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 a short trip to Mueller State Park in Divide (about 42 minutes away). The adventure continues: stroll around Garden of the Gods, find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and contemplate the waterfront views at Manitou Springs Incline.

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip maker website.

Climate Capital of Colorado

Part of Colorado's Royal Gorge Region, Cañon City straddles the Arkansas River.
On the 14th (Wed), hike along Tunnel Drive, take a memorable drive along Skyline Drive, and then examine the collection at Museum of Colorado Prisons. Here are some ideas for day two: do a tasting at The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey, then admire the landmark architecture of The Abbey Events Complex, then relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and finally stop by The Gold Mine Rock Shop.

For photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Canon City trip builder site.

Traveling by car from Colorado Springs to Canon City takes an hour. Alternatively, you can take a bus. Plan for a bit warmer nights when traveling from Colorado Springs in October since evenings lows in Canon City dip to 45°F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive back home.
