Red Crags Bed and Breakfast is perfectly situated to take
advantage of all the sites and attractions that the Pikes Peak region
has to offer. Within walking distance is the historic town of Manitou
Springs, home to nine mineral springs that were the initial draw for visitors to this area—these days it has much more to offer as well.
From Manitou you can take the world's highest cog railroad, the
Manitou and Pikes Peak Railway, to the top of Pikes Peak at an
elevation of 14,110. If heights aren't what you're looking for, but
you'd rather explore the depths, then consider exploring beautiful
Cave of the Winds in Manitou Springs or the scenic Royal Gorge
in nearby Canon City. If you wish to not only marvel at God's
creation, then also nearby you can witness the incredible, man-
made Cliff Dwellings or Miramont Castle.
As if that were not enough to keep you entertained we're also only
5 miles from downtown Colorado Springs or a mere two miles from
Old Colorado City. Gamblers may want to visit historic Cripple Creek
Colorado. Next to the awesomeness of Pikes Peak, the serenity of
the Garden of the Gods will take your breath away, and its just
outside our doorstep. If you're looking for something for your family
to enjoy you will find yourself well taken care of: Cheyenne Mountain
Zoo (highest zoo in the US), Flying "W" Ranch Chuck Wagon Cowboy
Show (highly recommended), Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center (Woodland Park), North Pole & Santa's Workshop, Seven Falls and more. Colorado Springs is also home to the U.S. Air Force Academy, U.S. Olympic Training Compex, and the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame & Museum.
Red Crag's location at the foot of Pikes Peak provides for tremendous outdoor recreational opportunities including,
but not limited to: skiing, snowboarding, mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, river rafting and kayaking, golf, fishing and even some not-so-typical activities like hot air ballooning. Boasting a surprising 300 days of sunshine
per year, the beauty and splendor of the landscape, along with the temperate climate encourages outdoor pursuits
