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.
You've now added Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center to your itinerary. Escape the urban bustle at Tunnel Drive and Fountain Creek Nature Center. Do some cultural sightseeing at Western Museum of Mining and Industry and Old Colorado City. Go for a jaunt from Colorado Springs to Canon City to see Garden Park Fossil Area about 1h 5 min away. There's much more to do: hike along Seven Bridges Trail, look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and get curious at Peterson Air & Space Museum.

To see where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs road trip website.
