Of course you will be able to view the top race qualifying vehicles and maybe grab an autograph or two.   

While you're in the mood for fast don't miss the Pikes Peak Airstrip Attack at the Colorado Springs Airport on June 27th and June 28th.  This event will feature the fastest street cars in the nation in a half-mile side-by-side roll race and trap speed competition.  You won’t want to miss it!

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

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.
