Welcome to the scenic mountain
community of Cascade, nestled among the Pikes Peak foothills and
just minutes from Colorado Springs. Named for nearby waterfalls,
Cascade beckons to visitors as the front door to Pikes Peak, the
country's most visited mountain.
Two activities in Cascade are
perfect for families: Santa's Workshop and Myers' Gourmet Popcorn
Factory. The Workshop lets children experience the pleasures of
Christmas year round. The popcorn factory, in operation since
1925, serves buckets of popcorn in flavors including Kettle Korn,
Mega Chocolate, Pizza, and even Chicken Soup.
Visitors to the Pikes Peak region
will enjoy a variety of outdoor activities during their Colorado
vacation such as hiking, biking or rock climbing in Garden of the
Gods, Pike National Forest, Mueller State Park or Florissant
Fossil Beds National Monument. Outdoor enthusiasts will also enjoy
whitewater rafting through the Royal Gorge on the Arkansas River
in nearby Canon City, Colorado.
