Planning a visit to Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak region? You've come to the right place!
PeakRadar offers the region's only comprehensive web events calendar, spotlighting arts and cultural performances and exhibits and select sports and outdoors activities.
The Pikes Peak region is the gateway to Southern Colorado and includes Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, Cañon City, Cripple Creek, Woodland Park, Victor and Green Mountain Falls. Lured by more than 300 days of annual sunshine, over 6 million visitors visit the region each year.
Colorado Springs was founded as a resort colony, and to this day tourism remains the city's third largest industry.
Evidence of the Pikes Peak region's first artists, the Ute Indians, remains etched on the rocks at Garden of the Gods Park. Since then, the area has continued to attract artists lured by the region's unparalleled natural beauty. At the turn of the century, inspired by a trip to the summit of the Peak, Katherine Lee Bates penned what has become our country's most famous poem and song, "America the Beautiful." Today, from the world-class Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center to the historic artist colony of Manitou Springs, the region overflows with cultural offerings. In the summertime alone, there are more than 100 opportunities to hear free, live music in our parks and open spaces. Whatever cultural opportunity you are seeking, you'll find it here at PeakRadar.
