Colorado Springs is a beautiful world-class city that has historically inspired artists and poets from around the world. Most notably known as "America's Mountain", Pikes Peak precipitated the creation of the song "America the Beautiful" written by Katharine Lee Bates in 1893 as she stood on the summit of Pikes Peak.
Nestled in the foothills beneath Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs is a thriving city with a downtown business district of modern high-rise buildings and wide side streets all splashed against the beautiful backdrop of the Rocky Mountains.
With a wealth of sprawling ranches, abandoned mines and unique rock formations amongst alpine splendor, locations are easy to come by in an area of rich history and immense beauty.
