Situated amid picturesque mountains, streams, and canyons, The Broadmoor is a luxury resort that provides an escape from the ordinary. Founded in 1918 by Spencer Penrose, a prominent businessman and philanthropist, it was originally intended to be a destination that would attract visitors to Colorado Springs and promote tourism in the region. Over the years, The Broadmoor has evolved and expanded, becoming one of the most prestigious resorts in the United States. It is situated on 5,000 acres of lush, landscaped grounds at the base of the Cheyenne Mountain in Colorado Springs.

Colorado Springs is known for its stunning natural beauty, outdoor recreational opportunities, and a variety of cultural attractions.
