Historic Downtown Colorado Springs
Welcome to Colorado Springs, and to this tour of some of its historic Downtown sights, presented by Insight Guides. My name is Katherine and I’ll be your guide. This tour takes approximately 2–3 hours to complete. You can stop at any time and start again at the same spot later. You can follow the route on your phone or simply listen as I guide you from one sight to the next. I’ll be giving you clear directions and the audio will automatically start playing when you get close to the next sight on the tour. Don’t worry if you need to skip a sight; the tour will pick up at the next location. One more thing before we get started – always be aware of your surroundings and be sure to obey all traffic signals!
Colorado Springs has always been a tourist destination. Early visitors came for the health benefits of the hot mineral springs, which gave the town its name. Others came for the scenic beauty of the nearby Rocky Mountains. The city lies at the foot of Pikes Peak, which rises over 14,000 feet. During the tour, you’ll see this majestic mountain from many vantage points around town. Today, Colorado Springs is a thriving modern city that spreads along the Front Range. We’re going to explore the Downtown area where some of its earliest landmarks survive.
