Hike to Colorado’s famous waterfall, known as “The Grandest Mile of Scenery in Colorado” or Seven Falls. The steep enclosed canyon has been shaped by the water cascading down from Pikes Peak. Water tumbles down 181 feet, dancing across seven distinct granite faces.
Climb the 224-step staircase alongside the falls to hiking trails along the banks of the stream.
The Inspiration Point Trail at the top of the falls offers breathtaking views of the city and the plains, a sight that inspired the poetry of Helen Hunt Jackson. Stay in our lodgings in Colorado Springs, CO, just a 2.5-mile drive from the base of the falls.
Simpich Showcase is one of the only traditional marionette theaters in the United States. The owner, David Simpich, handcrafts the puppets himself and performs with a variety of dynamic voices.
Perfect for the young and young at heart, this delightful family business tells beautiful fairy tales with extravagantly decorated sets.
Tour the museum before or after the show to see stunning paintings and a lively collection of Simpich dolls, complete with the family’s history as puppet makers.
Travel through time and visit the preserved Old West town at Ghost Town Museum! This old western town has a collection with thousands of impressive artifacts and backdrops with shooting galleries and antique arcade games.
Crank a butter churn, sip an old-fashion sarsaparilla, and pan for real gold, just like the Wild West prospectors did on the Colorado frontier.
