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 day by day itinerary now includes Pulpit Rock Park as well as Olympic Training Center. Bring the kids along to Garden of the Gods and Red Rock Canyon Open Space. When in Colorado Springs, make a side trip to see Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide, approximately Divide away. There's still lots to do: expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and contemplate the waterfront views at Manitou Springs Incline.
