It's easiest to explore this region in a private car because the attractions are spread out. If you're staying in the heart of town and don't intend to head out to Pikes Peak, the Air Force Academy or other attractions farther away, you could use the Mountain Metropolitan Transit bus system or grab a taxi. Gray Line offers tours of the Colorado Springs area, including Pikes Peak and Manitou Springs.
