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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at National Museum of World War II Aviation and Old Colorado City. Get in touch with nature at Red Rock Canyon Open Space and Manitou Springs Incline. Step out of Colorado Springs with an excursion to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide--about 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, look for all kinds of wild species at North Cheyenne Canon Park, and enjoy unforgettable views with a balloon tour.

For where to stay, maps, photos, and tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs trip itinerary builder.
