2021 Spring Break Activities - Visit Colorado Springs

Top Spring Break Activities

Heading out of town for spring break? Outdoor adventure is waiting for you (and the kids) in Colorado Springs.


Spring Break in Colorado Springs is the perfect family-friendly vacation. Head out on a road trip to spend a week of fun exploring camps offered by America's mountain zoo, indoor climbing adventures, space exploration experiences, and more.

Struggling to come up with ideas for how to spend your spring break without breaking the bank? There are plenty of free and affordable options in the Pikes Peak Region. Here are our top recommendations to get your planning started.

  • Get Outdoors - Nothing says “free” like the freedom found in the great outdoors. Other than renting some gear or booking a tour if needed, outdoor recreation comes at no cost. 
  • Bunk Up Somewhere Cozy - Looking to save some cash? Bunk rooms at Kinship Landing and RV sites at Colorado Springs KOA are a great option.
  • Learn Something New - The kids may be out of school for the week, but the learning doesn’t have to stop. Colorado Springs has plenty of free and affordable museums the whole family will enjoy exploring. 

Please note, due to COVID-19 and safety concerns, some events and activities may be canceled or postponed. Please be sure to check with individual activity organizers for the most up-to-date information.
