    We stop here every time we come to the Springs. Our dog loves it here. She absolutely loves the creek! For the most part the dogs get along great. I just really wish that there weren't so many small c...  more »

    The trails are amazing. It's great for kids as theirs a lot of information around to learn from. One of my favorite places to go and just be.

    I've loved this place since I was a kid and it just keeps getting better. Great educational resources for kids AND they do birthday parties! My son loved holding "Tiger" the tarantula.

    This small little nature center has a lot of events that you can come check out. If you are just passing by, they have a small museum full of information of the animals that live here and that you may encounter. It has activities for little kids to do there and a small movie theater to watch information of the bears around the area. The little hiking area around the nature center is also quite an enjoyable experience. It is a great place for hiking beginners and people who just want to relax.

    Loved this place when my son was tiny. Now that he is older we still enjoy hiking here. For preschoolers they have great programs and even school age kids have field trips to this beautiful park. Lots to see and discover here, they are very helpful folks and annually host a teddy bear picnic. We have even seen a hummingbird's nest here once. You never know what you will find once you walk out your door........

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
