A family of five, nine years into the Colorado life, making their way in the Briargate area. Their recommendations are all super family friendly.
Two Breakfast/Brunch Rec's
We really love The Pantry up in Green Mountain Falls, our second choice would be The Omelette Parlor.
Three Activities for Families
Definitely have to visit/experience Garden of the Gods. It’s so beautiful and we still can’t believe it’s in our backyard.
Also Manitou Springs...we love going to the restaurants here and and the Penny Arcade with the boys.
The Cog Rail ride to the top of Pikes Peak is also a great outing for families and the view is amazing.
Why did you choose the area in which you live?
We moved to Briargate 4 years ago simply to be close to our boys schools and to work. We love not having a long commute but sometimes wish we were closer to the culture and community of downtown Colorado Springs.
Favorite Date Night Spots
Shugas: love the food, drinks and atmosphere!
Thai Mint: Nothing fancy....we just love Thai food.
Salsa Brava: Close to home and good Mexican food.
Adventures Outside of Colorado Springs
We had a blast tubing and enjoying the resort at Pagosa Hot Springs last summer.
