colorado springs is the second largest city in Colorado. Attractive mountain scenery is nearby. In my last holidays I went to Colorado Springs. This city has many famous mountain peaks which are famous for hiking. I went there by plane. I reached there in an hour. From the airport I hired a car and I went to my hotel. I searched this hotel from net by the keyword cheap hotels. I got a site which was offering great discount at cheap prices. I booked my hotel from this site. This hotel was really very decorated and was offering me great discount at cheap rates. The rooms were very clean and hygienic. After relaxing for some time I decided to travel the whole city. it was a seven day trip and I had to travel the whole city in a week. There are lots of places to see in the city. But I had developed a list of attractions to see.

The first place I would like to mention is garden of gods. garden of gods is the formation of dramatic sand stones enclosed by the city park. It is excellent for hiking and mountain climbing. The second most famous place is pikes peak. Pikes peak is the most famous peak in the city. you can drive to the top or ascend down to earth. Again the next famous place is cog rail.Cog rail is the place where there are all types of wild flowers grown up. Due to this it is really beautiful in the summers. You can hike up to the peak. You can also run in a marathon. Cave of the winds is the series of caves near Manitou Springs.

Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is a small scenic mountain zoo with many exotic animals. The lavish grounds at the base of Cheyenne mountain are worth seeing. This is a really a beautiful place. The next attraction to visit is seven falls. it is the privately owned series of falls and trails. If you are not be able to visit seven falls in the weekends rthen you can watch the neighboring falls named Helen hunt falls. Helen hunt falls has some great views from the some height. United States Olympic Training Center is the Olympic training facility, with an aquatic center, gymnasiums, shooting center, and velodrome. The next famous location is United States Air Force Academy. This a cademy is nestled in the foothills of the Rampart range at the north end of town, you can tour the famous Chapel and other sights. May natural historic museum is a very amazing museum. Thousands of large insects are collected by John May from around the tropics. Garden of the Gods Trading Post is the largest art gallery and gift shops in colarado. Experience the 1800 old west town frozen in time. These are the gold rush days.

There are lots of things to do in Colorado Springs . You can do hiking here. Pike National Forest to the west, Pikes Peak, and numerous city parks offer ample hiking opportunities. You can do horseback riding in colorado springs. Academy riding stables can be done in garden of gods. You can do cycling here. Rock climbing can also be done here. White water rafting can be done in Arkansas river. You can also play skating and volleyball.

I suggest to all the readers that if they are planning to travel in colorado springs they should book cheap hotels in colorado springs. I found these hotels really cheap and affordable. They provide world class services at very cheap rates. They offer upto 70% of discount to the customers. The hotel is very clean and very pleasing environment was there. The name of one hotel in which I stayed was Crowne Plaza Colorado Springs. There are several hotels of this type you can select one and can stay there, I am sure you will not regret after it.
