Ready, Set, Spring(s) things to do
So, it snowed in Colorado Springs yesterday, on March 27th. BUT, there is hope, spring is just around the corner so here is a list of funs to do here in the Springs in the SPRING! Check out this list of things to do.
Located at the Lake Terrace on the property of the famous Broadmoor this can be a fun outdoor Sunday activity for the entire family. Adults are $52 a plate and children under 10 are $17 a plate, but when I say all you can eat, I mean ALL you can eat of some of the most delicious food in Colorado Springs. The Broadmoor is an event in itself, it’s a must see in the spring.
This outdoor activities is affordable and fun for everyone. The sun shining on the Academy is beautiful and for a cheap price you have access to a host of horses and property for your family. You can do guided tours with a professional, or if you’re a pro yourself, you can take the horses out onto the trails alone for a peaceful ride.
located just a few miles west of downtown, Manitou Springs offers exploration right around the corner. There are beautiful stops through Manitou that offer fresh mineral springs. If you’re feeling fancy, there is a beautiful spa called the SunWater Spa, that offers mineral water bathes, Yoga, massages, and all kinds of spa treatments. The best part? the Mineral Bathes are outside with a GREAT view of the Rocky Mountains.
Ranked no. 6 in the USA Today fan poll of Readers’ Choice national zoo’s. This zoo is incredibly scenic and on a clear day, you can practically see to Kansas! Passes for a membership are also usually on sale in early spring, and trust me! You will get your use out of a yearly membership.
Okay, no one wants to think about snow in April, but we are at 6,500 feet and right next to the mountains so who know…. either way, Great Wolf Lodge is an awesome getaway for a stay-cation in Colorado Springs. There is a spa, guest rooms, and a HUGE indoor water park with activities for kids of all ages
For just $10, the outdoor cliff dwellings are a historic locations along the rockies that offer exploration, and gift shop and museum. These cliff dwellings are a representation of the homes in which the first settlers and Native Americans would have lived in in Colorado Springs. So cool!
The high flying fun is never ending at the Cave of the Winds. This is fun for adults and kids alike and here they offer fun outdoor activities and exploration. A “bat-a-pult”, Wind Walker Challenge Course, Terror-Dactyl, Cliff hanging climber wall, Panning for gemstones, and restaurants and shopping just to name a few things! You have to check this place out in the spring time.
