What to expect in Colorado Springs

Before you move, read on to familiarize yourself with your new city: 

Take a hike

Take advantage of the great outdoors! Nestled at the base of the foothills of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs offers an abundance of hiking, biking and camping options. Take in some stunning scenery from the waterfalls to the red rocks of the Garden of the Gods. 

Get used to the weather 

Miami is known for its humidity and the heat waves of the long, hot summers. Miami is also known to see extreme weather patterns that bring heavy winds and lots of precipitation in the form of rain — especially during hurricane season. Winters are usually pretty mild during the day and cold at night. But in Colorado Springs, you can expect a bit tamer weather, where things don’t get quite as hot in the summer, and much colder in the winter. One main thing you need to prepare for when you move to Colorado Springs: get ready for snow. The city averages about 61 inches of snow a year and temps in Colorado Springs are significantly colder than in Miami, especially in January, when lows frequently dip into the teens. You’ll still get plenty of sun, which allows you to get out and explore pretty much any time of the year. 

Prepare for the elevation change

Another factor to consider in a move to Colorado Springs is the elevation change. The city has is located in the high desert with an elevation of about 6,000 feet. It’s important to take that elevation into consideration and let your body adjust to your new climate — especially if you have a workout routine. 

Get to know the economy

Miami has a robust economy with a lot of different industries offering jobs to local residents. And while tourism, trade, aviation, financial services and agriculture dominate the economy in Miami, high technology and jobs in government contracting and federal defense occupy the job market in Colorado Springs. Tourism jobs also have their place in Colorado Springs, as do jobs in ministry, microbreweries and retail and public services.
