Now that weddings and celebrations are back in full swing, we’ve put together an itinerary for the perfect bachelorette and bachelor weekend in Colorado Springs!
Book a Room
First things first, you need somewhere to stay!
Reserve a bunk room at Kinship Landing downtown so you and all your friends can be in one room together. With eight bunk beds, there’s room for everyone. If you’re interested in more space of your own, check out Cascade Escapes to reserve a cabin (and a hot tub!) nestled at the foot of Pikes Peak.
For the more traditional route, plenty of hotels around town offer group rates and packages. Explore our list of hotels & motels around the Pikes Peak Region here.
Set the Agenda
Whether you’re looking for fun for the whole squad or some quality time with your friends, there’s plenty to explore.
If relaxation is the goal, get all signed up for a group paddleboard yoga session with Dragonfly Paddle Yoga, where you’ll leave feeling renewed and balanced. Spas around the city including Strata Integrated Wellness Spa at the Garden of the Gods Resort, Alluvia Spa and Wellness Retreat and The Spa at The Broadmoor offer group yoga classes, massages, facials and more!
For the adrenaline-seeking bachelors and bachelorettes, consider a guided hike or ATV adventure. Check out UpaDowna for group activities like hiking, climbing and biking. Looking to head out on your own? Make sure to check out the Trails and Open Spaces Coalition beforehand to scout out the best trails, hiking tips and sustainability practices. Play Dirty ATV Tours and Rockhound ATV rentals are both group-friendly options for those willing to get a little messy! Guides will help you select the perfect routes and lead you through the Pikes Peak backcountry.
Or, grab a seat at the game! The newly opened Weidner Field is the home of the Switchbacks FC and is the perfect spot to grab a beer and cheer on the home team. The Rocky Mountain Vibes also call Colorado Springs their home and play games throughout the summer at UCHealth Park. Both stadiums offer group discounts and packages.
Make Your Reservations
No trip is complete without a full stomach, so make sure these places make your list.
When it’s time to get all dressed up and sit down for an upscale celebratory dinner, check out Peppertree Restaurant, which comes complete with a gorgeous view of the Colorado Springs skyline. Also downtown is Mackenzie’s Chop House, a locally-owned spot with an elegant atmosphere, it’s perfect for the formal occasion. For more fine dining options, check out Carlos’ Bistro or any of the 20 restaurants housed at The Broadmoor.
With the constantly growing brewery scene, Colorado Springs also has a ton of options when it comes to craft beverages! Check out Ivywild School – formerly an elementary school and now a communal space with various restaurants and bars – for a fun afternoon with the squad. Both Colorado Mountain Brewery and Phantom Canyon Brewing carry a host of locally brewed beers as well. And if you’re looking to learn a little while you drink, check out any of the brewery, winery and food tours the Springs has to offer, like Rocky Mountain Food Tours.
Hit the Town
Grab your gals (and guys!) and put on your best dancing shoes for a night out on the town. Whether you’re looking for a relaxing spot to grab a glass of wine or somewhere to dance the night away, there’s somewhere for everyone.
Head to Thunder and Buttons in Old Colorado City for a night of drinks and karaoke. They also regularly host events like open mic comedy nights and trivia. Mother Muffs has a menu full of unique drinks (a coffee cocktail? Yes please!) as well as a full brunch menu for the morning after. Or head downtown and check out ICONS, Colorado Springs’ new LGBTQIA+ piano bar. They specialize in live entertainment and boast a delicious craft cocktail menu.
For a little bit more of a lowkey evening, visit Uva Wine Bar or Distillery 291. Uva is a family-owned business that offers more than 40 wines by the glass. Distillery 291 is an award-winning, small batch whiskey distillery conveniently located near downtown. They offer tours and tastings, as well as bottles for sale!
