Flying To Colorado Springs With American Airlines
Nestle up to the foot of the Rockies when you take an American Airlines flight to Colorado Springs. The beauty of the second-largest city in Colorado attracts all kinds of travelers: you can see the world-class Broadmoor resort and the stunning red rock formations of Garden of the Gods below the omnipresent backdrop of Pikes Peak when you fly to Colorado Springs with American Airlines.
Gaze in awe at one of the most spectacular public parks in the country, Garden of the Gods.
This natural masterwork of red rock formations is set just east of the Rocky Mountains. Don't miss the unmistakable peaks, nicknamed Kissing Camels and the Siamese Twins. Hit the visitor center and then hike, bike, or horseback ride on the trails.
Take one of three routes to the summit of 14,100-foot Pikes Peak
It does not matter if you travel by car on the Pikes Peak Highway; by train on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway; or by foot on the trail. The peak bears the name of Zebulon Pike, who first explored the mountain, the most visited in North America.
Head just west of downtown Colorado Springs with the family to historic Manitou Springs
Between the century-old coin-operated games at Arcade Amusements to art galleries to the luxurious Cliff House Resort, the artsy town has something for everyone. You'll also find the trailhead and the railway station for Pikes Peak.
Visit the landmark 1918 resort the Broadmoor
The Broadmoor is one of the top lodgings in the West. It's worth a visit even if you're not spending the night to stroll around the Broadmoor's extensive grounds, relax with a drink at one of its watering holes, and count the celebrity visitors whose photographs line the "Walk of Fame." The Broadmoor has hosted luminaries from Slim Pickens to President Barack Obama.
See a range of American art at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center
The historic, 75-year-old property has hosted lectures by Frank Lloyd Wright and performances from dancer Martha Graham. View its superlative collections of American, Native American, and Hispanic art, catch a show by the resident theatre company or take a class at the museum's art school.
