Colorado Springs: Tremendous Place to Visit

There are 50 states in the United States and Colorado is the 8th largest. It was admitted to the Union on one August, 1876 as the 38th State. With the highest elevation of Colorado being Mt. Elbert at 14,400 ft. (4400m) and the average elevation being 6800 ft. (2075m) Coloradans have a lot to boast about.

Colorado is truly a state of natural beauty.  No matter how many times you drive through the mountains you will always be amazed.  Being from Colorado Springs sometimes I don’t think of all Colorado has to offer.  In life we may take many things for granted.  It is a shame that we don’t take the time to admire all the things that we have in life.  It is probably just the human aspect of us though.  

There are many wondrous sites to see in Colorado.  When you take a deep look into Colorado it is easy to see that you will get the best in many aspects of life.  The city of Colorado Springs is no different Colorado Springs is a city that is constantly growing.  It is home to just over 400,000 people and has many wondrous sites to see.

Garden of the Gods

Garden of the Gods is a public park that is free for entry.  These amazing rock formations that stand majestically out of the ground is like no other that you will see.  This is a beautiful place to spend the afternoon virtually any time of the year.  You can take your time walking around the many trails or even go a little beyond that and take in a hiking trail or two.  You can stand in amazement as you may see some expert rock climbers ascend the rocks.  This is definitely a must see attraction

The United States Air Force Academy

This Military Academy is home to approximately 4,000 cadets that endeavor to become one of the elite officers in the US Air Force upon graduation.  Here at the academy you can have a chance to see cadet life and go inside the visitor center for a closer look.  Falcon stadium is also home to the Air Force Falcons.  Air Force is a Division I school and Falcon Stadium has a capacity of about 53,000.  If you are in Colorado Springs during the College Football season go and take in a game that will surely be exciting.

Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame

This is an attraction that can serve even the best of rodeo fans.  Even if you are not a fan of the rodeos you can even gain an appreciation for it.  The Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame is designed to help preserve rodeo memorabilia and is one of the only such places in the United States

Pikes Peak

You can’t mention Colorado Springs without talking about Pikes Peak.  This is one of Colorado’s “great 14′ers” and has an elevation just over 14,000ft.  You are able to get to the top via the Cog Railway.  If you like to take a bigger adventure you can drive to the top by way of the Pikes Peak Highway.  There are also trails that you are able to hike to the top as well. 

Colorado Springs is a great city and when you are done visiting you can take in more of Colorado.  The Great Sand Dunes is an easy drive of about 2-3 hours.  This is a great example of how versatile the state is.  You have the plains on the east end of the state then the great Rocky Mountains.  The Sand Dunes is an amazing attraction in itself. 

Enjoy Colorado!
