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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Canon City (Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours, River Rafting & Tubing, &more), Denver (Denver Zoo & Denver Botanic Gardens) and Mission Escapes Denver (in Aurora). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, get to know the fascinating history of Old Colorado City, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

To find more things to do, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip builder.

The Route module can help you plan travel from Gastonia to Colorado Springs. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Gastonia in September since evenings lows in Colorado Springs dip to 51°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 8th (Tue) to allow enough time to travel back home.
