Visit Colorado Springs with Inspirato and stay at one of the state’s most iconic and historic resorts: The Broadmoor. Located about 70 miles south of Denver and nestled up against Pikes Peak, this sprawling resort is one of only 13 triple 5-star hotels in the world. Discover three golf courses, three swimming pools, 20 restaurants, a world-class spa, and an on-site movie theater—plus an array of alpine excursions at your fingertips.
Founded by civic-minded adventurers who extracted their first fortunes from the booming gold mines of nearby Cripple Creek, Colorado Springs still offers a sense of adventure. The city sits at the base of Pikes Peak, the most visited mountain in North America thanks to the cog railway and highway that leads to its summit at 14,115 feet above sea level. Make the trek to the top to see the view that inspired the song “America the Beautiful.” Elsewhere, you can tour the U.S. Olympic Headquarters and Training Center, visit the campus of the United States Air Force Academy, or marvel at the red sandstone rock formations within the aptly named Garden of the Gods.
Head to nearby Manitou Springs, the departure point for an eye-popping round trip on the world's highest cog railway. Along the 9-mile journey toward the summit, the conductor offers commentary on the railway’s history and the wildlife on the mountain.
Nestled on a sprawling mountainside, the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is a must-see for the family. Here, you can hand-feed giraffes bundles of lettuce, ride a tram for an aerial view of a tiger habitat, and see grizzly bears, mountain lions, and more in their natural mountain settings.
Allow Inspirato to book you and your sweetie an hour-long flight in the hands of a skilled balloonist. You'll have incredible views of the Rocky Mountains, a continental breakfast and chilled champagne to toast the occasion.
Each year's spring snowmelt means one thing: the Arkansas River rapids are ready to ride. We can arrange your group's adventure on this sought-after stretch of river with options that are easy for families and large groups.
Combine a relaxing picnic lunch with a trip to one of the region's must-see geologic wonders: Garden of the Gods. A paved hiking path winds around the red sandstone rock formations, some of which soar 300 feet into the air.
Cave of the Winds is an underground wonder and one of the country's premier show caves. These geological formations are viewable via family tours and programs. Located west of Colorado Springs, this is an excellent day trip.
Colorado Springs is perched 6,000 feet above sea level, receiving more than 300 days of sunshine on average per year. In winter, these sunny skies usually cause moderate snowfall to melt quickly. During the rest of the year, mild temperatures and dry conditions foster an ideal environment for enjoying the area's many outdoor activities. July and August are slightly rainier than average, but thunderstorms tend to move through and dissipate quickly.
