How to Spend 2 Days in Colorado Springs

How to Spend 2 Days in Colorado Springs

While Colorado Springs may be best-known as a gateway to outdoor adventure in Colorado’s Front Range, it also packs plenty of cultural appeal in its own right. With two days to spend in the area, you’ll have time to see the star natural attractions and spend some time exploring town. Here’s how.

Day 1: Around Town

**Morning:**Get an early start this morning to see Colorado Springs from a different perspective, aboard a hot-air balloon. There’s no better way to get an overview of the region’s scenic beauty than from above, where you’ll get spectacular views of Pikes Peak, the Garden of the Gods, and the rocky mountains. Finish off your experience with a Champagne breakfast back on solid ground.

**Afternoon:**Now that you’ve seen Colorado Springs from above, see it from street level. Explore on your own, or, for a fun alternative, opt for an app-guided scavenger hunt that takes you through downtown searching for clues, answering trivia questions, and performing challenges. 

**Night:**This evening, make your way to historic Tejon Street, home to some of the oldest buildings in Colorado Springs, for a night out on the down. Pick one of the many area restaurants for dinner, complemented by a cold Colorado-brewed beer.

Day 2: Great Outdoors

**Morning:**Today is all about exploring the natural wonders of Colorado Springs, starting with Colorado’s most famous summit, Pikes Peak. Take a guided tour to the top of this iconic fourteener, or travel on your own by riding the historic cog railway to the top. Either way, the views can’t be beat. 

**Afternoon:**This afternoon you’ll have time to explore another star attraction, the majestic Garden of the Gods. You have several options for touring the area, including by Jeep, Segway, or on a rock-climbing tour (suitable for both beginner or intermediate climbers).

**Night:**This evening, head to the neighboring town of Manitou Springs, an artsy community at the base of Pikes Peak, for dinner and a stroll. Be sure to taste test the water from the eight different mineral springs—all open to the public—to see which one’s best.
