Colorado Springs Attractions
Behind you the prairies extend for hundreds of dry miles to the east. Ahead, the foothills rise abruptly, divided by winding streams that have carved out verdant valleys. Enter South Cheyenne Canyon – only five minutes from the very civilized Broadmoor Hotel – and you find yourself immersed in Colorado’s famous natural beauty. Discover Seven Falls today!
A rare historical treasure, the authentic Manitou cliff dwellings of the Anasazi Indians were built more than 700 years ago. Preserved under a protective red sandstone overhang, you and your family can explore inside each dwelling, touch the sandstone and roam free through these architectural remnants of American Indian culture that roamed the Four Corners of Colorado.
Over 4,000 artifacts are on display at the 27-acre indoor/outdoor exhibit site; which includes a ten-stamp ore mill, a multi-purpose center with exhibits, a theater and a 5,000-volume research library. The entire exhibit complex is an exciting and exceptional tool for learning about Colorado history, mining and industrial technology, geology, and the environment.
