The city of Colorado Springs is a widely spread city with lots of room to roam and many different things to do and see. We want to make sure you can explore this city that was named as the #1 best big city in Money Magazine's 2006 "Best Places to Live" list, so we offer some of our best portable oxygen concentrators for rent.
Once you arrive in Colorado Springs, you will notice the beautiful mountain landscape in the background, and the clean, dry air. This city sits over one mile above sea level, at 6,035 feet, but don't worry about your oxygen concentrator not being able to function because all of our portable rentals have a maximum operational altitude of at least 10,000 feet. If you decide to go on a hike through the nearby mountain trails of "Pike's Peak," you will still be getting the oxygen content and purity you would be getting in lower altitudes.
If you're traveling with your family, there are many entertaining things to do in Colorado Springs while using an oxygen concentrator, and many of them are outdoor attractions. "The Garden of the Gods" is one of the most popular attractions here, and consists of beautiful standing sandstone formations. Get a feel of what it was like in the old west by taking a tour through "Old Colorado City". Cheyenne Mountain Zoo is another place to take the whole family for a good time. Make sure you have an extra, fully-charged battery or battery pack, so you have have plenty of run-time until you go back to your hotel.
For a night out and a chance to meet some of the locals, The Blue Star offers everything from a casual drink at the bar, to a pleasant dining experience, with food and good wine. Bierwerks Brewery is the local microbrewery, which is a great place to hang out, try some great beer and catch some live music. Flatiron's American Bar and Grill is like any other sports bar, only with even better food and a wide selection of drinks. With the carry bag or cart that comes with your oxygen concentrator, you'll be able to navigate yourself from one cool spot to the next easily.
Colorado Springs is a great place to add to your itinerary if you haven't already planned to go. If you are someone who likes an excellent adventure mixed with natural beauty and a nearby urban environment, we want to help meet your oxygen needs with a secure portable concentrator rental, so you don't have to worry about it.
Talk to one of our Oxygen Specialists about your travel plans: where you are coming from, what you want to do while you're in Colorado Springs. We will assist in helping you choose the best oxygen concentrator that will best accommodate your oxygen needs, as well as your travel needs.
You'll want to do this at least a few weeks before your flight, to allow our UPS delivery of your concentrator to your door, and to notify your airline that you will be bringing along your FAA approved portable oxygen concentrator. You will also most likely need a note from your doctor to show the airline before you board your plane.
