This is a new restaurant that just opened early in 2017. If you like mexican food you need to give it a try. Prices are very reasonable and servings are large! We always have leftovers to bring home. Shawn highly recommends their seafood soup. They are open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

The Applebee's at the Gardens on Havana has only been open for about a year. We love to eat at the bar, interact with the bartenders and watch games on the big screen TV's. They have some healthy options on the menu that we like including the Steak and Grains with mushrooms.

This is an hour and a half away by car but well worth the trip. Views along the way and at the top are absolutely stunning on a clear day. It is not open at all times during the year, so you can check availability on their web site. The train trip to the top of Pikes Peak takes about an hour fifteen minutes each way and you get to spend a half hour at the top. There is a gift shop for souvenirs and a cafe to grab a bite. Please either bring water with you or purchase some at the shop in the depot. Due to the high altitude you may feel nauseated or lightheaded if you are not hydrated.
