Enjoy hikes around the Garden of the Gods and Helen Hunt Falls


On the way to Colorado Springs you will be entertained by learning about the history of Colorado. Colorado ancient history is influenced by Native Indians, the Spanish, the French, and the miners. Once we arrive you will enjoy the scenic beauty the Air Force Academy as well as the Garden of the Gods. Wander around the park and revel in the unique charm of the red, rose and white sandstone formations.

Bask in the beauty of the Colorado State Canyon Park and the magnificent views from the hikes surronding the Helen Hunt Falls.

At the Olympic Center we will watch a continous video on multiple walls in a large media center room that exhibits footage of past American Olympic sports heroes.

The Colorado Springs Olympic Center showcases many of the advanced training systems that the US athletes go through to become some of the world's best. After visiting the Colorado Olympic Center we will head back to Denver. It is possible at times to see some of the Olympic athletes run through their training regime.
