Places of Interest in Colorado Springs
Garden of the Gods
This is a nature park with strange red colored sandstone structures that are precariously balanced in a tapering form. With all its scenic beauty and wonder that looks best at dawn and dusk, the park is considered best for hiking, mountain biking, and horse riding trails. If for nothing else, you should visit it for the once-in-a-lifetime experience of touching this geological fault line with your own fingers and trying to understand how they are still standing defying all rules of gravity.
U.S. Olympic Complex Training Center
This is where the top guns of U.S. Olympic Committee sit. You can also visit Olympic Visitor Center and take a free tour of the U.S. Olympic Complex, the Irwin Belk Olympic Pathway and other training facilities. As you’d probably expect, the legendary representation of a burning torch is also placed at the top and it provides a 360-degree view of the facility and its premises.
Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
It has two parts - the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Fine Arts Center Museum. The former is a prominent art gallery and latter is all about musical plays. You’ll find the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center a real treat for art lovers because the collection is more than just exhaustive. The museum features works of contemporary, Latin American and American Indian artists.
