhm...How do people get there? Google maps says it's 3 hours from where I live in Newark Delaware.

      Rebecca - We are driving to West Point; we can try to find you a carpool - let's see if anyone signs up that could be a match.

      Hi Terry, thanks for the reply. I really want to go. But I need a ride. I am a new driver and not confident about driving there and back.

    It's beautiful up there! Can't wait to enjoy it again with new people.
