Urban Egg

Breakfast Spots

The main criterion for choosing this place for our breakfast was its convenient location. A simple and nourishing breakfast is the key to a productive day, and we have a lot of plans for today! By the way, there are very large portions here, so you can eat even one dish.

Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum

We decided to visit the museum after reading the reviews of travelers and were very pleased. An interesting collection, the building itself is also very beautiful, the collection of the museum is dedicated to the history of the city and the personalities who played an important role in it. Entrance to the museum is free of charge, there is an opportunity to donate money for the further development of the museum. The museum is open from Tuesday to Saturday.

Helen Hunt Falls

Colorful landscapes will definitely stay in our memory for a long time! Mountain streams flowing down the cliffs, plenty of trees and shrubs... Crazy views. It's very easy to climb to the top of the waterfall, up the stairs. It won't take more than 15 minutes to get up. At sunset, the view becomes even more magical! The road to the waterfall is very well maintained, if you are tired, there are benches, you can sit down and relax.

The Broadmoor Seven Falls

We continue to explore new territories and admire the waterfalls! The climb is a long staircase along the mountain, but for those who lead an active lifestyle, it will not seem difficult.

Amy's Donuts

Donut Shops

Delicious donuts! The pastry shop has a very large selection of doughnuts for every taste and color. Great snack after a long walk! If you don't want to stay there, you can just take the food with you.

Soda Springs Park


We decided to take a box of doughnuts with us and go to the park. It's very nice, quiet and peaceful, just to get some rest, but still be outdoors.

Miramont Castle

History Museums

Miramonte Castle is a beautiful eclectic building built at the end of the nineteenth century. Inside there are antique furniture and household items that have been preserved in perfect condition to this day. The standard excursion is quite short, takes about forty minutes, but very interesting and informative. We arrived at the museum an hour before closing and had time to look at all the halls.

Paravicini's Italian Bistro

Italian Restaurants

As you know, all Italians are gourmets and their cuisine is very diverse and rich. The variety of dishes on the menu impressed us. Very much liked the vegetable soup Ministrone, we advise you to try it! In addition, I would like to point out that the main course is accompanied by very tasty bread. In general, the atmosphere at the restaurant is modest, but very cozy, not crowded. And, of course, there are vegetarian dishes on the menu, so there's food for everyone.

Econo Lodge Downtown Colorado Springs

Despite the fact that the day was very busy, our acquaintance with the nature of Colorado is only beginning, because tomorrow we will go to conquer the mountain peaks again.
