Become a Local Guide

We think the easiest way to navigate a city is by going places recommended by friends. MyCo is a collaborative local guide that accepts submissions from anyone tagging #my_cosprings. We send emails about once a month and they come directly from our founder, Lauren Carlson. In our emails, we curate a list of places we are looking to feature and share with you a scavenger hunt list to inspire your next adventure. Our hope is that these emails inspire you to go out and discover new places and in return, you help us feature them.

Lauren Carlson



Lauren is the founder of My Colorado Springs and Best Dance Tutorials. Her background includes work in writing, editing, social media marketing, and dance. She loves all things local- eating local, shopping local, and exploring the local trails. Her passion is to create experiences for people through hosting parties, building communities, and furthering the art of online storytelling. 

Delaney Kochan



Delaney is a lyric essayist and poet who does freelance work and content curation/creation in addition to her day-job telling stories of missionaries in Europe. She thinks the best things in life are mountains, art, and people doing life together - this is why she loves being part of the My Colorado Springs team! Quippy poems, cut flowers, and cups of tea are her other favorites (now you know how to get on her good side). 

Arianna Danielson
