Hello from 2 Moms in Colorado Springs!


We are two moms living in Colorado Springs with a newborn, 2 cats and blue heeler. We love road trips, hiking and local food. Always open to recommendations as we seek to travel more as a family. Gay friendly locations desired. We enjoy National Parks and scenic open spaces. Looking forward to hearing recommendations!

Hello @Rpuertos - Welcome to you and your family to this community!

It's so great to hear you all are passionate about road trips, hiking and local food. We had a fun post recently on favorite camping recipes that you might like to add to or get inspiration for new dishes from!

Also, a big congratulations on your newborn! The Outside with Kids board is a good place to ask any questions that come up as your family continues traveling and exploring with a new little one along for the ride. 

For travel recommendations, how far are y'all looking to go from Colorado Springs? We have a lot of parents here in the community that will hopefully be able to weigh in with recommendations!

Thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself (and share that incredible photo of your pup!). We're glad to have you here!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

@Rpuertos welcome to the co-op's online community - and Happy Pride! If you're ready to drive north and west, we have a bunch of gay-friendly places (neighborhoods, restaurants, etc.) out here in the Puget Sound, not to mention absolutely incredible outdoor opportunities with multiple sets of mountains, multiple bodies of water, lots of trees, and our amazing Seattle Flagship REI store!
