One of the most prestigious, and beautiful schools I think in the U.S. is where I go. The Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park can't be described. First off its located on the Hudson River, as you can see. It just adds an extra landscaping feature, which grabs your eyes if your able to walk the paths behind the school. It also happens to have a small pond with a waterfall, and shooting fountain in front of the main building. Hey if your hungry while visiting this school for food, it happens to have 3 on site restaurants to eat at. Im not trying to be biast, but if you visit there im sure you will agree!
