As we inch closer to wintertime and temps drop down, it’s imperative to strap on your tractioned snow boots and still support our local food and beverage establishments. To help you stay in the know, Visit Colorado Springs launches a list of outdoor dining and heated patio options for the Pikes Peak Region, with daily updates.

VCOS encourages patrons to “become a local business hero” by participating in the ongoing community support campaigns including VCOS’s Peak of Safety Pledge, SBDC’s Bundle Up for Small Business, the City of COS’s Small Acts and Downtown Partnership’s Shop Small Pledge.
