This week’s Travel Today with Peter Greenberg comes from The Broadmoor in Colorado Springs, Colorado, one of the great grande dame icons. The official opening of the Broadmoor was in 1918, a building constructed on the same land where the original Broadmoor Casino stood before burning to the ground. Once a hotel that only allowed “old school money tabs” or cash as forms of payment, the Broadmoor’s concession to the 21st century is that they now accept credit cards.
Richard Sauers, Executive Director of the Western Museum of Mining & Industry, joins us to discuss this functional museum and why people travel from around the world to see the working—and fascinating—mining equipment. Then, Harris Kalofonos of the International Olympic Committee details how Colorado Springs became an Olympic Sister City and what that really means. All this and more from The Broadmoor.
