Colorado Springs Travel Guide
Welcome to Colorado Springs!
Colorado Springs is located in the Central Rockies region of Colorado, near Pike's Peak, one of the most frequented mountains in the United States. Despite its high altitude location, Colorado Springs gets less snow than Denver and Salt Lake City, Utah, which in turn allows visitors to get out and enjoy the splendor of Colorado without uncomfortable weather extremes. Activities are abundant here and include fishing, hot air ballooning, rock climbing and golfing, to name a few. One popular local destination is the Garden of the Gods, a park with an interpretive center and a variety of ecosystems and wildlife habitats. Museums are abundant here and encompass a variety of topics, such as the themes covered at the World Figure Skating Museum, the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame and Colorado Springs Pioneer Museum. For families, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo boasts a collection of more than 500 animals, including 25 endangered species, including tigers, elephants and giraffes.
