This mile-high town offers a myriad of outdoor activities and attractions for RV travelers. There is a wide variety of motorhome accommodations, all right in the heart of the beauty and splendor of this popular city. Cruise America has an RV rental center in Colorado Springs, or you may choose to rent from other Colorado locations in Denver, or Fort Collins. While visiting this beautiful city, consider some of these attractions:
Pikes Peak – One of the most famous mountains in the United States, Pikes Peak rises over 14,000 feet above sea level. In 1961 the uppermost portion of the pike was designated as a National Historic Landmark. It was there that Katharine Lee Bates, after being taken back by the beauty of the view from atop the peak, wrote the words to the song America the Beautiful in 1895. There is a host of activities in the Pikes Peak area for the family to enjoy, and there are many beautiful RV parks where you can station your Cruise America motorhome rental.
American Numismatic Association (ANA) Money Museum – This is a museum dedicated to nothing but money! There are a variety of exhibits which are continually changed and renewed. The real showpiece of the museum is the Harry W. Bass Jr. coin collection. This collection is filled with one of the world’s most complete collection of gold and one-of-a-kind experimental “pattern” coins. The museum offers up an incredible display of US paper money, tokens and bank drafts, all with a high degree of historical pertinence.
Manitou Cliff Dwellings – At the foot of Pikes Peak, overlooking Manitou Springs, you will find these ancient Native American dwellings. You may wander through the preserve at your own pace, taking in the feelings of antiquity as you gaze upon a true slice of history. This rare structure has been well preserved for over 800 years, as it is situated under a protective natural red sandstone overhang, keeping the weather from eroding the architectural wonder. Guests are welcome to wander from room to room, exploring the Anasazi cliff dwellings.
Anyone considering RV rentals, Colorado Springs makes for a perfect motorhome travel experience. It was actually awarded the title of the Number One Best Big City in “Best Places to Live” by Money Magazine in 2006. It was also designated as number one in Outside’s 2009 list of America’s Best Cities. In order to know, however, just how beautiful this country is, one must experience it first hand, and a good way to do that is through the front windshield of your Cruise America rental RV.
