Real Estate Tips:
Keep in mind that there are investment opportunities past just traditional stocks and bonds. Commodities are an asset class with both risks and rewards but can provide hedges against inflation. Also look at real estate income trusts to invest into the real estate market without being tied to individual pieces of property. One way to diversify your investment portfolio is through real estate. Although real estate might not have the glitz stock market investing, it is usually a solid core investment part of a portfolio. Often, real estate will hold its value when the market takes a downward turn, thereby; buffering any market loss.

    1. Colorado Springs is pretty (it has mountain views) but it does not offer much. The beauty of Colorado Springs is not exceptional for the state. If you only see "The Springs" you truly are missing the best the state has to offer. The video shows Flying W Ranch. It is no longer there. They also show Focus on the Family. This in not a tourist destination. It is the head quarters for political religious activities. The cliff dwelling that is shown was built by white men and not American Indians. If you want to see that go to the Durango/4 corners region and see the real thing. If you want to see Pikes Peak skip the Cog Rail and drive it yourself. The drive has better views, is cheaper and the Cog Rail has only one side that has any views. We prefer the drive up Mount Elbert. Better views, higher mountain and closer to so much more to do. Denver and the I70 west corridor is amazing. If you ski or mountain bike the I70 corridor is what you want. That is where Vail, Aspen, Winter Park, Copper Mountain, Breckinridge and most of the other famous Colorado tourist towns are. If you are passing though Colorado Springs stop by The Garden of the Gods. I have to say if you only have a week in Colorado skip Colorado Springs. Colorado has so much more to offer.
