It is hard to believe November is half over and Thanksgiving barely a week away. Yep, like it or not, the summer days of 2018 are well behind us as we embrace Thanksgiving, Christmas, cozy sweaters, and warm drinks.  For some it's easy to get excited... and for others, well, a good attitude goes a long way.

And as cold as the weather feels to heat-lovers, our hearts may be warmed by friends and relatives visiting the area this season. Let's admit with humility and honesty: Colorado is a great place to visit. And it's even better when someone has taken the time to plan activities to be enjoyed together. So regardless of your feelings about the seasonal changes, we've got a suggestion. 

Check out "The Best Things to do in Colorado Springs" website. It is a great resource for vacation planning in the area. In one place, you'll find all you need to know about many popular destination spots, side trips, kid-friendly attractions, museums, hidden gems, and fun and games in the Pikes Peak Region. If desired, it will also help plan and schedule your entire itinerary. 

*Personal recommendation from our team: The Penrose Heritage Museum is a great place to get started. It showcases the life and legacy of entrepreneur and philanthropist Spencer Penrose and his wife Julie. From the carriage used in the 1841 Presidential Inauguration to Robby Unser's open wheel Chevy, The Penrose Heritage Museum is an ideal place to take anyone who loves American history or cars. Admission is free. If you go, let us know what you think!

We at the Steel Team are gearing up for time together and with our friends and family too. We have so much to be thankful for. If we can be of help as you come visit the area or host others who are coming, don't hesitate to let us know. And if you plan to make Colorado Springs your home one day, we'd love to show you around!
