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.
Step out of the city life by going to Pike's Peak - America's Mountain and North Cheyenne Canon Park. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Woodland Park (Red Rocks Group Campground & Shining Mountain Golf Course), Monument Rock Trail (in Monument) and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide). There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Colorado City.
