A bit of drive from Colorado Springs, about an hour and half it is a place worth seeing. Jim Bishop built the entire castle by hand. Pack a picnic and climb the iconic towers up to the dragon's head. Free to the public.

This is a hand made castle you can climb all over. It's free with a suggested donation of $5 per person in the donation box. Jim Bishop has spent his entire life building the castle in the mountains and continues to work on it daily! A must see!
