This gallery has a really neat miniature town inside it (Magic Town)... cost is $3 or so per person, and it's fun to look through. You'll see all kinds of interesting surprises, mirror tricks, etc.
3. Flying W Ranch
This attraction has a western style town that we did not go through because it's not really wheelchair friendly (well, if you're the one pushing the wheelchair, that is. If you have a powered one, you might be able to do it.) But the food is good and the show is fun... Gramma talked about it for a long time afterwards... I think that was her favorite part of the trip.
A must-see for anyone who visits the Springs... there is a nice sidewalk trail that is wheel chair accessible, though on the way back to the parking lot it's uphill (didn't notice that there was a grade until on the way back and all of a sudden pushing got alot harder!) The rock formations are awesome and if it's a nice day, just drinking in the sun and sky will add that much more to it. Don't forget to go to the visitor's center first and see the little movie about how the red rocks came to be, and get a map of the park so you can know what the names of the different rocks are. There's also a really nice gift shop in the visitor's center. There are wheelchair accessible picnic areas, too. We had a nice lunch.
Your drive into the park starts at Starsmoor Discovery Center (check it out while you're there) and then winds back into the park amid gorgeous red rock walls and trees. There are various places along the way you can stop to have a picnic, you'll be able to see them from the road if you pay attention. Stop at Helen Hunt Falls and take in the scenery. The little shop at the falls is neat if it's open...
There is a gravel walking path around the lake, but I would not try to push a wheel chair around it. Instead, grab a picnic table and watch the fishermen... this is one of the most beautiful places in town...
Check this link for listings of events of all kinds going on in the current week. My favorites are the craft fairs, you will find authentic Made-in-Colorado gifts like poderosa pine wood bowls, pottery, etc.
