3 Days in Colorado Springs & Pikes Peak Country

Day 1: Downtown Colorado Springs & Beyond

Use your first day in Colorado Springs to explore all that the city has to offer. Downtown is a great place to start, with plenty of options for breakfast or a cup of coffee, and the new PikeRide bike-share program makes it easy to get around on two wheels. Head to Tejon Street for some window-shopping and latte sipping, or grab a freshly baked bagel at the Ivywild School, a 1916 elementary school renovated into a community market featuring Bristol Brewery, the new Axe & Oak whiskey distillery, community gardens, live music, a deli and a bakery — all selling local items. At the Lincoln Center, another former school now home to tasty tenants like Goat Patch Brewing, Nightingale Bread and several food trucks. Read full travel article here.
