Wow – It’s almost overwhelming at the sheer amount of activities, adventures, and attractions available in the Pikes Peak Region of Colorado. Here you will find a true Rocky Mountain experience!
Adventures Out West
This place is pretty much a one-stop shop with many thrills! Adventures Out West brings toys for you to enjoy in the gigantic playground of the Pikes Peak region. One of the highlights of my trip was our Segway Tour through the world-famous Garden of the Gods. It’s known as one of the more challenging Segway routes in the United States. Our guide gave us lots of fun facts about the Garden of the Gods and even a Segway lesson before the trip!
The Broadmoor and Manitou Pikes Peak Cog Railway
After completing an expansive restoration project, the Cog is back on track to usher in a whole new era of adventure on Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain…and boy is it beautiful! They have a renovated depot, new trains, and miles of new tracks that take visitors on an exciting journey that’s been around for 130 years. This 9-mile journey to Pikes Peak’s 14,115-foot summit travels through multiple life zones with exceptional panoramic views.
Echo Canyon River Expeditions
If you are looking for an extreme whitewater rafting trip, scenic float, or a camping adventure, Echo Canyon is who I’d recommend. This is where you strap in for a wet and wild ride across the rapids of the Arkansas River. They have any equipment needed for your adventure and half-day, full-day, and multi-day, rafting trips available. Our trip was absolutely the best white water rafting trip that I’ve ever been on.
All this and more is at the foot of Pikes Peak and is the quintessential ‘Rocky Mountain Experience.’ Now I understand why the Pikes Peak Region has been such a longtime popular vacation destination for generations of Texans!
