Episode 157 | Pikes Peak, Garden of the Gods & Colorado Springs

This week, we recount our journey to Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs, where we stayed at the Garden of the Gods RV Resort and visited its namesake park, as well as Pikes Peak. Plus, we share a wild new marketing campaign from Hotels.com that’s aimed at RV buyer’s remorse, and so much more.

We continue our tour of Colorado with a week long adventure in the Colorado Springs and Manitou Springs area!

Highlights:

Pikes Peak: we took the drive, we did not hike the hike.

Garden of the Gods: A quick, hot and crowded exploration of the park left us wanting more.

We stayed in the heart of it all at Garden of the Gods RV Resort. If you’re looking to be able to walk right out your campground and stroll Manitou Springs, this is your campground. Located just minutes from Garden of the Gods, we found this campground to be a great home base for urban exploration. Two pools, a food truck, laundry, arcade, and a playground on-site, the sites are very close together and you definitely pay for the location and amenities, but that is pretty common for urban campgrounds near popular spots.

Grab yourself some Colorado brews at the Colorado Mountain Brewery, a short drive from the campground and featuring one of the best summer brews we’ve ever had – Ginger Wheat Beer. The food is excellent as well and the patio is pet friendly and perfect for kids.

We wrap up the show with a new fresh tank/black tank segment, plus a new brain teaser. You can join in the answering fun and email editor@rvmiles.com if you think you know the answer!

That’s it for this week, keep loggin’ those RV Miles and we’ll see you on the next episode.
