The Pioneer Museum is a wonderful place. There are artifacts there and the volunteers teach you interesting things like about tuberculosis. The museum was the original court house for Colorado Springs. You can even sit in the original courtroom! Be careful not to lean over the security gate, because you will set the alarm off! Other exhibits you can see are about Native Americans, Helen Hunt Jackson, General Palmer, and famous people from Colorado Springs. This year they will be updating the exhibits, so make sure you come back! For more information,click here to go to the Pioneer Museum website
Garden of the Gods
Garden of the Gods can be very hot, and you can climb some of the rocks and go hiking, so make sure to bring water and sunscreen. What makes Garden of the Gods so unusual is that the rocks are red, and naturall shaped like different things. If you look closely, you can see one of the shapes called The Kissing Camels. You can horseback ride through the park, or visit the gift shop for some ice cream! Make sure to pack other snacks, or a picnic, so you won't be hungry!
