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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Red Canyon Park, Rainbow Falls, Rocky Mountain Motorcycle Museum, and other attractions. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colorado Springs: Skyline Drive (in Canon City), Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor) and Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek). There's much more to do: meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour, find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, and delve into the distant past at Manitou Cliff Dwellings.
