Fountain Colorado Homes For Sale

Fountain Colorado Living

Recently named America’s Millennium City, Fountain is, according to the U.S. Census Bureau, the city most representative of America’s overall composition based on race, income and other factors. Katharine Lee Bates wrote “America the Beautiful” after viewing this area from the top of Pikes Peak, and while visitors aren’t likely to see amber waves here, spacious skies and purple mountains abound.

Once the site of a seasonal encampment for Ute, Arapaho and Cheyenne, French explorers named Fountain for a nearby creek. Today the downtown area contains cafes, an old-time bakery and a gift shop. A new city hall plaza features the community’s famous fountains, and Metcalfe Park has shady picnic spots and a challenging skateboard park. Golfers will enjoy excellent views of the Rocky Mountains during a round at the nearby Appletree Golf Course. Fountain’s residents head to nearby Colorado Springs for other cultural and recreational activities. Top attractions there include the Pikes Peak International RacewayGarden of the Gods Visitor and Nature Center and the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Rusty Wallace Racing Experience

The Rusty Wallace Racing Experience:

2013 NASCAR Hall of Fame inductee Rusty Wallace allows amateurs to feel first-hand how a real race car rumbles as its tires scorch a professional speedway. Participants can either ride shotgun with an experienced driver or hop behind the wheel to tackle the track themselves. For more of the genuine experience, drivers don the full array of safety gear before climbing or vaulting through the window, including a sleek racing suit, helmet, and HANS neck-protection device.
