Nice features to the area are the Bluestem Prairie Open Space and Venetucci Farm.
If “Main Street” makes you think of a quiet and community based, small town, then Fountain is one of those places.

The lush parks and trails top it off as a lovely place to live in El Paso County.
One of the biggest cities South of Colorado Springs (until you reach New Mexico), Pueblo offers much of the same amenities of The Springs. Known as the “Steel City,” its economy was based on the Colorado Fuel and Iron Steel Mill for a long time. It still produces steel, but the city has turned to renewable energy with Vestas Wind Systems, which has constructed one of the largest wind turbine tower manufacturing plants in the world. You can get some culture in the city at The Historic Arkansas Riverwalk, a downtown development with public art and events. It is one of the most affordable cities in Colorado. Visit Lake Pueblo State Park, West of Pueblo, which is popular for boating, fishing and camping.
Southwest of Pueblo and about 45 minutes from Colorado Springs, Cañon City has some amazing things to see and do. You might even want to stay permanently. The Royal Gorge is just west of the city and you should take a magnificent rail journey aboard the Royal Gorge Route Railroad. Visit the award winning Winery at Holy Cross Abbey or the unique Museum of Colorado Prisons. White water rafting and rock climbing adventures await on the East flowing Arkansas River. The plentiful hiking paths, public parks, fossil discoveries and sightseeing opportunities make it perfect. We love it enough to have a Berkshire Hathaway HS location in nearby Florence, CO!
