The best of what Colorado Springs offers
Colorado Springs is a fantastic city in Colorado and offers so many places to go and things to do for residents and tourists. This article will point out the best things that Colorado Springs has to offer and will give locations, maps, and descriptions of where to go and experience the best of what this city has to offer. Due to the fact that there are so many topics and places to go, this article will just point out a few things.
The best food
Best Chinese Food: My vote goes to Bamboo Court located off of Centennial Blvd and Garden of the Gods road. If you want excellent Chinese food in a very authentic setting with great service this is the restaurant to go. Their food is delicious and well cooked with generous portions. The servers are all super friendly and really enjoy their job. They are happy to answer any questions and they make you feel right at home. I love the authentic Chinese look of the restaurant with all the lamps and paintings, even the seating is unique which offers privacy and style.
Best Mexican Food: I have tried a number of Mexican restaurants in Colora
Best Italian Food: By far the best Italian Food I have experienced in Colorado Springs is La Bella Vita located right of the corner of I-25 and Garden of the Gods road on Northpark Dr. The food here is absolutely amazing for not being located in Italy! It is well portioned, very tasty, and is made exactly as you want it. The restaurant is very authentic and attractive and the staff is super friendly and well informed of the menu and surrounding area! I highly recommend trying this place out if you are looking for some good authentic Italian.
The best places to take care of business
Best place to g
Best place to get your dry cleaning: Out of the options I have experienced I can safely say that Blue Star Cleaners located on North Academy Blvd is the best I've seen. It is run by a very enthusiastic nice couple and they do an excellent job with their work. Quality cleaning and friendly service go a long way and this place strives to achieve both.
Best place to find entertainment
Best place to catch a movie: Everyone loves movies, but which theater is best? My vote goes to Cinemark Carefree Circle Theater located on Powers Blvd. This theater has IMAX, 3D, and regular movies pl
Best place to go on a hike: Hiking is abundant in Colorado and all of the best spots are located outside of the city, but if you are looking for a hike and want to stay in Colorado Springs the best place I've found is called Red Rocks Canyon. Rather than explain where it is here's a map showing it's location.
This is a really nice hike. It's very pretty and not extremely difficult. But it is fun and will offer you a great hike while still staying within the city limits. I highly recommend it and encourage you to give it a shot!
Best place to shop: This one is really easy. While Colorado Springs does have strip malls and two big malls, the best place to shop is actually called Old Colorado City located just off of Cimarron St / US24. This is a quaint area of town and has a lot of shops for viewing pleasure. There are so many things from antique shops and gift shops, to restaurants and hotels to stay at. This is a perfect place to spend a nice spring or summer day and take a stroll through a quaint part of town and enjoy some good food and shopping. I recommend this place to check out first.
