Colorado Springs

— 11 nights
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 out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide), Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Cañon City (The Abbey Events Complex, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). Pack the 27th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, stroll around Garden of the Gods, tour the pleasant surroundings at Manitou Springs Incline, and meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
