Pikes Peak, Manitou Springs, CO
Pikes Peak is America's Mountain. It is the most visited mountain in North American, and second in the world after Mt. Fuji. You have the choice of driving the winding path up to the top or you can take the Pike's Peak Railway Cog to the summit. While the round trip is only 3 hours, it is truly a memorable experience. To top it all off, the summit has a station facility that sells souvenirs, beverages, and food. However, don't be fooled. The only thing you need to buy are the world famous donuts or maybe some time at the oxygen bar if you're feeling altitude sickness!
