ITINERARY

All aboard for a pleasure-filled, unforgettable day! As the tour leaves Denver heading south on Interstate 25, see examples of 21st century business park architecture. Watch for the town of Castle Rock to the east pinpointed by the huge rock from which it gets its name. Then, enjoy the scenic drive through the United States Air Force Academy and the celebrated Cadet Chapel with impressive mountain views, well-manicured athletic fields, and fine architecture.

Next, drive through beautiful Colorado Springs, the state’s second-largest city. Tour the fantastic Garden of the Gods with its magnificent red sandstone rock formations, followed by lunch at the Trading Post (included). Tour climaxes with the ascent of Pikes Peak, located at 14,110 feet above sea level. Pass above the tree line, then up to the summit for gorgeous panoramic views of the mountains.
