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 Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide), Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Skyline Drive (in Canon City). There's much more to do: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, trot along with a tour on horseback, explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and get to know the fascinating history of Old Colorado City.

To see more things to do, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs road trip site.

Middle River to Colorado Springs is an approximately 10.5-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time to Mountain Standard Time, which is usually a -2 hour difference. Traveling from Middle River in October, plan for little chillier nights in Colorado Springs, with lows around °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
