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 Old Homestead House Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Mueller State Park (in Divide), Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum (in Cripple Creek) and Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant). The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, see the interesting displays at ANA Money Museum, hike along Seven Bridges Trail, and kick back and relax at Memorial Park.
