Love beer? Check out The Springs Craft Brewery Tour, newly launched this summer!

Rocky Mountain Food Tours

Whether you’re planning an intimate celebration with close friends or are simply looking to get a break from the typical COVID-19 park gathering, we’ve put together a list of five creative ways to gather in small groups in Colorado Springs!

After months of quarantine and little social interaction, spending time with friends in the backyard or park was a welcome change. However, with the imminent change of seasons, outdoor gatherings will become less and less appealing. With more time spent indoors with your immediate circle of family members and close friends, creativity will be key when it comes to small group gatherings!

As you’re venturing back out into the world with more and more confidence, you’ll find that there are plenty of ways to have fun in small groups. Of course, we always recommend checking in with the current local restrictions and mandates and never doing something that makes you or the people you are with uncomfortable!

Here are five creative ideas for small group gatherings this season!

 

Take a Culinary Adventure on a Guided Food Tour

Looking to switch up your typical dining out experience? Join Rocky Mountain Food Tours for a culinary adventure with your closest friends! You’ll visit five of Colorado Springs’ best restaurants, taste highlights from each menu, and learn about the city’s unique culinary scene and history from a local expert. Pick from one of our tours or create a custom experience for your group! Click here to learn more about our options and schedule your tour today!

While masks are required during portions of the tour, we’ve enhanced our tour experience with audio headsets. Each tour guest will receive their very own receiver to use throughout the tour so everyone can hear as their Tour Leader shares about the interesting and exciting history of Colorado Springs!
