One of the best parts of moving to a new location is being able to explore that area for the first time. And there are many things to do in Colorado Springs! Aside from the typical museums, amusement parks, and recreational locations, just about every city throughout the United States has something unique that both residents and visitors enjoy experiencing.
If you are considering moving to Colorado Springs or you are a home seller looking to attract buyers to your home in the area, be sure to check out the following unusual things to do in Colorado Springs. They are sure to make your decision easier!
1. Garden of the Gods
Garden of the Gods is a location in Colorado Springs where you can be fully immersed in the impressive red rock formations that Colorado is known for. However, in this attraction, you will find yourself among the most beautiful and imposing stratified stone towers made of sedimentary deposits of sandstone and limestone. These deposits were stacked and slanted horizontally and vertically by ancient tectonic upheaval. The whole family will stand in awe as you wander through this amazing park.
2. Cheyenne Mountain Nuclear Bunker
If you have ever wanted to explore a former military bunker that was once the headquarters of NORAD and controlled air defense programs during the Cold War, the Cheyenne Mountain Nuclear Bunker is the place for you. If you have never heard of it, you may have actually seen it on the big screen in such films as Independence Day and Wargames, or on the small screen as the command center on Stargate SG-1. While you can’t tour the facility because it is still a classified backup site for NORAD, you can see it from the road and the entrance is well-lit during the evening.
3. Colorado’s Airplane Restaurant
Are you and your family into having unique dining experiences? If so, be sure to check out the Airplane Restaurant in Colorado Springs. It is an intact Boeing KC-97 tanker that was once used for refueling missions in Europe. Be sure to make reservations for this restaurant, and don’t forget to grab a seat in the cockpit to imagine what it would have been like to actually fly this massive aircraft!
4. Novis Mortem Collective
For those looking to do a bit of shopping for items you just can’t find in big box stores, the Novis Mortem Collective is the place to see. It has a wide variety of handmade jewelry (including coffin-shaped necklaces and earrings) as well as pinned insects that you would likely never see in the wild. You can also pick up one of their primary attractions – a glass dome art piece. Each is hand-crafted and designed by the shop’s owner and decorated individually. Your Christmas shopping will be truly special this year when you purchase gifts from the Collective.
