With over 300 days of sunshine per year in the Sundown neighborhood, the majestic Pikes Peak, inspiration for the words to "America the Beautiful," looms to the south, so close you imagine reaching out to touch it. Surrounded with spectacular scenery, plentiful recreation in parks and open space preserves, and attractions such as the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Garden of the Gods, life in Sundown proves to be good. The neighborhood bloomed just southwest of downtown Colorado Springs following the city's establishment in 1871. The neighborhood's mean age is 39, with a large population of college-educated, Colorado natives.

Tex-Mex tastebuds remain a very popular choice in the region with many superb representations. For a five-star-reviewed experience, visit Rudy's Little Hideaway Restaurant on 8th Street for a pork carnita, green chili-smothered breakfast burrito, or stick with a tasty stack of all-American pancakes surrounded by bacon and eggs.

Enjoy nightly specials, such as $2 Tuesdays and quarter beers on Wednesday.

History

In 1871, Colorado Springs began as a concept of urban culture in the wild west promoted by General William Jackson Palmer. Certain amenities were added to attract more elite investors and residents, such as an opera house in 1881 and Colorado College, a private liberal arts institution. Palmer offered free land to build churches and created a network of parks to beautify the area. Sundown grew naturally as the city pushed westward. Money gleaned from the Cripple Creek gold rush in 1891 helped erect lavish landmarks, such as the Broadmoor Hotel, and the trolley system throughout the town.

Built in 1936, the Fine Arts Center was deemed the best museum and art school west of the Mississippi. The modern center features a theater for the deaf, art work displays from artists such as Georgia O'Keefe and theatrical products, such as Mary Poppins.
