Destination Colorado Focus On: Colorado Springs – These Southern Colorado Mountains Mean Business
By Colorado Springs Convention & Visitors Bureau
There are so many fantastic meeting destination choices within the state of Colorado, so it can be difficult to pick just one. Colorado Springs is a vivacious Rocky Mountain destination that makes the choice easy. The area is easily accessible located just 70 miles south of Denver and offers an array of value lodging, off-site event venues and out-of-this-world natural beauty. Not to mention you’ll be keeping your event right here in the great state of Colorado.
Colorado Springs is home to the U.S. Olympic Committee, U.S. Air Force Academy and ProRodeo Hall of Fame. It’s the perfect location for exceptional performance, creating a higher ground for attendees to refresh, discover and network. The inspiring views of Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain – are seen from almost anywhere in town, and our 6,035-foot elevation might also have something to do with it.
Recreation is abundant and around every corner. Horseback riding in Garden of the Gods Park, ascending the 224 steps to the top of Seven Falls or hiking the paths of Cheyenne Mountain State Park are all opportunities to connect with the elevated beauty of Colorado Springs.
Itinerary building and event planning is a cinch with over 55 attractions and activities. Some of the newest team building opportunities include hanging 600-feet above Williams Canyon on the Wind Walker Challenge Course, jumping on their “Bat-a-Pult” zipline, sipping the seasonal brews of Colorado Mountain Brewery, speeding around Pikes Peak International Raceway with the expert guidance of the Bob Bondurant School of High Performance Racing or walking with a wolf at the Colorado Wolf & Wildlife Center.
As you’re choosing the perfect property for overnight stays, breakout sessions or an off-site reception, the region has exclusive options. Lodging ranges from popular brands like the Colorado Springs Marriott and Antlers Hilton, to truly Colorado choices like The Broadmoor, Sundance Mountain Lodge or Cliff House at Pikes Peak. Home to nearly 14,000 guestrooms, the area is flexible to meet various group needs. Gems such as Cheyenne Mountain Zoo – America’s only mountain zoo – U.S. Olympic Training Center, Royal Gorge Bridge & Park, The Depot Events Center, Cottonwood Center for the Arts and Sky Sox Baseball Club all showcase some of the region’s 400,000+ square feet of flexible meeting space.
