How to Spend 1 Day in Colorado Springs

How to Spend 1 Day in Colorado Springs

Colorado’s second-largest city and one of America’s first destination resorts, Colorado Springs is part college town, part outdoor adventurer’s playground, and 100 percent beautiful. While you could easily spend a week or more exploring the Front Range, here are some suggestions if you only have a day in town. 

Morning: Pikes Peak

Colorado’s famous fourteener, Pikes Peak doubles as Colorado Springs’ most popular attraction and a must on any visit. Get an early start for a tour to the top of one of the highest points in the Rocky Mountains, or, if you prefer to travel independently, ride the historic cog railway to the top to soak up the views. Stop in the artsy town of Manitou Springs at the base of Pikes Peak for lunch and a bit of window shopping before continuing on to your afternoon adventures.

Afternoon: Garden of the Gods

The red sandstone cathedral spires and towering monoliths of Garden of the Gods date back around 300 million years. Spend some time this afternoon exploring this registered National Natural Landmark. Take an open-air Jeep tour to visit remote areas that few visitors get to see, zip around the Juniper Loop on a Segway as you learn more about the red rock formations, or see the Garden of the Gods from new heights by signing up for a rock-climbing lesson, suitable for beginner or intermediate climbers. 

Night: Downtown Barhop

A day spent outdoors has probably worked up an appetite, so this evening, head to Downtown Colorado Springs for dinner at one of the excellent restaurants. You’ll find options for Mexican, steak, and Continental cuisine to suit all tastes. If you still have energy to burn, pop in to a local brewery for a Colorado craft beer, or make your way to Tejon Street for a late-night barhop. No matter where the night takes you, remember to make a toast to a day well spent.
