You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and Penrose Heritage Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Palmer Park and Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Next up on the itinerary: get outside with Adventures Out West, hike along Seven Bridges Trail, see the interesting displays at ANA Money Museum, and explore the world behind art at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery.
