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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Canon City (Skyline Drive & The Abbey Events Complex), Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide). There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls.

To see reviews, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs day trip planning tool .

In December, daily temperatures in Colorado Springs can reach 45°F, while at night they dip to 18°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
