Summer Fun under the Colorado Sun Begins at Cheyenne Mountain Resort
Passport to Summer boasts free and moderately priced experiences designed to entertain and save
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. ─ May 5, 2017 ─ It’s vacation season. Time to heed Mother Nature’s call and head outdoors to create sun-kissed memories with loved ones. For families looking for a beach meets mountain getaway, the AAA Four Diamond Cheyenne Mountain Resort is once again offering its signature Passport to Summer program. Pocketbook-tested, family-approved, the summer package features a medley of interactive explorations, savings and unique experiences on top of an expansive lineup of award-winning resort amenities and services. Passport to Summer is available Memorial Day to Labor Day with rates starting at $219 per night.
“Planning a summer vacation can be quite the undertaking,” said Rachel Horgan, marketing manager at Cheyenne Mountain Resort. “We purposely designed our on-property experiences to minimize, if not completely, shoulder this task and give our families everything they need to make their vacation nothing short of epic.”
Set on 217 acres, Cheyenne Mountain Resort rolls out the quintessential Colorado carpet with educational summer adventures; hands-on Cheyenne Mountain Zoo animal interactions; private lake aquatic excursions; indulgent spa and wellness pampering; delectable fare; tasty signature craft beers and beverages; and distinctive social affairs bundled into one epic summer experience.
The Passport to Summer package includes:
- A souvenir backpack chock full of summertime gear including sunglasses, water bottle, sunblock, chapstick, beach ball, and pool toy. Additional backpacks can be purchased for $25.
- Personalized passport booklet with your child’s photo, for them to take around property and get stamped.
- Departure gift for your child upon completion of their summer passport activities.
- Discount coupons to Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
Parents can also take advantage of the resort’s new kid dining programs. Starting Memorial Day weekend, the Kids Eat Free program will feed more kids as the current six-year-old age limit is boosted to 10. For pre-teens and teens, the resort cooked up GRUBClub, an all-day dining pass that includes three square meals, a treat and unlimited beverages. Starting at $35 per day, GRUBClub can be added to any reservation and offers tiered savings for families with two or more kids.
Available all summer, families can also enjoy a lineup of fun experiences to make their stay even more exciting, such as:
Tunes on the Terrace - Thursdays, 6:00 - 8:00 PM | Join us on Thursday evenings this summer at the Pineview Grille for live music on the terrace. Sit back, relax and enjoy our casual gourmet fare or a handcrafted cocktail as you listen to our favorite local performers.
