Located in the foothills of Pikes Peak, one of the most spectacular mountains in the USA, Colorado Springs is a haven for hikers, mountain climbers, skiers and those looking for the type of rest and rejuvenation only breathtaking natural beauty can deliver. Pack the camera and spend the day ascending 14,110 feet to the summit of the Peak, which is accessible by car, along a 19-mile highway, by train or on foot via numerous hiking paths. The view from the top is so magnificent that it inspired Katharine Lee Bates to write "America the Beautiful". Back down on the ground there's a plethora of man-made attractions to explore, including the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the United States Air Force Academy and an authentic old western town reconstructed from buildings that were abandoned after the region's gold-mining era. Don't miss the Tactile Gallery at the Fine Arts Center, an innovative exhibit space designed for the physically challenged, which showcases pieces that are "touchable" and offers Braille and large-print labels.
