Family Fun in Colorado Springs by Rich Herman
Colorado Springs is the second
largest city in Colorado, and is located about an hour south of Denver.
Set against the backdrop of Pike's Peak, Colorado Springs still has many
historic buildings from the booming days of gold mining in this area. This
is a beautiful mountainous area offering spectacular views and a favorite
vacation spot for many. Aside from the great scenery, there are many fun
things to see and do while visiting here. Here are some of our personal
Peak - This is the most visited mountain in North America and stands
14,110 feet above sea level, towering over Colorado Springs. There are
several ways to reach the top. You can travel over the 19 mile Pikes Peak
Highway (paved part of the way), hike the 13 mile long Barr Trail, or take
the Pikes Peak Cog Railway. The Cog Railway is a favorite of many. It is
a 8.9 mile trip and normally operates from April through December.
Garden of the Gods -
A Registered National Natural Landmark with 300 foot towering sandstone
rock formations set against the backdrop of beautiful Pikes Peak. There
are 15 miles of trails for those who love to hike. Group hikes and tours
are also available along with guided horseback rides. Tours are available
by bus, and every half hour a new tour begins. These last about 20 minutes
and are narrated by trained guides that are very knowledgeable about the
history and geology of the park.
Manitou Springs Cliff
Dwellings - A rare historical treasure located in Manitou Springs at
the foot of Pikes Peak. It is open 7 days a week pretty much year-round,
and you can easily spend the entire day exploring this area. Authentic
Anasazi cliff dwellings, built over 700 years ago, are well preserved and
protected under a large red sandstone overhang. There is also a nice museum,
gift shop and snack bar located nearby.
There are so many other fun
things to see and do in this area, with over 50 different attractions.
Visit the Air Force Academy, take a mine tour near Cripple Creek, visit
the Olympic Training Center, or enjoy any number of outdoor activities,
in this beautiful area that enjoys over 300 days a year of sunshine. Hopefully,
this gives you some good ideas for your next family vacation. Take the
time to create fun family memories together. You will be glad that you
did. Have a great time!
