cozy breweries or restaurants in Colorado Springs  (3 Answers)

I'm headed up to Garden of the Gods/Pikes Peak region in July, driving up from New Mexico and would like to enjoy a local brew while I'm passing through- maybe as stop for lunch before we head to the campground. Any suggestions for me? I like cozy/casual atmosphere, nothing fancy, I will be with kids and dressed for a camping trip. Center/West side of town preferred.

Requesting a suggested 4 day Colorado itinerary!  (7 Answers)

I've just booked a flight to Colorado Springs for an extended weekend trip in August. Plan is to fly to Colorado Springs, arrive at 9 AM on a Friday. Returning home on following Monday, departing at 5:30 PM. This gives me from 9 AM Friday, all day Saturday, Sunday, and a good portion of the day on Monday. Basically, I see my itinerary has having 4 days, and 3 nights. I am looking for a suggested day by day itinerary, what to see/do, what towns to overnight in.

I do know I want to take the cog railway up to Pikes Peak, and I want to do a drive through Rocky Mountain National Park. Also, interested in visiting either Aspen, or Summit County or both.

Following is a list of attractions that I've noticed:

•Pikes Peak
•Rocky Mountain National Park/Estes Park
•Seven falls
•Garden of the Gods
•Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine in Cripple Creek
•US Mint tour
•Coors Brewery Tour
•Molly Brown House Muesum
•Aspen
•Summit County
•Walk through Georgetown
•Georgetown Loop Railroad
•Glenwood Hot Springs

With regards to the above sights and attractions, it's only just a list of possibilities. Perhaps too many considering I have only 4 days. Also, we are open to other suggested ideas too. The only things on the list that are a "must do" is Pikes Peak and Rocky Mountain National Park. Other than that, I'd like to fill our 4 days with as much sights as possible, or as much as realistically.

Any suggestions for a day by day itinerary to see and do as much as possible?

Thank you so much.

Driving into CS from Utah  (1 Answer)

We'll be coming into Colorado Springs on I-70 from Utah tomorrow evening. Is highway 24 better or is I-70/25 through Denver better? I'm assuming that the scenery is better on 24 and that I-70/25 would be faster. Is that correct? And how is 24 at dusk or nighttime?

Thanks

Colorado Springs in July  (4 Answers)

Hello. My family and I will be in Colorado Springs in July. We have two children, both under 10. I have read some of the interesting info on the city, but I am just wondering if anyone has "must see" places for us considering the kids. Also, places to avoid? I am also wondering about the altitude issue. Should I worry too much about this? We have never gone to Colorado before, so this will be our first trip and we don't know what to expect. Thanks!
