Living in Colorado Springs, Colorado

An ever-popular tourist destination, Colorado Springs is welcoming and beautiful any time of the year. Whether you're planning to take in the scenery, hike a mountain or be pampered at a world-class spa, this breathtaking city has something for everyone! Speaking of breathtaking, if you are a first-timer to our high altitude and arid climate, you may want to take it a little bit easy until your body can adjust. Our altitude may make you experience a more rapid heartbeat, shortness of breath, chapped lips and quick sunburn. Compared with sea level, we are more than a mile closer to the sun, so the air is thinner and clearer. Be sure to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and apply that sunscreen!
