The Hungry Detective conducted a drive by while arriving at the Commandants Office. This institution is so rich in history and tradition. A drive around the parade grounds will make the hair on your neck stand up!!!

We loved The Citadel! Great campus. My son was there to check out the school and everyone was friendly and upfront. Our tour with the cadets was great!!! The Parade is something you need to see!

The Friday closing parade is very impressive. Just the scope of the parade is enough to give you chills, but the thought of all those young kids, spit shined and disciplined, gives you courage that our country will survive us in pretty good shape.

Will definitely love parade that is mid afternoon on Friday....The campus is overall open as far as viewing and taking in. Specific requests and activities are on the website and they do respond to inquiries pretty quickly..
