Activities & tips in Colorado Springs and the Pikes Peak Region
Golden days of summer in Colorado Springs
Summer is the real reason we love Colorado. It’s the magic time, when the weather is beautiful, the state really shows off it’s Colorful Colorado moniker, and the days are long enough to let you soak it all in. Summer in Colorado Springs means that from every hilltop you can look over a city awash in green. The birds are so prevalent you will find yourself daydreaming to their song. And although the days can get warm, there’s so little humidity, the warmth can literally feel like it’s recharging your soul. I know. It sounds a little hokey, but try it for yourself and tell me I’m wrong.
Summer is also the time when ALL of our attractions are fully open and the delight of the season is palpable in the air. We have 24 awesome attractions to keep you hopping all day long, but do yourself a favor, find a patio, a porch, a deck, some outdoor living space to sit outside and enjoy the evening. You may need a jacket, it cools off quickly as the sun goes down, but take a minute and experience that moment in Colorado. It’s almost like the earth takes a deep breath and settles in for the night. If you need to recharge, you’ve come to the right place. I hope you love it as much as I do. Welcome to summer in Colorado.
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.
