Activities & tips in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region
Fall fun in Colorado Springs
Congratulations! You have selected one of the grandest seasons to visit the Pikes Peak Region. Welcome to perfect sunny days, cooler nights, and a wash of color around every corner that will absolutely delight. Our aspen trees tend to get all of the press when it comes to their exceptional color changing skills, but the scrub oak, mountain mahogany, heck, even the grasses change color in September and October. Our typically mild, yet often unpredictable weather seems to take a hiatus this time of year — holding steady those bright blue skies, adding only a puffy cloud here and there for effect.
We like to think of ourselves as your personal travel agent: minus the extra cost or funny headsets. Choose from one of our pre-built itineraries for guaranteed fun.
