Stunning Garden of the Gods Park scenery, blue skies and the glory of Pikes Peak-America’s Mountain have attracted visitors to Colorado Springs for more than a century.
You've now added Garden of the Gods to your itinerary. Explore hidden gems such as Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and North Cheyenne Canon Park. Penrose Heritage Museum and Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant), Mueller State Park (in Divide) and Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum & Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum). There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, walk around Memorial Park, trek along Palmer Park, and examine the collection at Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center.
