Visit Colorado Springs- Garden of The Gods Resort and Club
If you are planning a family trip this fall or winter season, there is nothing better than visiting Colorado. At only one hour south from the Denver airport is Colorado Springs, a beautiful natural landscape that is over 1 mile (1.6 km) above sea level.
One of the most famous AAA Four Diamond resort in the United States is located in Colorado Spring and is called Garden of The Gods Resort and Club. It is the premier retreat in the Rocky Mountain West that offers a world-class resort and wellness experience. Set among expansive vistas of the snow-capped Pikes Peak and awe-inspiring National Natural Landmark of the same name, Garden of the Gods Resort and Club boasts a legendary history, having played host to some of America’s most beloved characters such as Walt Disney, Gene Autry and John Wayne.
This past June 14th they celebrated their 70th anniversary.
Debuting in the mid-20th century, Texan tastemakers Al and Margaret Hill dreamt of sharing this majestic view of Garden of the Gods’ iconic red rock formations with others and created what is now the nationally renowned Garden of the Gods Resort and Club.
The Hills purchased the property in 1949, and shortly thereafter, built a private club, luxury resort and residential community that showcased man-made elegance within an unparalleled natural setting.
In 2007, Sunrise Company purchased the property from Hill Development and the Hill family prior to local ownership returning in 2013 when business leaders and longtime Garden of the Gods Club members Brenda Smith, an accounting executive, and healthcare executive Judy Mackey, acquired the resort and renamed it Garden of the Gods Resort and Club. It is through their vision that STRATA Integrated Wellness and Spa was created, leading to the resort’s international recognition as a destination for relaxation, discovery and concierge medicine.
Here, a team of over thirty acclaimed, board-certified physicians and award-winning therapists across more than forty disciplines, integrate the best of Western and Eastern medical science with nutrition, fitness, meditation and mindfulness coaching to provide guests with a fresh perspective, greater level of whole person wellness and a renewed sense of possibility.
