PLACES WE LOVE
When I think about what makes
Colorado Springs one of my top regional
stops, my thoughts veer toward
accessible outdoor recreation, an upand-coming,
trending city with a variety
of activities-and, of course, the scenery.
Amazing geologic formations flank
surround the area, while snowcapped
Pike's Peak, with its recently opened
Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center, plays
hide-and-seek among the clouds. It's
hard to imagine a visit to " the Springs "
that doesn't include playing outside.
Hiking and mountain biking trails
crisscross the landscape, including
those within Garden of the Gods-the
obvious go-to. The Columbine Trail,
located within six miles of downtown,
is a moderate, sometimes-shady trail
four miles one way to Helen Hunt Falls.
For more of an adrenaline boost, fly
over the Royal Gorge on North America's
highest zip line or climb one of the 85
technical routes at Red Rock Canyon.
Personally, I like to stay a little more
grounded. Horseback riding, fly-fishing
and whitewater rafting on the Arkansas
River keep me on the level and are
convenient excursions. For example,
the AAA Five-Diamond hotel, The
Broadmoor, offers guided fishing trips
in addition to luxury accommodations
and A-plus hospitality.
With such a breadth of athletic
pursuits, it's little wonder the United
States Olympic & Paralympic Committee
has its headquarters in the Springs. The
" Olympic City " also holds the Olympic &
Paralympic Training Center and the U.S.
Olympic & Paralympic Museum, which
Mia Hamm, Michael Phelps and others
were inducted into this year.
Downtown continually offers
something fresh. Independent boutiques
and eateries line the blocks along Tejon,
Platte, Boulder and Kiowa streets, as
well as the east and south sides of
downtown. I like poking around this
part of town, and when I look up from a
storefront toward the Colorado-blue sky,
the beauty of a mountain-kissed horizon
brings me joy.
