Park either above or below the Rock, and enjoy a scenic hike through easy trails for a couple hours. Friendly hikers, safe, and easy.

This cute smallish distillery is a great addition to the Monument area, and a terrific place to stop for anyone driving the I-25 corridor between Cheyenne, WY and Santa Fe, NM.
The distiller is an Army vet and he makes batches of easy drinking flavorful moonshine. Taste it in their cute tasting room, take a tour, and buy some to take home! I especially liked the margarita shine, and the sweet ice tea shine.

We visited here today to do some shopping. Very quaint and super friendly. They have a variety of unique gifts that are made here and also in the USA. They are willing to hold classes and will provide snacks. Beautiful boxer greets you while you are there

Monument Ice Rinks- your community twin rinks center for hockey, figure skating, and birthday parties. Providing programs for ages 3 to adult. Serving the El Paso and Douglas Counties regions, including Colorado Springs, Monument, Castle Rock, Parker and South Denver.
This is a great place for practicing hockey, playing in leagues, or just ice skating. Many Saturdays, my son and his friends pick up their gear and head over for "Sticks and Pucks" where they can just hit the puck around, no pressure. My husband has played in several leagues, and when he feels like it, heads over to pick up a game. Good fun in Monument!

Visitors can tour this modern sprawling campus that includes the Academy, Falcon Stadium, a chapel and Arnold Hall, a museum honoring Air Force personnel.
Amazing that this is a school. Seeing the chapel took our breath away even from the observation points before arriving at the main campus. Yes we had to show our driver's license but this is clearly a military facility and it did not bother me. The young man was very respectful. After visiting the chapel and all of the different worship venues we were delighted to observe a sample of military training as a group of paratroopers exited a plane overhead and landed on a designated spot in the field between the body of gathered cadets in attendance in formation. Filled us with pride in our nation and the young people who are being trained to serve.

This 18-hole championship golf course plays through gently rolling meadows, ranging from 5,100 to 6,900 yards ensuring a challenging round for beginner and pro golfers alike.
Fun and challenging course in good shape for a good price. BUT...it will take you 6 hours to complete. Absolutely no marshals and people could care less about pace of play. Course booked a junior golf tourney over existing tee times and still couldn't finish in time for later tee times. We didn't tee off until 30 min late. Wouldn't play here again unless I wanted to blow my entire day.

A small local type park. It was clean, and street parking around it. No benches or playground, but just a green space. And a pokemon tower!

You would not know when you enter it (somewhat hard to see the two entrances/exits), that there is so much to see and do in it. The small lake to walk around is great, as are the various open green areas for hiking, throwing a Frisbee, having family events, bicycling, and general decompressing.
Well worth going to and through it!

The museum features artifacts and research involving the region's early mining and industrial activities.
This is a DIY museum, created and run by volunteers who are fascinated by the local mining history, so don't expect any slick new displays. However, the museum has a great collection of authentic equipment and artifacts with very informative signs and insights. We got a full appreciation of the rigors and dangers of mining in Colorado, as well as all of the big machines that made it possible. Kids can also pan for gold and other minerals. After you see the exhibits in the main building, be sure to take some time to explore outside, including the other building.
