History Museum
“From website, "The Penrose Heritage Museums's extensive collection contains 31 horse-drawn carriages and 13 motorized vehicles, including three Pikes Peak Auto Hill Climb race cars (circa 1920s), Mrs. Penrose's 1928 Cadillac limousine, and a 1906 Renault. The Penrose Heritage Museum doors recently re-opened to a brand new 8,500 square foot facility adjacent to Broadmoor Hall. Several new exhibits are featured, along with a Broadmoor casino table, authentic Native American artifacts, antique firearms and a collection of vintage riding tack-saddles, harness." This museum is FREE and near The Broadmoor, so I'd combine it with a stop at The Golden Bee and a stroll through this 5-star hotel.”

Park
“One of nature's wonders, it's a must see while in Colorado Springs. We highly recommend going by bike or vintage scooter as parking is a challenge during the Summer months. You can rent a low-power scooter from Vintage Scooter Adventures which is located at The Garden of the Gods Trading Post, 324 Beckers Lane, Manitou Springs, CO. Fun times, great rates, wonderful experience all around. Highly recommend!”

“Great local hiking only 10-15 minutes away with many trails. We recommend Mt. Cutler for an easier hike. If you want more of a challenge, Mt. Muscoco is at the same trailhead Dogs are allowed! Leash laws are not as strictly enforced-just don't let your pup run wild!”
