Founded by civic-minded adventurers who extracted their first fortunes from the booming gold mines of nearby Cripple Creek, Colorado Springs still offers a sense of adventure. This quality is no doubt furthered by the hilly city's breathtaking proximity to the mountains, stunning geological displays accessible via many parks and the base of majestic Pikes Peak, which dominates the view for miles in every direction. Tour the U.S. Olympic Headquarters and Training Center or hike through Seven Falls, "The Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado." The Broadmoor Hotel & Resort is one of only 13 triple five-star hotels in the world.
