There is no doubt that one of the best outdoor venues to enjoy music is located at West Point. The United States Military Academy at West Point has set aside a river front hillside that provides the perfect acoustics and picture perfect views for an evening of entertainment.

My family's favorite event is the celebration on Labor Day, however all summer long you can head to Trophy Point to enjoy an evening with with music and a view. Packing a picnic is encouraged but they also have refreshments available for purchase if you don't feel like lugging around a cooler. Bring chairs and blankets to sit on and come early to ensure you get a good seat.

This coming Saturday July 7th is the West Point Band's Independence Day Celebration with Music and Fireworks. This is part of the summer series that the band holds each year at Trophy Point. Make this event part of this year's celebrate and it is sure to become a tradition.
