Not all of us can be athletic aficionados like all of those athletic people out there, but we do want to have some fun just like everyone else out there. So I am going to list off top 5 things to do in Colorado that is not skiing. Note that this is an opinion only I do not want people getting mad at me.
- Garden of the Gods – The Garden of the Gods is full of things to do from Horseback riding to climbing walls and trails to hike. They have trails that are from easy to moderately hard. The easy trails are Perkins Central Garden Trail and Siamese Twins Trail. The moderate trails are Ridge trail, Chambers/Bretag/Palmer Trail and Scotsman/Buckskin Charlie Trail.
- Manitou Springs – Being known for their picturesque landscapes and their healing hot springs. They also have different attractions that you can visit; Garden of the Gods park, the Cog Railway, Cave of the Winds , Manitou Cliff Dwellings, and the breath-taking Seven Falls. The cave of the Winds is so much fun to go to and you can even take home some rocks for a souvenir.

The Zoo also has exciting attractions you won’t want to miss, Mountaineer Sky Ride. With its oversized garden and petting zoo, kids will love My Big Backyard. And no trip to the Pikes Peak Region is complete without a visit to the Will Rodger Shrine of the Sun
