From amazing cuisine to the great outdoors, there are plenty of opportunities to explore and find your perfect adventure.

Tours in Colorado are a fun way to learn the inside scoop on a state that is on the forefront of innovation, culture, and new experiences. Here at Rocky Mountain Food Tours, we provide a truly amazing culinary journey for you and your group. No matter the season, our tours are running and are the perfect addition to your itinerary!

 

Spring

When Should You Visit Colorado Springs? | Spring

If you are in pursuit of outdoor adventures, visit Colorado Springs in the spring. The temperature ranges between 50 to 60 degrees, so hiking and bike riding are perfect activities. We recommend the Seven Bridges Trail, which is 3.7 miles of moderate terrain that rewards its visitors with a beautiful waterfall along the way. Feel the brisk spring air rush your face as you tackle one of the local zip lines. We recommend The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure or the Castle Rock Zip Line Tours located just 45 minutes north on the way to Denver.

Consider visiting the Paint Mines east of Colorado Springs. This fascinating geological area is pronounced by white clay formations that have streaks of golden yellow, white, and pink. Feel free to wonder around, do a bit of hiking, and take a selfie with the rocks set behind you. The park is a beautiful contrast to the high plains of El Paso County, and best of all, admission is free.

Here are some more ideas on how to enjoy spring in Colorado Springs:

 

Summer

When Should You Visit Colorado Springs? | Summer

Come to Colorado Springs in the summer to enjoy the relaxed vibe and vibrant culture. As in any place that enjoys a robust tourist season, there are generally more people enjoying the local attractions, so it’s best to plan ahead.

The period from June to August is peak tourist season in Colorado Springs. Temperatures range between 70 to 90 degrees, but it can get chilly at night, so don’t forget a light jacket. If you are planning to enjoy some outdoor time, this is the right time to visit Colorado Springs – just watch out for those afternoon thunderstorms!

One of the most exciting activities to do in Colorado Springs during summer is visit Garden of the Gods. Take in the breathtaking views of the red rock formations and miles of trails for biking and hiking. Take a moment to walk through the Visitor and Nature Center, especially if you have little ones. Experience the wonder and beauty of this nationally recognized park for free.

There are truly so many things to do in summertime in Colorado Springs! Here are a few more ideas for your trip:

 

Fall

When Should You Visit Colorado Springs? | Fall

The weather in the fall is some of the best all year round! Temperatures range from 50 to 75 degrees (getting much colder at night), but the rains and hail of the summer have past. Typically, the first snowfall is around Halloween.

Pikes Peak and the Rocky Mountains are one of the most exciting places to visit during fall. Don’t miss out on the radiant red and golden yellow leaves! On the Pike Peaks Highway (catch a ride on the shuttle for a fee), you can enjoy a quiet view of the mountains. The vast alpine wonderland and the beautiful mountain reservoirs are amazing. For the ultimate physical challenge, hike or cycle up America’s Favorite Mountain.

Fall is beautiful, but it is also short! Don’t miss the changing of the leaves and plan on taking a short day-trip to Aspen, Vail, Telluride, or Steamboat Springs. Check out this guide to see where and when the most vibrant colors will likely occur.

Here are a few more fun activities to enjoy:

 

Winter

When Should You Visit Colorado Springs? | Winter

The temperatures start to go down from November to February, and the number of tourists goes down as well (except in the mountains!). Colorado Springs enjoys a temperate climate, and so average daily highs are about 45 degrees, and snow melts quickly.

Winter is a great time to explore our famous Broadmoor Hotel located in the southwest part of the city. Decorated for the holidays, this sprawling property offers several culinary experiences and even offers cooking classes. Check out the huge gingerbread house prominently displayed in Broadmoor Main.

Regardless of the season you choose to visit, take advantage of your time in Colorado Springs and explore all of the exciting activities! Experience a food tour with us while you’re here – it will certainly be a sweet treat!
