Sometimes it’s just too cold to enjoy the beautiful outdoors of Colorado Springs. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite indoor activities in Colorado Springs.

With 300+ days of sunshine a year and mild seasons, Colorado is a dream for outdoor living. However, it’s good to have a back-up plan for rainy and snowy days. When weather doesn’t permit hiking, biking, or water activities, here’s a list of our favorite indoor activities.

Indoor Playgrounds
