Discover Colorado Springs, the second-largest city in the state of Colorado with a population of 400,000. The Rocky Mountain wonder is situated at the foot of one of the most famous mountains in the world, Pikes Peak, aka, America's Mountain. The city's natural resources, military might, high-tech and successful tourism promotion as the "gateway to the Rocky Mountains" are the cornerstones of the city's economic growth.

The beauty of the Rocky Mountains, especially Pikes Peak, is just one of the many lures and attractions to the city known as the "Springs," "Little London" and "New Port in the Rockies." There are many unique geological wonders to explore and enjoy including the Garden of the Gods Park, Seven Falls and Cave of the Winds.

Coloradan's are on a Rocky Mountain high when it comes to Olympic-size cultural, educational, and historical attractions such as the US Olympic Center, United States Air Force Academy and Peterson Air and Space Museum, Colorado Springs Philharmonic, Pikes Peak Center, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and the American Numismatic Association Money Museum.

Come to Colorado Springs to breathe in the mountain air in a city that entices outsiders with its scenic beauty and resort style amenities.
