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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Manitou Cliff Dwellings and Miramont Castle Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Pike's Peak - America's Mountain and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Old Homestead House Museum (in Cripple Creek), Red Rocks Group Campground (in Woodland Park) and Skyline Drive (in Canon City). There's much more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, get your game on at Battlefield Colorado, trek along Fountain Creek Nature Center, and explore the historical opulence of Glen Eyrie Castle.
