Colorado Springs is the place to be for outdoor enthusiasts — even winter can’t stop us! While summer provides ample hiking, climbing, biking, and so on, winter brings its own set of outdoor opportunities! Mueller State Park is the perfect place to explore Colorado in the winter. Families can enjoy sledding and tubing, and snowy trails and be discovered by cross country skis and snowshoes. Winter campgrounds are even open for the truly adventurous and warm-blooded.

 

Ice Skating in Downtown Colorado Springs

Lace up your skates and enjoy Downtown Colorado Springs from a new perspective this winter! Acacia Park’s ice rink is open this year with COVID-19 regulations in place to make sure everyone can skate without worry! Whether you’re planning a romantic date for two or surprising your kiddos with a winter adventure, ice skating downtown is the perfect way to spend your day or evening this winter.

 

Go on a Food Adventure

Deciding on the perfect spot for dinner is always a pain, so let us do the work for you! Rocky Mountain Food Tours is here to give you an effortless night of exploring new foods, sipping on delicious seasonal drinks, and learning unique tidbits of Colorado Springs history! Cozy up in some of the city’s favorite joints and get the inside scoop from owners and chefs themselves.

Due to COVID-19, we are currently running The Original Colorado Springs Food Tour and private tours (for those of you looking for a more customized experience), but stay tuned for our other amazing culinary tours to relaunch soon!

 

Celebrate the Holidays on a Scenic Train Ride

Embrace your sense of wonder this winter with a winter adventure at The Royal Gorge! For 360-degree views of the gorge, the Holiday train rides are the way to go. Visitors can choose between the Breakfast with Santa Train, the Santa Express Train, or the Holiday Train Experience, each providing a winter experience you’ll never forget! Those looking for a slower-paced adventure can enjoy the Afternoon Tea with Santa at the Royal Gorge Mansion.

 

Stroll the Streets for Treasures

Grab a cup of hot cocoa from our friends over at Pikes Peak Lemonade and take a magical stroll through one of the city’s shopping districts. Downtown Colorado Springs, Old Colorado City, and Manitou Springs truly shine during the winter as boutiques, cafes, apothecaries, book stores, and beyond beckon shoppers in. Here at Rocky Mountain Food Tours, we’re all about supporting local business, so be sure to get your Holiday shopping done at these amazing local boutiques and shops!

 

Get Cozy at Glen Eyrie

Whether you’re visiting for a winter tea at the castle or staying overnight, there’s nowhere cozier in the winter than Glen Eyrie Castle. And yes — it is an actual castle, built by the founder of Colorado Springs, General Palmer, in 1871. Explore the castle grounds and hiking trails or grab a warm beverage from the cafe and learn about the history of Colorado Springs in one of the city’s most enchanting locations.

 

The sun might go down while we’re still at work, but that doesn’t mean winter can’t be magical! Remember to end 2020 on a high note and tag us in your winter adventures this season!

Cheers! Your Rocky Mountain Food Tours Team

(So, what’s a food tour, anyway…?)
