Ranked #1 Best New Attraction by USA Today’s 10Best Readers’ Choice Awards, the Museum is one of the most accessible and interactive in the world. It’s perfect for groups of any size, from smaller off-site meetings to a full museum buyout, with state-of-the-art design and technology that allows for easy navigation throughout the exhibit spaces.

2. Catch a game at Weidner Field.

​Opening in spring 2021, Weidner Field, home of the Colorado Springs Switchbacks FC, is located in the heart of Downtown Colorado Springs. Cheer on the soccer team in its newly opened home while enjoying local libations in one of the numerous VIP spaces with views of Pikes Peak and Downtown Colorado Springs.

3. Enjoy dinner and a show at the Flying W Ranch.

Open for the season starting in late May, the Flying W Ranch will kick off its second year since reopening. Indulge in a delicious BBQ dinner while being serenaded by the Flying W Wranglers. Flying W can accommodate up to 1,000 people with its indoor and outdoor dining spaces.

4. Take the Cog Railway up Pikes Peak – America’s Mountain.

After being closed since 2017, The Broadmoor Manitou and Pikes Peak Cog Railway reopens in May 2021. Plan a group trip up the world’s highest Cog train to the summit of Pikes Peak at 14,115 feet. While at the top, enjoy a stop at the new Pikes Peak Summit Visitor Center opening summer 2021.

5. Visit the National Museum of WWII Aviation.

Hold an evening cocktail reception for up to 1,000 guests while exploring the role of aviation in World War II and seeing restored planes from the era. Located conveniently near the Colorado Springs Airport, this unique museum will make a plane enthusiast out of anyone.
