More than 4,000 artifacts. A 27-acre campus and 5,000-volume research library. These numbers just begin to describe the massive collection gathered at Western Museum of Mining and Industry. The institution's staff delve into history as miner's burrow into the ground, finding and preserving the stories and items that fueled the industrial revolution. The standing collection focuses largely on artifacts; visitors can see operating steam engines or pan for gold.
The venue also regularly hosts special presentations in its multipurpose center, featuring events in the past such as The Gold King's Legacy, an exploration of Winfield Scott Stratton's Cripple Creek mining operation. Some events also include the Pikes Peak Gem and Mineral Show, the Reynolds Ranch Harvest Festival, and Haunted Mines. Discussions on topics revolving around the Industrial Revolution and mining are led by appointed speakers to educate visitors.
Garden of The Gods is a national natural landmark located in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The visitor center and park are open only at specific times of the year, so please check their website before making travel plans. The park offers spectacular views of sandstone rock formations and has an excellent visitor’s center that houses a café, souvenir shop, and educational materials. The area is one of the most photographed in the world, with the snow-capped Pikes Peak in the background. The park seeks to educate visitors about the development of the many magnificent rock formations in the area. Group tours are available, along with field trips for students of all ages. Garden of the Gods Park has developed a movie called, “How Did Those Red Rocks Get There?” that has become very popular. The 14-minute film is shown on a 23 foot screen and gives the geological history of the formation of red rocks and the Garden of the Gods park.
At Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, you might come face to face with a giraffe, or a moose. All you have to do is ask. The zoo offers firsthand encounters with 14 species, although they're more playdates than encounters—participants often bust out animal-friendly toys, or feed treats to their chosen creature.
Of course, guests can always encounter animals the traditional way. On visits to the zoo's enclosures, everyone watches reptiles, monkeys, birds, and amphibians go about their daily business, whether that means swinging from branches, pecking at bugs, or scanning grocery ads for good deals on fur wash. For fuller context, guests can attend zookeeper talks, watch animal feeding shows, or attend a varied slate of educational programming for kids as young as 18 months.
Students gather amid the golden glow cast onto Marmalade at Smokebrush’s exposed brick walls by rectangular floor lamps, awaiting instruction from the studio’s capable staff under the decorative flock of origami whooping cranes swooping overhead. Instructors pull from previous experience as dancers, movement therapists, and artists as they guide students in fitness sessions, including Latin-inspired Zumba, a dance-fueled workout that enables students to torch calories while learning dance-floor-ready skills.
The studio’s yoga classes range from spinal-alignment-focused Iyengar yoga to dubstep yoga, which swaps normally serene background noise with thumping electronic beats. Aside from its yoga focus, Smokebrush’s expansive space also plays host to artwork exhibitions, environmentally focused workshops, and speed dating for ex-claustrophobics.
Skate City's rinks are havens for roller-skaters tired of rough asphalt and bumpy sidewalks. Within each, a smooth white plane stretches out in front of every pair of wheels, beckoning and tempting maximum speeds. And during open-skate sessions, these rinks become mini metropolises, stirring with skaters of all ages rolling to upbeat music. Each Skate City has its own lineup of special offerings, too: at some, Sunday nights mean free slices of pizza, whereas at others, Friday nights are reserved for teenagers tired of just sitting around, getting taller. When they aren't buzzing with public skating sessions, skating instruction, and hockey games, Skate City locations also transform into the ideal spots for birthday parties.
