Consider a Colorado Springs cabin rental for an adventurous trip
Colorado Springs stuns visitors with its ancient natural beauty and sandstone formations. Once known as 'Little London', today the city has wonderfully preserved elements of its distinct past reflected in its museums, art galleries, and sightseeing trails.
Getting into the City
Colorado Springs can be accessed internationally via Denver International Airport, which lies 80 miles to the north. You can get to the city center by taking the Front Range Shuttle, although a taxi might be a quicker way of reaching your Colorado Springs cabin rental. The City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport is small but well-connected for domestic links.
The Best Time to Visit
If you prefer uncrowded spaces, cheaper rental prices, lush environs, and relatively cooler temperatures then the best time to visit is between March–May or September–November. Summer brings throngs of vacationers as well as warm temperatures, not to mention higher accommodation rates. That said, there are interesting cultural events and festivals during this period. Winter is cooler and holds its own charm but hotels might be closed, so ensure your Colorado Springs lodging is booked in advance.
The Garden of the Gods contains an iconic collection of sandstone formations which tower over the landscape and result in a truly humbling experience. North America's highest suspension bridge is located in the Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, also a great spot for zip-lining. America's Olympic City demands that you stop at the United States Olympic Training Center, which houses a velodrome, aquatic center, and shooting center. It's a very educational spot for the kids, as is America's only mountain zoo: Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, home to 800+ species.
Art and Culture
The city has numerous well-maintained museums to document its rich history. For a lowdown on mining, visit the Western Museum of Mining and Industry. The Ghost Town Museum is a journey into Colorado's gold-rush era; look out for the charming old replica town, reminiscent of the 1800s. The state's largest gallery, Garden of the Gods Trading Post, delights visitors with its unique wares and the buffalo burgers served in the café.
Find out who founded Colorado Springs at the Pioneers Museum, or dip into rodeo culture at the ProRodeo Hall of Fame and Museum of the American Cowboy. Thousands of insects from the tropics await bug fanatics at the fascinating May Natural History Museum. The Peterson Air and Space Museum houses aircraft, missiles, and other mechanical highlights. The Colorado Springs Philharmonic and Pikes Peak Center take care of the performing arts needs of the city.
Excursions and Fun Activities
Colorado Springs is a sheer delight for adventure sports lovers and day trippers. Hike up to Pikes Peak, which dominates the city's skyline from the west. If you aren't too claustrophobic, try a tour at the Cave of the Winds. Cycle down 7,000 feet from the top of Pikes Peak, or try your hand (and foot) at rock climbing at Red Rock Canyon.
An hour south of Colorado Springs is the Arkansas River and the Royal Gorge, where whitewater rafting and fishing are popular. West of the city, Manitou Springs is also the base of the Cog Rail and an interesting old town frozen in time. Two hours southwest of Colorado Springs is the Great Sand Dunes National Park, where visitors can slide down gigantic sand dunes.
The North Cheyenne Canon Park affords frequent sightings of mountain lions, black bears, colorful birds, and mule deer. You'll be grateful for a good night's sleep at your Colorado Springs lodging after all this hectic activity!
Annual Events & Festivities
The city's cultural calendar is very robust. The Canon City Music & Blossom Festival in May will please musicians, while adventure enthusiasts will enjoy the Royal Gorge Whitewater Festival held each June.
July's Annual Pikes Peak or Bust Rodeo features bull riding, steer wrestling, and saddle bronc riding. Summer also brings with it the Colorado Springs Summer Rodeo Series. For Mediterranean music, food, culture, and dance, August's Greek Festival does the trick.
The Giant Pumpkin Festival in October showcases the state's plumpest pumpkins, while December's Festival of Lights celebration features stunning floats, parades, bands, horses, and colorful lanterns. Christmas is marked by fairytale lighting, sleigh rides, carol singers, reindeer, cribs, and portly Santa Claus characters strolling the streets.
Truly a city that looks after every guest with regards to food, culture, and the beautiful outdoors, Colorado Springs cabin rentals are the best way to soak up the local vibes and enjoy an unforgettable vacation.
