My wife is accusing me of becoming a Facebook junky, and she’s probably right. One of the things I noticed however, since signing up, is how many different things there are to do around Colorado Springs that people find. Here are some examples that I’ve seen or heard about people doing in the past week or so (many on Facebook!):
Attend a Rockies baseball game in Denver (they are in 2nd place in the NL West at the moment)
See the AAA SkySox locally instead
Water World waterslides in Denver
Elitches Theme and Water Park in Denver
Hiking in these gorgeous mountains
Fishing in our beautiful clear mountain streams or lakes
Boating and water skiing down in Pueblo at Pueblo Reservoir
Attend a music or food festival in one of the mountain towns
Attend a music or food festival here in the Springs
White water rafting on Arkansas River
Go to Cripple Creek to sightsee or gamble
Go the movies
Swimming at a community pool
Visit Rocky Mountain National Park
Ok, I know you can do some of these anywhere. The point is, there are lots of things to do here in the summer! There are of course plenty of other things to do, our tourist attractions include things like Pikes Peak Cog Railway, Royal Gorge, 7 Falls, Cave of the Winds, Manitou Cliff Dwellings, Garden of the Gods, the Air Force Academy, Focus on the Family, and on it goes.
Missing from the list? Surfing.
