My Opinion: I’ve been to Colorado Springs many times and I really enjoyed the area I have done a 100 on this list that at least 25. I love Garden of the gods, the laser show I saw at the wins was spectacular although I don’t think they are bad anymore. The Royal Gorge Bridge is freaky as it’s the highest suspension bridge in the world. Has been to Cripple Creek, I’ve been to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and the Broadmoor. But find more places that I have discovered is awesome so far to get back out to Colorado and were going.
