Colorado Springs is accessible by air, with many flights from major US cities. When you land at the Colorado Springs Airport, use a taxi, shuttle services, or chauffeured cars to get downtown, which is just 12 miles away. To get to the university from the airport, take the I-25N and exit 146. The journey should last approximately 23 minutes.
The area is a great destination year round – head to the nearby natural park, the Garden of the Gods, take a 19-mile scenic drive along Pike’s Peak Highway, or hike the Barr Trail for gorgeous views of the Rocky Mountains. If you're not outdoorsy, you'll find plenty to keep you occupied at the Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Olympic Training Center.
Families with young children will love Colorado Springs. Keep the kids entertained at the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo or the North Pole, a holiday-themed park. There’s also the Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center and the May Natural Museum to satisfy inquisitive minds, and for a bit of spooky fun, check out the Ghost Town Museum.
