From the unexpected suburban location of Palmer Park, you get wide-angle views of the city and Pikes Peak and the entire Front Range. Perfect for sunset. Try the Grandview Overlook or follow the Palmer Point Trail sweeping westward views.
11. Skate in the Park
Glide hand in hand around the downtown Skate in the Park rink beneath the sparkling city lights. Fun for lighthearted dates and a good excuse to cozy up, you know, for extra warmth. You’ve got plenty of downtown hot spots nearby for dinner or drinks after your skate session.
10. Paint Mines
It’s an otherworldly and exotic scene, especially when that Golden Hour light plays with the geologic color palette. There’s no wonder why the Paint Mines Interpretative Park is a favorite for couple’s photo shoots.
9. Cheyenne Mountain Zoo
Get a little wild at an event like Moonlight on the Mountain. You’ll enjoy food and drinks and live music. And you definitely want to snuggle up on the Sky Ride and savor the city light views below from the high perch of the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
8. Kinship Landing
We love the Colorado-chic vibes of this entire new, boutique hotel, but its those enveloping soaking tubs perched above downtown that really standout in the Kinship Landing suites. Slip into relaxation before or after your night on the town.
7. Pikes Peak
Remember that scene in Titanic? You can do that on the summit of Pikes Peak. Change it up to “I’m on top of the world!” And feel breathless, literally, as you leave the rest of the world below.
6. Seven Falls
The canyon views and cascading water are stunning. And the glowing lights at night add an otherworldly charm to Seven Falls. Doesn’t hurt that you can dine and drink at The Broadmoor’s 1858 at the base of the falls.
5. SunWater Spa
Ah, those wonderful soaking natural springwater tubs perched on the hillside above Manitou. Hot water. Big mountain views. Add a couple’s massage and you’ll achieve true bliss at SunWater Spa.
4. Overhead in a Hot Air Balloon
Float away together high overhead with a hot air balloon ride with Adventures Out West or Rainbow Ryders. Check it off your bucket list together. Drink a champagne toast. And, yes, they’ll help you pull off a surprise proposal.
3. The Broadmoor
The luxury. The relaxing mountain resort setting. Walk around the lake among the twinkling lights. Come for the top-level dining or drinks on date night. Get a room and stay the weekend at the Broadmoor. There are so many ways to tap into romance at this five-star gem.
2. Garden of the Gods Resort & Club
Slip into the heated year-round infinity pool here and enjoy arguably the best view in the city. But you have to be a member or overnight guest at the Garden of the Gods Resort and Club, so you might as well make it a full getaway.
1. Kissing Camels
What better place to steal a kiss than beneath the famous Kissing Camels in Garden of the Gods? Dodge the crowds on a weekday. Enjoy extra ambiance at sunset, or stroll after dark beneath the stars and the spotlit rock formation.
