National Landmark red cliffs and the even more striking Pikes Peak mountain attracts tourism to Colorado Springs.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like North Cheyenne Canon Park and Starsmore Discovery Center and Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. Take a break from the city and head to Climbing Tours and Kings Deer Golf Club. Venture out of the city with trips to Calhan (The Paint Mines Interpretive Park & Rocky Mountain Roosters). There's still lots to do: hike along Palmer Park, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Bristol Brewing Company, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and admire the landmark architecture of Phantom Canyon Brewing Company.
