Visit Colorado Springs.
Wing your way to Colorado Springs Airport the next time the mountains are calling your name. Hop on a Southwest flight and you’ll be in The Springs in no time. In fact, your sightseeing can begin almost as soon as you deplane: the Peterson Air and Space Museum, inside the Peterson Air Force Base, is located right next door to the airport. The base and the airport share an airfield and the museum buildings used to be active terminals. Learn about the base’s World War II history or tour the Air Park to explore the museum’s collection of aircraft.
Once you’ve had your fill of aviation and it’s time to leave the airport area, hop on the Mountain Metropolitan Transit bus or grab a rental car and get going. If you’re after more museums, there are plenty in the area, including the Ghost Town Museum. Learn what it was like to live in the Wild West with activities and exhibits that let you step back in time to when the Pikes Peak region was in its infancy. For a taste of modern Colorado Springs culture, visit one of the city’s many art galleries or grab a map for Art on the Streets and take a self-guided walking tour of publicly viewable outdoor art installations.
Colorado Springs is known for its walkability, so you may find yourself ditching your rental car quite often. In fact, thanks to the municipal bike paths, lanes, and trails, you may find that biking (with a convenient rental) is a better way to get around town. If mountain biking is more your speed, locals love Barr Trail and the Pikes Peak Highway. If you’d like a bike tour of Garden of the Gods, you can take one on an electric bike—which makes getting around a bit easier. There are plenty of indoor and outdoor sports to enjoy in Colorado Springs, either as a participant or a spectator. The area is a popular destination for sports organizations’ training and special events, so see what’s on the calendar during your visit.
