About Colorado: Pikes Peak Region

Colorado Springs photo

The name was given to the gold mining region during the Pikes Peak Gold Rush of 1858-1861. Pikes Peak, also known as "America's Mountain," remains one of the most popular attractions in the region, as the most-visited mountain in North America and second-most-visited in the world. In addition to the U.S. Olympic Committee and Training Center, the community hosts many sports-related national governing bodies, including the U.S. Tennis Association, U.S. Figure Skating and 25 other organizations. Colorado Springs also has a long, proud military tradition - the U.S. Air Force Academy, Peterson Air Force Base, Schriever Air Force Base, and Fort Carson all are located nearby. With our military members, our athletes and our community, Colorado Springs ranks as one of the "Fittest Cities" in the nation.
