The Dalmatian Club of America would like to welcome you to the 2018 National Specialty in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It is Colorado’s 2nd largest city just 80 miles south of Denver and sits at 6035 feet above sea level. We encourage you to come a little early to visit the sites and adjust to the altitude. The city sits at the foot of one of America's most famous landmarks, Pikes Peak, upon whose summit Katharine Lee Bates was inspired to write "America the Beautiful." One of the nation's most fabulous city parks, Garden of the Gods, is nestled in the foothills of Pikes Peak. The stunning red-rock formations draw those with cameras in tow to capture a perfect shot of the rocks framing snow-capped Pikes Peak. There’s over 50 area attractions ranging from the Pioneers museum, Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, Air Force Academy to the Olympic Training Center.

Please visit the City of Colorado Springs website for more information. Click here for helpful tips to avoid altitude sickness. We look forward to seeing you there!
