What Bert Has To Say About Colorado Springs Metro Area


“The Springs,” once known as a resort city, has a strong military presence and a growing commercial economy led by varying components of the high-tech industry. Several military installations, including the U.S. Air Force Academy and the Space Command are located within or near the city. The surrounding prairie provides grazing land for cattle and sheep. Summer weather is notably pleasant and dry, with only 15 days above 90 degrees. The Rockies to the west and Denver to the north provide a broad range of outdoor recreation and other entertainment.
