About Colorado Springs
From sky-high mountaintops to tree-lined state parks to friendly neighborhoods, Colorado Springs welcomes visitors with a wide range of interests. Reserve your choice of Colorado Springs vacation rentals, and live like a local for a night, a weekend, or an extended stay.
Colorado Springs enjoys four stunning seasons, with warm summers, cold winters, and nearly 40 inches of snow on average. Visit during the summer months for temperatures in the low 80s and moderate rainfall, or plan your trip during the fall for cooler temperatures in the 60s and little chance of rain. If you have your sights set on skiing or other cold weather adventures, keep in mind that winter temperatures typically dip down to the 20s and 30s, and March tends to be the snowiest month.
Flying into Colorado Springs from nearly anywhere around the country is easy, thanks to the conveniently located Colorado Springs Airport on the eastern edge of the city. Visitors can get around town via the Mountain Metropolitan Transit bus system or on bike, but driving tends to be the easiest way to get between Colorado Springs cabins and the area’s top attractions.
There are Colorado Springs vacation rentals in several different parts of the city, allowing you to find a home near the activities that interest you most. Some of the most popular rentals are in the Pikes Peak area or near the Garden of the Gods. You may want to look in the Broadmoor area if you are interested in playing a round of golf at the neighborhood’s club, or consider Monument to be close to the national forest. Manitou Springs, Woodland Park, Trailridge and Northgate are also all good options for comfortable Colorado Springs homes.
Things to Do
As you plan your trip, take into account the higher elevations in Colorado. The air may be thinner than you are used to, and you may need to allow yourself some time to acclimate to it. Take it easy the first day or two and watch for dizziness and excessive tiredness. After that, you’ll be ready for days spent exploring the great outdoors.
Start with a visit to the Garden of the Gods, a legendary group of red rock formations where visitors can hike, bike, climb, and even take Jeep tours. Since the Garden of the Gods is just a few miles north of Colorado Springs and doesn’t charge an admission fee, this is an easy and memorable way to spend your day.
Don’t miss your chance to get to the top of Pikes Peak, which you can reach on foot, by car, or via scenic railway. Driving the Pikes Peak Highway is one of the most popular ways to see the summit, but keep in mind that while the drive boasts incredible views, it’s relatively challenging to maneuver and requires an entrance fee. For a more relaxing yet equally scenic trip, opt for a ride on the Pikes Peak Cog Railway.
Spend an entire day at Cave of the Winds where you can enjoy two different cave tours, a zip line ride, and a high adventure ropes course. If you don’t spend the entire day there, visit the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo or enjoy river rafting with American Adventure Expeditions.
Whether you’re hungry for a local diner meal, a juicy burger, or flavorful Mexican food, you’ll find it all in Colorado Springs. Start your day with a pancake flight or eggs benedict at Over Easy, and fuel up with onion- or bacon-topped burgers at the Green Line Grill. For some of the best carnitas tacos, pork tortas, and coconut or chocolate flan in the city, you can’t go wrong with Tlaquepaque.
Colorado Springs has no shortage of annual events, festivals and happenings that attract locals and visitors from around the nation. In February, see some of the coolest ice sculptures at the Cripple Creek Ice Festival, and warm up with seasonal fun and music at the Festival of Lights in December.
Sip and sample bottles from more than two dozen local wineries at June’s Manitou Springs Wine Festival, or go adventuring with 20 different challenges at the Royal Gorge Whitewater Festival. In July, watch the state’s top athletes compete at the Rocky Mountain State games, or build your art collection at August’s Mountain Arts Festival.
For those with an interest in history, the Territory Days Festival focuses on bringing the days of the Old West back to life and the Colorado Medieval Festival in nearby Larkspur allows visitors to experience medieval times.
From mountains to trails to hearty meals with friends, there’s no shortage of things to do in Colorado Springs. With numerous spacious Colorado Springs vacation rentals to choose from, it couldn’t be easier to settle in and enjoy your stay in this Colorado city.
