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.
Family-friendly places like Garden of the Gods and Battlefield Colorado will thrill your kids. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Canon City (Skyline Drive, The Abbey Events Complex, & more) and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide). There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, get in on the family fun at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, and examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum.

In December, daily temperatures in Colorado Springs can reach 45°F, while at night they dip to 18°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 2nd (Thu) so you can travel back home.
