Where to stay in Colorado Springs

To experience the scenic beauty surrounding Colorado Springs while on holiday, consider staying at a resort just outside the city, offering sweeping views of the mountains plus access to championship golf courses, tennis courts, and spa/fitness facilities. You can also discover Colorado's great outdoors by pitching a tent at one of the area's many campgrounds, or by renting a cozy cottage or mountain cabin.  If you prefer to stay near downtown, consider a moderately priced inn or motel, located a short walk from the city's finest shops and restaurants.

  • If you like history, the National Museum of World War II Aviation is a must see. Tucked away in the corner of the Colorado Sprrings airport, it's a little hard to find but we'll worth seeking out. Unl...  more »

  • We came in from Texas and saw the museum, we decided to go and it ended up being one of our most educational and fun experiences! Everyone was so nice and pleasurable. We even did a flight stimulator! Definitely would go again and it's so much more fun when you do it with a guide!!
  • Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. Lots of fully-restored, authentic aircraft (including some lesser-known ones that were created at the end of the war). Great way for history and aviation buffs to kill a few hours.
  • This place is amazing if you love the history of ww2 like me,and the planes they have here are beautiful and look mean
  • Amazing, clean, friendly and priced right! The restoration part of the tour is so cool. My tour guide Tim was knowledgeable and very professional. The unique items in the gift shop are made from non restorable aircraft parts & original art.
  • The guided tour was super informative and awesome. They take you next door to the restoration hanger. And Gene was incredibly informative. Great experience.
