Visiting Southern Colorado

Colorado Springs is a great place to live and work – it’s no wonder we hang our hats in the shadow of Pikes Peak. Over the years we have found many of our client’s vacation in the area and we are always asked for recommendations. We thought it might be fun to compile a list of some of our favorites for our friends who are visiting the area.

Dining/Drinks

Looking for something healthy while absorbing the beautiful views of Manitou Springs? Visit Adam’s Mountain Café. If you venture out for breakfast, try the Orange Almond French Toast! http://www.adamsmountain.com
