This growing city is famous for it’s largest summit, Pike’s Peak as well as the red rock formations hidden within the Garden of the Gods. There are plenty of historical sites and museums to explore within this ever growing city. You also don’t have to travel too far to get to great hiking, biking, and rock climbing sites. This is a great city for those who enjoy history and the great outdoors.
If you’re looking to get away from the chain restaurants and find great local eats, the best places are located downtown and in Old Colorado City. Depending on what you’re craving, you can find just about anything from fondue to the famous Rocky Mountain Oysters.
The best way to get around Colorado Springs is by car. There is so much to see in this city, and if you have a lot of places you want to see while you’re here, I’d recommend renting a car. Another way to get around town is using the Metro bus lines. Transportation on these buses are very cost effective and cost from $0.85 to $1.75 for one ways. They also have full day passes and 20 ride tickets available.
