Your guide to Colorado Springs

All About Colorado Springs

Set in the high desert at the eastern edges of the Rocky Mountains, Colorado Springs has welcomed a steady stream of visitors since the railroad arrived in the 1870s. Once you see the big skies and the rugged landscapes, you’ll understand the allure. In fact, the sight of Pikes Peak — towering more than 14,000 feet on the horizon — is so impressive, it inspired the patriotic anthem “America the Beautiful.” Today, Colorado Springs is the second-largest city in the state and one of the fastest-growing cities in the nation, though neighborhoods like Old Colorado City retain the quiet vibes of a frontier town. As the headquarters and training center for the U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Committee, the locals are quite an athletic bunch, too. You’ll want to pack a sturdy pair of boots to explore the many trails, forests, and natural areas throughout the region.

The best time to stay in a vacation rental in Colorado Springs

The sun shines for 300 days a year in Colorado Springs, making it a four-season destination for outdoor recreation. The warm summer weather, with average highs in the 70s and 80s Fahrenheit, draws the most visitors. If you visit from June to August, come prepared with rain ponchos for the occasional thunderstorms, which usually don’t last too long. Late spring and early fall are pleasant times to visit, when you can look forward to fewer crowds and cooler temperatures, typically in the 50s and 60s. Unlike other popular destinations in the state, Colorado Springs doesn’t get too much snow in the winter months, when the still-chilly temperatures range in the upper 30s and low 40s.

Top things to do in Colorado Springs

Pikes Peak

Positioned in the Pike National Forest, iconic Pikes Peak is one of the state’s famous “fourteeners,” meaning mountains rising more than 14,000 feet above sea level. You could hike the arduous Barr Trail to the top, though driving the Pikes Peak Highway gives you the same views without all the sweat.

Garden of the Gods

A designated National Natural Landmark, the Garden of the Gods ranks among the most unusual city parks in the country. Its red-rock landscape is dotted with narrow sandstone pillars and cathedral-like rock spires. The picturesque formations and more than 21 miles of trails make it the most popular hiking spot in Colorado Springs. Come here for scenic walks, mountain biking, climbing, and horseback riding.

Manitou Springs

The town of Manitou Springs has long drawn visitors for its natural mineral springs, which still bubble today. This old hippie enclave has plenty of galleries and more quirky storefronts to browse in its historic district.
