Colorado is one of the most beautiful states in the country and Colorado Springs holds some of the most spectacular spots of all. Millions of pictures have been taken of our region by people trying to capture the essence of this area’s stunning beauty. And while a picture is worth a thousand words, nothing compares to experiencing Colorado with your own eyes!
The attractions and activities that Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region have to offer are the best quality and value in the state, bar none. We are mountains and so much more!
Here, you can get to the top of the 14,115-foot Pikes Peak by car or Cog Railway, or even ride a mountain bike down the mountain. Here, you can hike or horseback ride through the spectacular Garden of the Gods Park, or go deep into caves, authentic gold mines, or just go deep into our region’s fascinating and colorful history. Only 45-minutes away is the world’s highest suspension bridge, Royal Gorge Bridge and Park.
Take your family on a thrilling whitewater rafting adventure and then see Santa Claus, who lives right here in Colorado Springs at the North Pole, where kids of all ages can enjoy amusement rides and Christmas-themed exhibits year-round. Just outside of Colorado Springs is Historic Manitou Springs, a quaint and charming town that offers its own unique Colorado experience.
In Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region, we have rodeo and mining history, melodrama theatres, museums showcasing the history of the Old West and Ghost Towns, museums of insects, castles, and America’s only zoo that is build right into a mountain. Enjoy our exquisite shopping, railroads and trains, and be sure to visit the Anasazi cliff dwellings that you can walk through and touch. We have all of this, and so much more.
The Royal Gorge Dinner Train has added new local grown cuisine to the menu and the ability to ride up front with the train engineer. ( We think Sheldon Cooper would be particularly excited about this turn of events!)
