Enjoy Colorado Springs!

It is wonderful that you are planning on attending our wedding. If you like sunshine and outdoors, Colorado Springs is a wonderful place for taking a break, hiking or just relaxing. In a picture-perfect location below the famous Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs offers a number of attractions: hike through Garden of the Gods’ strange red rock formations, take a ride on the cog railway or browse the shops in the low-key downtown area.

The Colorado Springs Visitor Center (719-635-7506; www.coloradosprings-travel.com; 515 S Cascade Ave; 8:30am-5pm) has all the usual tourist ­information.
