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 these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Canon City (Lost Paddle Rafting, Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours, &more) and Cripple Creek (The Brass Ass Casino, Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine, &more). There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, explore the ancient world of Manitou Cliff Dwellings, explore the historical opulence of Glen Eyrie Castle, and see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour.

To see traveler tips, maps, ratings, and more tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip planner.
