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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Will Rogers Memorial Shrine of the Sun as well as Penrose Heritage Museum. Discover out-of-the-way places like Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Climbing Tours. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Peterson Air & Space Museum and Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site.

Next up on the itinerary: look for all kinds of wild species at North Cheyenne Canon Park, examine the collection at Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, stroll through Palmer Park, and get your game on at Battlefield Colorado.
