Experience the Thrill of White Water Rafting near Colorado Springs this Summer!

American Adventure Expeditions

Looking for some fun and excitement in the great outdoors this summer? American Adventure Expeditions may be just what you are looking for. 

The huge winter snowfalls through the mountains this winter are now melting.  In turn, this melting makes the white water rafting experience through the Colorado Rockies bigger than normal and therefore the season will last longer than usual.  White water rafting near Colorado Springs on the Arkansas River, known to the locals as the Ark, should be very exciting and action packed this summer! 

If you’re planning on being in the Colorado Springs area, this is a great way to spend a day.  Secure your river trip early to make sure you don’t miss out!  American Adventure Expeditions has several different rafting options to choose from: 

On River Adventures
        • Family Friendly Rafting American Adventure Expeditions map

Visit the Manitou Cliff Dwellings near Colorado Springs and Step Back in Time

Manitou Cliff Dwellings The Anasazi Indian culture roamed the Four Corners of Colorado from 1200 B.C. to A.D. 1300 where they left behind architectural remnants.  To this day scientists do not know what happened and why this cultural group disappeared and left their cliff dwellings. 

Some of these remnants, over 700 years old, were taken from a collapsed Anasazi site near Cortez and were relocated by train to their present site in Manitou Springs during the early 1900’s.  The stones, reassembled under a red sandstone overhang to protect them, took their present form to become a museum, a preserve and a tourist attraction which opened to the public in 1907.   

Families can explore inside each dwelling during a self-guided tour and are encouraged to roam free and touch the sandstone. On-site there is also a three-story Pueblo-style building that was built in the style of the Anasazi descendants. The original rooms were built in 1904 and served as housing to a family of local Native American Indians until 1984.  This Pueblo has been expanded and now houses the museum and gift shop.  Other native homes on–site includes a modern day pueblo and a teepee.

Open seven days a week, weather permitting, the Manitou Cliff Dwellings near Colorado Springs makes a great family outing mixing history, culture and education.  Plan your Rocky Mountain getaway today to visit our unique array of family attractions. 

Cheyenne Mountain Resort located less than ten miles from the Manitou Cliff Dwellings is the family oriented place to stay in the Rocky Mountains.  View our website for more things to do in the area and our packages available to help you save on your stay with us.

Reservations at Cheyenne Mountain Resort may be made online or by calling 800.588.0250.
