The Colorado Springs City Tour is all set to take place today at the Mining Exchange Hotel located at 8 S. Nevada Avenue in Colorado Springs, Colorado. The guided tour is suitable for all age groups.

Running from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm, guests who attend this tour will have an introduction to the founding fathers of the city and there will be plenty packed into the two hour session. They will visit sites frequented by General William Jackson Palmer and will be taught about Winfield Scott Stratton – a man who found gold on July 4, 1891, in Cripple Creek. They will be treated to an introduction to to C.O.D. gold mine owner Spencer Penrose – a philanthropist and extremely flamboyant business owner. As an additional bonus, the guests will learn about the author of ‘America the Beautiful’ , Katherine Lee Bates, while also being provided with the opportunity to explore the legacies of other famous individuals, adventures, and historic tales from around this community. This promises to be a great family event, especially when it comes to learning and experiencing what life was like for people who lived in the region before us.
