The nice thing about Colorado Springs is that most of its recreational and sightseeing opportunities are as family-friendly as could be.
1. Garden of the Gods is a celebrated sightseeing spot in Colorado Springs. This national landmark features stunning sandstone formations that rise in rosy-hued, elaborately jagged peaks around the visitors who hike, cycle and picnic in the park.
2. Pikes Peak Cog Railway is another favorite, especially with kids in tow. It will whisk you more than 14,000 feet above sea level, allowing you to catch some extraordinary views of the Rockies.
3. The 146-acre Cheyenne Mountain Zoo boasts the largest giraffe herd in the world — which you’re allowed to feed by hand.
4. Royal Gorge Park offers you and the kids a breathtaking view from its world’s longest single-span aerial tram.
5.Manitou Springs, which is nearby, is a great places for the kiddos as it offers the Paleozoic-era Cave of the Winds, a boon for budding spelunkers as it offers a myriad of stalactites, stalagmites and crystalline formations, and Miramont Castle, a Victorian-era landmark that’s not only gorgeous but also, some say, haunted. High tea is sure to be a treat for aspiring princesses; if you’re visiting in April, escort your two- to ten-year-olds to the annual Easter Egg Hunt and Luncheon.
