Perfect for a family vacation, Colorado Springs is located near the base of Pikes Peak, one of the most famed mountains of the US. A weekend spent here can only be relaxing; imagine gazing at the dark night skies full of millions of twinkling stars, the fragrance of barbeque rising from the parks and backyards, and the gentle stirring of the lush green trees. One of the most popular places to spend time at in this town is the Garden of the Gods, which are formations of red rocks created during a freak geological upheaval. One of the most popular attractions here is the Balanced Rock, which is a wonder of nature! A huge rock balanced precariously on another, ready to fall off at the slightest shake of the earth. It is now cemented in place although you can hardly tell from a distance. For lovers of art and theatre, the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Pioneers Museum is perfect. Even coin collectors can find something to fund their hobby, at the American Numismatic Association Money Museum.
Finding accommodation here is easy because there is no dearth of a wide range of hotels in Colorado Springs. The La Quinta Inn & Suites, a luxury hotel in Colorado Springs, is quite popular among international as well as US travelers, thanks to their swimming pool well equipped fitness center as well as free breakfast and Wi-Fi.
