Colorado Springs

by JanetLC

We will be in Colorado Springs for 2 1/2 days. Will we have time to see Royal Gorge, Seven Falls, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Garden of the Gods and drive up to Pike's Peak? Is there anything we should not miss?

Re: Colorado Springs

by Frontierflyer

The Royal Gorge is not in the immediate Colorado Springs area. It is west of Canon City on US Hwy 50. From Colorado Springs at least an 1 hour and 30 minute drive. You have not said when you will be visiting the area, so the drive up Pikes Peak could depend on the local weather. If it is operating, I would suggest that you ride the Cog Railway up the mountain. That gives you the chance view all the great scenery on the way up without the hassle of driving up the dirt road to the top. Other interesting locations in the Colorado Springs area are the US Air Force Academy and the US Olympic Training Center.

The Cog Railway is a must, if it's operating. Also check out Manitou Springs, Colorado City and maybe the Broadmoor. The Downtown area is also interesting, and the Colorado Springs has several great brewpubs, if you're interested in that.

Yeah, check out B's at the Broadmoor. One of the coolest pubs I have ever had the pleasure of getting sloshed in. Beware of their 1/2yard beer glasses.

Cog train all the way. Way better than driving to the top of pikes peek.

Travel Tips for Colorado Springs

God's Garden in Balance

by grandmaR

There's a fantastic site of natural sandstone sculpture outside of Colorado Springs. The sculptures have various names - the ones I remember from when I was a child were the Kissing Camels (last photo) and Balanced Rock.

When my mom died, I found that she had a whole collection of antique postcards, including some of the Garden of the Gods. The site got it's name in August of 1859 when two surveyors started out from Denver City to begin a townsite, soon to be called Colorado City. While exploring nearby locations, they came upon a beautiful area of sandstone formations. M. S. Beach, who related this incident, suggested that it would be a "capital place for a beer garden" when the country grew up. His companion, Rufus Cable, a "young and poetic man", exclaimed, "Beer Garden! Why it is a fit place for the Gods to assemble. We will call it the Garden of the Gods."

The area is now a city park which was deeded to the city by the children of Charles Elliott Perkins, the head of the Burlington Railroad.

Why do we call it the Garden of the Gods?

by OlenaKyiv


Many people assume the name Garden of the Gods comes from a native American name for the area. In fact, the name of the park only dates back to August 1859 when two surveyors helping to set up nearby Colorado City were exploring the nearby areas. Upon discovering the site, one of the surveyors, M. S. Beach, suggested that it would be a "capital place for a beer garden." His companion, the young Rufus Cable, awestruck by the impressive rock formations, exclaimed, "Beer Garden! Why it is a fit place for the gods to assemble. We will call it the Garden of the Gods." The beer garden never materialized, but the name stuck.

Palmer Park-HUGE park in the middle of the city!

by kimod74

Palmer Park is one of the cities most prominent landmarks. It is located right in the heart of the city and provides a wonderful variety of hiking and biking opportunities. The area was donated by General Palmer for the enjoyment of all the citizens way back in the early 1900s.

Monument Creek Trail

by John195123

This is a great trail, close into the city, easily accessible, and very well maintained. It's all gravel. This trail runs, I think, all the way to Pueblo, Colorado. There are problems, including homeless people who have attacked people even in broad daylight, but on nice days there are so many people out that the trail is safe. Unsafe sections would be closer to downtown where there is much less traffic.

Bavarian Food To Die For

by painterdave about Edelweiss

Wiener Schnitazel, Jagerschnitzel, Bratwurst, Sauerbraten, Strudels, Black Forest Cherry Torte, wines and beers of Germany.
These are only a portion of the menu created by Heidelburger Helga Schnakenberg.
If you have been to Germany you know what to expect. This restaurant will take you back to Germany and leave you with a pleasant memory of great food. You will want to return again and again to enjoy all the Edelweiss has to offer. On my last visit I chose Sauerbraten with that tasty purple German cabbage. It was totally awesome.
The luncheon menu is good for a person on a budget as it is cheaper.
They have outdoor seating for the Spring through Octoberfest time. On Friday and Saturday evening there is German folk music provided by two musicians dressed in Bavarian Lederhosen.
Acoustics are good, and it is not a noisy restaurant.
In the winter ask for a table near the fireplace for more atmosphere.
