After attending the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, we drove up to the shrine and not only was the ride amazing with beautiful views but upon reaching the top we were amazed at the beauty of the shrine. All its majestic architecture and peaceful serene feeling that it projected that day. The chapel is a must see.

This is a really beautiful memorial with absolutely incredible views of the Colorado Springs area! It feels really peaceful when walking through the grounds with lots of little flowers and well kept sitting areas. It is a shame that the only way to visit is by paying for zoo admission. We would gladly bring visitors to the area to visit... 更多
A fabulous view of the Broadmoor Resort, Colorado Springs and the surrounding mountains. The tower climb is a series of steep stairs, and each landing has an adjoining room with photos and history about Will Rogers.
This little treasure is above the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and is a good way to end your day. You actually drive slowly through the zoo to reach this and get amazing views over the plains. We chose this with young children as an alternative to making the queasy trek up Pikes Peak.

Access to the Shrine of the Sun is included included in your Cheyenne Mountain Zoo fees and well worth the 10-15 minutes it takes you drive up to it. Stunning views of Colorado Springs and the drive up the twisting turning road was fun for the kids. One of my favorite features visiting Colorado (I'm east coast based), is how... 更多

He died in a plane crash in Alaska--but not before he made friends with some of the locals here in Colorado Springs. His friend Spencer Penrose, one of the city's founders, memorialized... 更多
Interesting place, the view is perfect. It is a little odd that it a memorial built for a man that was not from CO and that is not burried there but hey ! still a cool place !
The Will Rogers Shrine is included in your admission to the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Picturesque views from the top! Several picnic tables at the top to enjoy a picnic lunch. Great tribute to a great man!
