Colorado Springs

City of Millionaires

National Landmark red cliffs and the even more striking Pikes Peak mountain attracts tourism to Colorado Springs. One of the country's tallest mountains, Pikes Peak rises nearly 2,500 m (8,000 ft) above the city on the edge of the Rocky Mountains. Situated near the base of the mountain, Colorado Springs sits nearly 2 km (1 mi) above sea level. The city of about 440,000 is home to four major military installations and the U.S. Air Force Academy. The easiest way to get your bearings during your trip here is to start at the downtown visitor center, which offers free information about the area's major attractions. Colorado Springs is in El Paso County. Use our United States holiday builder tool to arrange the details of your trip to Colorado Springs and other destinations.

Best things to do in Colorado Springs

Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.
