Spectacular sights in Colorado Springs are not hard to find. You could start with the breathtaking red sandstone rocks at the Garden of the Gods, and continue with Cave of the Winds, whose rock formations date back 500 million years. The Manitou Cliff Dwellings will give you an insight into how the Anasazi people lived seven centuries ago. Be sure to see the Seven Falls in Cheyenne Canyon; you might want to go after dark when the 181-foot waterfalls are illuminated. Feeling active? Spend a day white water rafting through the Royal Gorge. For a more relaxing time with scenic views, try the Pikes Peak Cog Railway, the world's highest cog train.
Lovers of wildlife mustn't miss Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, with its stunning view from the mountainside. The zoo has an excellent conservation programme and there are 190 species of animals to view, from meerkats to giraffes. The youngest members of the family will love the chance to ride on a pony or carousel. More interested in prehistoric beasts and fossils? The Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Centre at Woodland Park is worth a visit. If you want to see the best Stegosaurus skeleton in the world, then head for the Dinosaur Depot Museum in Canon City. It also has a collection of eggs and nests, but perhaps its most unusual exhibit is a twenty-foot fossil tree.
