Colorado Springs, an easy 60-mile drive from Denver, is a pretty city...a metropolitan area with a small-town feel. Attractions here are varied and unique. Pike's Peak towers majestically over the area, the inspiration for the song "America the Beautiful." The Air Force Academy is a popular destination with its distinctive campus and pageantry-filled football games. Visitors also enjoy the red rocks and natural beauty of Garden of the Gods park, while sports enthusiasts tour the U.S. Olympic Training Center. Historic and elegant Broadmoor Hotel, a Colorado Springs landmark with on-site ice rink and golf course, continues to set the bar for superb lodging.
