Things to Do in Colorado Springs CO

August 6, 2023

Colorado Springs is a wonderful place to live, combining stunning nature and city perks. Our Stonebridge at Meridian Ranch community combines many of those elements, making it a great place to look for homes in Colorado Springs CO. With walking trails, a rec center, clubhouse, pools, fitness center, and much more, you’ll always have plenty to enjoy. Still the city is home to its own array of activities and entertainment for the whole family.

One of the most popular destinations is the Garden of the Gods, known for its huge red rocks that seem to stick straight up out of the ground. Admission is free and you can drive through the area, but going on foot along the trails gives you the best experience. There’s a Visitor and Nature Center to learn about the park,  and for kids, don’t miss the Geo Trekker Theater to enjoy the immersive show that covers millions of years of history and a view of the Garden of the Gods from the sky.

Stonebridge at Meridian Ranch offers views of Pikes Peak from the many walking trails, but you can always go to the peak itself. There’s a train that can take you up, and the new Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center ensures amazing views, including views of five states when the weather is good. In addition, you’ll enjoy some fun ways to learn more about the history of the mountain and you can take in additional exhibits, visit the gift shops, and enjoy some dining opportunities, including the special high-altitude doughnuts, which sag and melt when you descend down the mountain.

Another fun family outing includes the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, which is home to more than 700 animals. As well as viewing the range of animals, often in country-themed areas within the zoo, there are additional fun activities, animal interactions, and as always, great city views.

Sports enthusiasts will love the US Olympic and Paralympic Training Center, one of the country’s top two campuses where the best athletes train. There are public tours where you can see some of these athletes hard at work, and there’s also a museum that offers a look at the lives of Olympians with art, videos, and artifacts, adding a personal touch. The center is also home to one of the few velodromes in the country, and is the official venue for track cycling and roller sports. Finally, don’t miss the Broadmoor World Arena Ice Hall, the “home ice” for the country’s ice-skating athletes. There’s even a World Figure Skating Museum where you can learn about the international history of this popular sport.

These are just a few of the sights to see and things to do in Colorado Springs. With so many onsite amenities at Stonebridge at Meridian Ranch, including thoughtfully designed homes, as well as all that the city and surrounding area has to offer, it’s easy to see why people choose one of our homes in Colorado Springs CO.
