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.
Take a break from the city and head to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Climbing Tours and Tunnel Drive. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey (in Canon City), Mueller State Park (in Divide) and Cripple Creek (Phantom Canyon Road & Old Homestead House Museum). The adventure continues: stroll around North Cheyenne Canon Park, take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Memorial Park, and have some family-friendly fun at Battlefield Colorado.

To find where to stay, more things to do, reviews, and more tourist information, go to the Colorado Springs road trip website.
