Located at the foot of Pikes Peak, you’ll find the city of Colorado Springs, the state’s 2nd most populous city behind Denver. So what makes this part of the state so attractive to residents and tourists alike? Let’s find out!
Colorado Springs is known for its many one-of-a-kind attractions, the most iconic being the city’s Garden of the Gods Park, a National Natural Landmark. Featuring 300 million years worth of geological history and incredible towering red sandstone rock formations, it is no wonder it is ranked top of the list of best parks to visit in the US. In Colorado DLC you will have to find a hidden road that will take you there. We don’t want to spoil your exploration with detailed screenshots of this place as we’d rather leave it for you to enjoy it with your own eyes first. Plus, the city itself has a lot of beauty to show too! The city is also home to the United States Air Force Academy, which enrols thousands of cadets each year. You may able to spot some aviation history around the city, including the famous Airplane Restaurant where you can wine and dine inside a fully-intact USAF Aircraft tanker! But not every visitor to Colorado Springs is arriving for leisure, as drivers in our upcoming Colorado DLC for American Truck Simulator will find out. The city features many different industries large and small which support the local economy. From construction to food, truckers will find no shortage of jobs delivering to this scenic area.
But don’t take our word for it, see it for yourself! As a bonus for today’s blog, we are excited to share with you some exclusive gameplay footage from another part of Colorado with a special surprise for our long-time fans along the way.
