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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Penrose Heritage Museum and Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center. Family-friendly places like Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo will thrill your kids. Venture out of the city with trips to Cripple Creek (Cripple Creek District Museum & Old Homestead House Museum), Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor) and Divide (Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center & Mueller State Park). Next up on the itinerary: have some family-friendly fun at Battlefield Colorado, get engrossed in the history at ANA Money Museum, look for gifts at Focus on the Family Bookstore, and trek along Palmer Park.
