The Pikes Peak Region

Beyond Colorado Springs

Colorado Springs is the second biggest city in Colorado and it flourishes across the foothills and plains near Pikes Peak. It’s the hub, the airport destination, the big dot on the map you use to plan your vacation, but Colorado Springs proper is just a piece of the puzzle. If you’re planning to come to Colorado Springs, you’re really planning to visit the Pikes Peak Region and the moment you lay eyes on that big beautiful mountain, you’ll see exactly why we call it that and why it connects all the area communities.

PS: we’re online as much as we can be Monday – Friday if you still have questions. That’s literally the reason we come to work everyday.  We got you!

The lay of the land

The Pikes Peak Region comprises Colorado Springs, Manitou Springs, Old Colorado City, Canon City, Cripple Creek and a number of amazing little towns in between. Navigating all that awesomeness between your arrival and departure dates can be a little tricky. We hope this helps!
