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.
Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Pikes Peak Historical Society Museum (in Florissant), Skyline Drive (in Canon City) and Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum & Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of World War II Aviation, examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum, have some family-friendly fun at Battlefield Colorado, and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.

For where to stay, ratings, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs online attractions planner.
