Manitou Springs and Old Colorado City both offer excellent shopping, but downtown Colorado Springs offers the most variety. Downtown is very family friendly, where children can run through the Uncle Wilbur Fountain. (Giggling is mandatory.) A few blocks from the fountain is the famous Pioneer Museum which has spectacular views of Pikes Peak.

Colorado Springs epitomizes America the Beautiful. So next time you want a vacation with a bit of western flair, decide its "Pikes Peak or Bust."
