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.
Get in touch with nature at The Broadmoor Seven Falls and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Old Colorado City and Penrose Heritage Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colorado Springs: Mueller State Park (in Divide) and Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum (in Florissant). There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, identify plant and animal life at Bear Creek Nature Center, explore the ancient world of Manitou Cliff Dwellings, and learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation.
