The Affordable Colorado Staycation That Seems Almost Too Good To Be True
Is it just me, or has all of this cold winter weather given anyone else to urge to escape everyday life? Since most of our bank accounts will not allow us to splurge on a vacation whenever our hearts desire, we have to get creative – which is why we began scouring the state for affordable Colorado staycations. Our findings? This place in Colorado is both affordable and super fun.
When it comes to an affordable Colorado staycation, there is no beating scenic Colorado Springs, whose very motto is to "Live it up!"
Incorporated in 1886, Colorado Springs was once a vital Centennial State mining town that has continually morphed and changed into the exciting city it is today.
Why do we recommend heading to the Springs for a cheap and fun getaway? It's thanks to its countless free attractions, such as the beautiful Garden of the Gods...
The Garden of the Gods is a true sight to behold, as it is made up of red rock formations comprised of deposited red, pink, and white sandstone, conglomerate, and limestone created millions of years ago during a geological upheaval.
…The United States Air Force Academy...
Pictured above is the iconic Cadet Chapel, which was built in 1962 and features dramatic 150-foot-tall spires, a steel frame, and a jaw-dropping interior.
…as well as ample shopping, special events and festivals, museums, and more.
Take our advice and walk around downtown on a sunny day!
In addition to free things to do, Colorado Springs is also home to a number of affordable attractions that are sure to entertain everyone in the family.
Not sure where you're going to stay? Don't sweat it, as sites like
Airbnb offer entire HOUSES to rent for as little as $43 per night.
Raise your hand if you are ready to eat, explore, and play your way through exciting Colorado Springs!
