Discover things to do in Colorado Springs | Colorado Springs Gazette, News

Your Guide to the Pikes Peak Region

No matter what season we're in, there's a lot of things to do in Colorado Springs.

The colorful fall brings a return to school days in the Pike's Peak region's 17 school districts, private schools, colleges and institutes. In the cold of winter, we find comfort food and nourishment in the vast number of dining establishments. Spring tempts us outside to discover our area's multitude of hiking and biking trails. In summer, we look for day trips or longer getaways and explore the many attractions right here at home.

Discover provides pages of fundamental information in one place, so you can find it when you need it. School districts, museums, religious organizations, higher education, special getaways, sports and many other essentials of living in our fair city are covered.
