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.
Bring the kids along to Garden of the Gods and North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop. Explore hidden gems such as Battlefield Colorado and Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Cripple Creek (Cripple Creek District Museum & Old Homestead House Museum), Divide (Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center & Mueller State Park) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's much more to do: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, stroll around Fox Run Regional Park, look for all kinds of wild species at North Cheyenne Canon Park, and trek along Palmer Park.
