Perhaps you’ve visited Denver or maybe even the ski areas of Vail, Breckenridge or Aspen in Colorado?  Well about an hour south of Denver, if you’re seeking a different Colorado vibe — we suggest you experience Colorado Springs.  Some refer to this city as “Little London” while others call it “America’s Switzerland”…  Every place is certainly unique in its own way and Colorado Springs is no different — but it is the type of place that you’ll want to return to again because it offers travelers a lot along with things you’ll find familiar from elsewhere — mixed with one-of-a-kind treasures!  Outdoor enthusiasts will perhaps never get enough of the Garden of the God’s, Pikes Peak and Red Rock Canyon and more.  Military buffs will be drawn to the home of the U.S. Air Force and the National World War II Museum of Aviation.  There’s the spectacular Broadmoor Resort and Glen Eyrie Castle…  The recently opened U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum was rated the country’s top new draw in 2020, the charm and shopping in Old Colorado City is certainly popular and we haven’t even mentioned the terrific skiing options within a short distance of the city as well.  Yes, Colorado Springs is a destination for couples, families, arts and culture, outdoor enthusiasts, golfers and others.  That’s why during our live broadcast of America’s #1 Travel Radio Show on 13 March 2021, we focused on this vibrant city that’s located in the 38th State in our Nation, admitted to the Union back in 1876.  Amy Long, the CIO of Visit Colorado Springs, joined us on-air and to hear the full interview that ran across our national network of 465+ weekly affiliates airing RMWorldTravel with Robert & Mary Carey and Rudy Maxa, click on the play arrow below …
