The Pikes Peak region is the gateway to southern Colorado and includes Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, Tri-Lakes, Fountain, Cripple Creek, Woodland Park, Victor and Green Mountain Falls. Lured by more than 300 days of annual sunshine, millions of visitors come to enjoy our community each year. Colorado Springs was originally 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 and outdoor enthusiasts 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 annual Labor Day Liftoff balloon festival, the region overflows with cultural offerings. In the summertime alone, there are countless opportunities to hear free, live music in our parks and open spaces. Whatever leisure-time experience you are seeking, you’ll find it here at PeakRadar.
