“Great access for hiking in the front range. Seven falls when frozen gets lit up and is magical to visit in the evening. It is a little expensive but well worth the visit if you've never been. Get some hot cider in the general store, ride an elevator to a viewing platform, or hike the stairs up the falls to get various vantage points for awesome pictures.”

“So we might be biased just a bit, but after having visited many zoos across the nation it's hard to find one that beats our local zoo! It probably most resembles the San Diego Zoo in our opinion. What does this zoo have that the others don't? Unbelievable views!!!”

“Drive the highest paved highway in the US to the top of a 14er! Or you can take the Cog Railway, or you can take the 13.1 mile Barr Trail to the top of the mountain! At the top a new visitor center is currently being built (you can only take a shuttle bus to the top right now). While Colorado Springs has a plethora of places to see great views, this is clearly the highest!!! There is a small cost to take the highway to the top. There is also a visitor/rest stop about 3/4 of the way to the top with more great views and a large parking lot. You can embark on your back-country skiing trip from here (experts only with permit), rest, get a snack, or take some small hikes. A crazier thing you can do is ride a bike down the mountain!!!!”
