As a realtor in Colorado Springs newcomers often ask me about attractions that are unique to the area. One of my favorite sites is the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. This is America’s only mountain zoo. It was named the 6th best zoo in the nation by TripAdvisor.
Visitors to this zoo have the chance to be active participants with hands -on -experiences like feeding the animals. Recently I was able to visit the zoo with my daughter and grandson and see his reaction to feeding the giraffes, the Australian parakeets and the wallabies.
The Cheyenne Mountain Zoo offers a robust array of unique animals who call the zoo home and the ability to meet many of them face-to-face. I highly recommend as this as one of your first stops in exploring Colorado Springs.
