Where do you go in Colorado Springs when the weather isn’t so perfect?  I have rounded up a few of the best spots to go when Colorado summer isn’t giving us the perfect weather to play outside.  All of these suggestions will have the cost and the age(s) allowed, but on a few of the suggestions you will see “recommended age”.  This is my own recommendation based on my own or other’s experiences.
