Colorado Springs Airport Guide

Make sure you visit the National Park called the Garden of the Gods which has dramatic rock formations that local tradition says were formed to make a garden for the native Indian gods. It’s also a great place for rock climbing.
You can also see the mountain called Pike’s Peak which inspired the song ‘America the Beautiful’.
The city also has a Ghost Town Museum which incorporates an old gold mining town that was abandoned after the boom. If you fancy a bit of cowboy action, spend a day being a cowboy at the Flying W Ranch which, after a hard day in the saddle, puts on a cowboy meal and then a Wild West show before songs around the campfire.

Colorado Springs Info

Colorado Springs was founded by William Palmer in 1871 as the first destination on the railway that he had founded. He wanted it to be a resort town and built a fabulous hotel with the idea of attracting wealthy tourists. The railroad continued to bring tourists attracted by the excellent climate, superb views and clean air. Today, the presence of a US military base has helped the city survive the economic downturn.
