REGINA, Colorado – Colorado Springs has breathtaking views everywhere. The city sits right at the foot of the Rocky Mountains and one of the nation’s most famous landmarks – Pikes Peak.
From hiking to biking to running, there is great weather year round and there are lots of things to do outside in Colorado Springs. From the Manitou Incline, which climbs nearly 2,000 feet in less than a mile, to the Garden of the Gods, a 13 acre park of sandstone cliffs. There is also a zoo and countless parks.
“The best thing about the Springs is just being in the city and being close to nature, even though there are thousands of people around,” said Adam Drake of Colorado Springs.
The area offers more than 60 attractions, including a recently opened professional football stadium with 10,000 seats.
“We have many attractions that are opening at just the right time as everyone is out of the pandemic and so excited to travel again,” said Jamie Fabos, chief communications officer for the City of Colorado Springs.
The Olympic Training Center has been based there for over 40 years. The only Olympic and Paralympic museum in the USA opened last year in Colorado Springs.
“Athletes come and enjoy the Colorado Springs lifestyle,” said Fabos. “You train because we are at a height, which is a little more difficult to train at 200 meters.”
The city known as “The Springs” has been named America’s Most Desirable City for the past 3 years.
