Located at the eastern foot of the Rocky Mountains, the city’s prime foliage viewing begins in September. Make The Broadmoor your home during your stay. This luxury property first opened its doors more than a century ago. The resort boasts 20 dining outlets, two golf courses, a spa and retail shops.


Visit Seven Falls, a stunning series of waterfalls located within a canyon. For adventure seekers, opt for a zip lining experience along with your visit. Experience the Rocky Mountains up close with a visit to Pikes Peak. The summit at 14,000 feet can be reached via Pikes Peak Cog Railway. Stop for a refreshment at Summit Visitor Center before taking the railway back or opt to bike or hike down the mountain.

Spend time exploring downtown Colorado Springs. The city boasts a thriving art scene. Check out Art on the Streets, a public art initiative turning the city’s downtown into an outdoor art gallery. Additionally, visitors may opt for a guided or self-guided tour of the downtown art scene.


The city hosts several events this September. Celebrate Labor Day weekend at Colorado Springs Labor Day Lift Off, a hot-air balloon event complete with a beer garden, 5k race and live entertainment. Perfect for mountain bikers, visit Sept. 8–10 for the Pikes Peak APEX, a three-day mountain bike challenge available for amateurs and pros alike.
