Colorado Springs Metro - South Central Colorado

Includes Black Forest, Fountain, Monument

Nestled at the base of majestic Pikes Peak - the historic mountain that inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write "America the Beautiful" - Colorado Springs and its surrounding area offer an endless number of thrilling activities.

Visitors can ride the Pikes Peak Cog Railway to the mountain's 14,110-foot summit or brave the twists and turns of the historic Pikes Peak Tollroad Scenic Byway. Other natural wonders in the area include Cave of the Winds, a natural cave system that offers everything from easy walking tours to muddy, spelunking adventures, and Garden of the Gods, an area filled with breathtaking natural red rock formations.

Closer to town, vacationers can stop by Old Colorado City, the original site of Colorado Springs and a registered National Historic District, to catch a glimpse of restored 1800s architecture, sample fine dining and explore local shops. Historic Manitou Springs offers hikes in the surrounding forests or - for the tamer at heart - strolls through town to sample its namesake natural springs.

Head to Colorado Springs' north side for a tour of the United States Air Force Academy. Sports fans can catch a baseball game at Security Service Field, where the Sky Sox - a feeder team for the Colorado Rockies - play all summer long. Or keep going and stop in Monument for fishing or ATV and snowmobile trails.

And though its unlikely any vacationer could run out of things to do in Colorado Springs, the surrounding Pikes Peak area offers even more fun things to do, from hiking and fishing to gambling and theme parks.

Commercial air travel accommodations are handled by Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. Please contact your preferred travel agent or airline for flight arrangements.
