The Scenery

As perhaps, one of the most compelling reasons to visit Southern Colorado (SoCo), the scenery of this beautiful utopia is one of the area’s most attractive features for vacationers and those wishing to relocate alike. When we’re talking about cabins and lodging located at the base of the Rocky Mountains, with the perfect view of grandeur, it’s impossible not to appreciate all that this natural wonder has to offer. Visit the nearby Arkansas River and Texas Creek, the Westcliffe and Silver Cliff, or find a nearby national park or forest. When you’re in Colorado, those aren’t too hard to come by. There is no shortage of option when it comes to natural beauty here in The Rocky Mountain State. Find a secluded cabin with a one-of-a-kind mountain view to wake up to, or go with a lodge that offers a few more opportunities for socialization. However you choose to appreciate one of the most gorgeous areas in the world, you won’t regret your decision to appreciate the beauty of SoCo.

Solitude or Socialization

One of the best things about vacationing in Southern Colorado is that you almost always have a great choice for whether you want a destination with lots of opportunities for solitude, or options to stay social and engaging with others. Many couples on a romantic getaway or babymoon might choose a secluded cabin so that they will have plenty of much-needed alone time, other vacationers might enjoy the fast-paced, busier feel of a location that houses more people. Whatever you choose for your ideal Colorado vacation, you simply can’t go wrong with Discover SoCo.

Colorado Springs

With our cabins and lodges right outside the gorgeous city of Colorado Springs, there is never a shortage of fun things to do. Enjoy a hike up Pikes Peak for a view that you’ll love and an activity that won’t challenge you too much. Visit The Garden of the Gods to see some of the most glorious and one-of-a-kind natural rock formations and beautiful scenes. If you’re ready for some indoor activities, check out the Figure Skating Hall of Fame or the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, both of which are located in Colorado Springs!

Hot Springs
