El Paso County Information

Behind Denver County, El Paso County in central Colorado is the state's second most populated county. As one of Colorado's original counties, the area is rich in history, and with its location in the Front Range of the Rocky Mountains, natural beauty abounds here as well. Colorado Springs is the county seat, and its population of nearly half a million people makes it one of the state's biggest cities. Here you will find an area that blends modern urbanization with its colorful Western past and incredible scenery.

El Paso County began as part of Colorado's famous gold rush. Miners flocked to the area after gold was discovered in 1858, and the area has thrived ever since. Colorado Springs bustles with activity, and like other large metropolitan areas, you will find abundant shops, restaurants, and more. The city offers residents and visitors sites such as the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Peterson Air and Space Museum, among others. Tourism is a big part of the area's economy, and people from all over the world come to enjoy the city's cultural and natural attractions. Perhaps the most famous of these natural wonders is Pikes Peak, whose summit can be reached by car or on foot. There is also the Cave of the Winds and the Garden of the Gods Park, both of which offer stunning beauty and fascinating information about how they were formed. Colorado itself is known for its outdoorsy and active atmosphere, and the numerous hiking trails, parks, and forests in El Paso County fit in perfectly with this.
