Adventurous couples will have their fill of fun in beautiful Colorado Springs, Colorado, just south of Denver. With impressive landscapes and mountain views at every turn, there’s plenty of outdoor activities and more than a few ways to stoke the flames of romance.
Cripple Creek, a historic mining town located at the base of Pikes Peak, offers a variety of casinos for an entertaining night out. Beginners can try their luck at the slot machines, while more advanced players may want to play Blackjack, roulette or even poker.
Can you imagine a view of the Rocky Mountains, including Pikes Peak, from the sky? It’s quite a sight! Hold your loved one’s hand as you fly high above Colorado Springs with Colorado Vertical.
Choose from tours of the Royal Gorge and bridge, Big Horn Sheep Canyon, the Cripple Creek Mining District, Pikes Peak, the Bison Reservoir and more.
Another great way to see Colorado Springs from on high is via a hot air balloon with Colorado Hot Air Balloon Rides. You’ll marvel at the pilot’s skill in navigating the balloon through the wind while you float above some of America’s most beautiful scenery, which inspired the song “America the Beautiful.”
In Colorado Springs, you can fly at the highest altitude in a hot air balloon in the country! The ride includes snacks prior to launch, classical music during the flight, a possible opportunity to try flying the balloon yourself and a post-flight champagne celebration after your pilot guides you in for a landing.
Can you imagine a sky-high smooch with your sweetie on top of the highest suspension bridge in the U.S.? Set above the Royal Gorge Canyon over the Arkansas River, the bridge stands more than 1,000 feet above the river, and is a popular place to whitewater raft.
It just so happens that the Royal Gorge Bridge was also voted the top spot to steal a kiss on Colorado.com. Visitors suggest waiting until you reach the middle where you’ll find the most epic views.
These magnificent 300-million-year-old red rock formations that jut out of the ground in Colorado Springs are a marvel to behold and a great spot for adventurous couples to enjoy unique area scenery.
Take a horseback ride through the rocks, which are actually part of a free city park called the Garden of the Gods, in search of the formation known as the “kissing Camels,” another great place to steal a kiss! You might also want to bring along a picnic, and be sure to post a selfie by the “camels” on Instagram.
For a truly romantic getaway, book a stay at Cloud Camp, one of The Broadmoor’s three wilderness experiences. If you prefer more of a traditional indulgence, stay at the main hotel that sits at the foot of the Cheyenne Mountains. Be sure to make a reservations for a celebratory dinner at one of the many restaurants on property.
