If you have longed for a vacation in the stunning natural landscape of Colorado Springs, you can start by looking for a place that suits your vacation plans. Thousands of tourists visit these every year for soaking up some nature.
While keeping close to nature can be relaxing, it also becomes a bit of a burden when you don’t have proper accommodation to come back to. I consider myself fortunate to have found a rental condo in the Colorado Springs. The location was perfect; at the base of Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains – ideally close to the popular tourist hotspots.
Colorado Springs has a rich cultural background and you can still see the charming towns settled by miners and ranchers there. Colorado Springs Downtown offers special shopping opportunities for tourists. The U.S. Air Force Academy is located just north of the city, and a lot of tourists visit the Cadet Chapel and the Honor Court. The U.S. Olympic Training Center was another much valued attraction of the place. After all you don’t get to see the world class athletes in action every day. This is a really inspirational place and is one of the only three such training centers in America.
Located in the foothills of Pikes Peak, the Garden of the Gods is another amazing place to visit. There are just so many things to do in this city park. Activities you may find interesting include biking, birding, hiking, nature trails, rock climbing, scenic drives, and wildlife viewing.
Colorado Springs Philharmonic and Pikes Peak Center are the hubs of performing arts in the region. You can attend several shows that are staged here regularly. Other indoor attractions include the Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the American Numismatic Association Money Museum. The last one is a must see for coin collectors and will even get your kids’ attention!
When I was looking for accommodation in Colorado, I found the website ByOwner.com very useful. In only a matter of minutes, I found what we were looking for – you may too; whether it is a mansion that you are looking to rent or a studio apartment. I was able to plan my stay precisely, down to the last hour, by browsing through the Colorado vacation rentals here. The Advanced Search feature is a very useful tool to streamline your search according to your specifications. What we wanted was a place that offered plenty of outdoor as well as indoor recreation and we got exactly that.
The rental condo which we selected was ideally situated, only a few minutes’ drive from the Colorado Springs. It was more convenient than hotel rooms and offered freedom as well as economy. It allowed us to live it up and explore the Seven Falls fully and offered an ideal place to put up our feet after a day spent hiking, climbing and biking in what is known as the most beautiful canyon in the world. At the same time we were right in the middle of the hustle and bustle of the city, hence we got to see the fabulous lighting festivals that color up the whole state during holiday season and many indoor attractions too.
