The air is dry up here, influenced by the adiabatic winds descending off the range and the high plains. Temperature wise, it doesn't get too much hotter than 80°F in the summer. But it can get pretty icy in the winter, with temps falling to about 17°F in January and February. The record low was -27°F.

Dining in Colorado Springs
Make sure to bring your appetite when you come to Colorado Springs. For some reason, between the air, the altitude and the wide open spaces, it stirs the appetite. But that appetite will not be left unattended for long, because wherever you go in “The Springs”, there is always good food nearby. Here are just a few to get you started.
- Blue Star.: The folks who dine here rave about the food. It is an amazing place to hang out or have an event. It has a creative menu, with tastes that are not easily replicated by other food establishments. The cocktails, the entrees and the appetizers set this place apart from anything else you have ever tried, This place should be the first place you visit when you get to your Colorado Springs temporary housing.
- The Airplane Restaurant: Part of this restaurant sits in the cabin of a retired US Air Force KC-97 tanker. The restaurant seats about 250 people and only 50 of those are in the actual aircraft. It’s a lot of fun to board an aircraft and to be able to dine in it. There is even a bar on board. The menu is pretty amazing too. It consists of Pastas and Salads as well as really great starters. As you would expect the menu carries an aircraft theme, like the Air Tower Nachos, the Barrel Rolls and the Runway Crispy Chicken Strips.
- Il-Vicino Wood Oven Pizza: There are two locations in town; they're both good although my favorite is the one Downtown on South Tejon. The other one is on North Nevada Ave. in University Village. Eating the pizzas here is an earth shattering experience. The Pepperoni pizza is not just a simple pizza here. There is never enough! The Da Vinci Pizza is another brilliant work of culinary art as is the Testarossa pizza.
- Sushi Ring at Southern Cross Shopping Center: Not every place that claims to serve sushi deserves a visit. But this place certainly does. It is one of the better sushi places in Colorado Springs. Try the Shrimp Tempura dinner or the 12-piece sashimi plate. They also have an all-you-can eat sushi menu. The Maguro Tataki is one of the best here as well as the Saba and the Ikura. If you like the cooked version, try the Army Ring. It is deep fried tempura shrimp with cream cheese, crab and avocado. Once you get familiar with this place, you will find it’s a great place to entertain business associates for a casual meal.
- India Palace: When you are in the mood for Indian food, it is not the spice that beckons, it is the blend. The balance of the pungent with the sweet, the tart with the heat and the salt with the bitter. Not many restaurateurs can claim knowledge of this culinary balance, and even less can accomplish it. But here, the food is all about the authenticity of the spice and the balance that is created. Try the Clay Oven Mixed Grill. It is simply divine.
