If you have orders to Colorado, you are fortunate!
Colorado, specifically Colorado Springs, is a beautiful area offering residents a variety of activities. The natural scenery alone is enough to draw you to the area. Colorado Springs is on the edge of the Rocky Mountains, which creates a beautiful background for your hikes. But there’s more to the city than beautiful scenery; there’s also an incredible culture. The historical presence, the museums, Pikes Peak, the Garden of the Gods, the aspen trees, and places like the zoo all make Colorado Springs a special place to be.
But it’s not the scenery that pulls service members to Colorado Springs; it’s the many military installations located in the area. The United States Air Force Academy, Peterson AFB, and Fort Carson are all located within just 30 miles of each other.
