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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant), Canon City (The Abbey Events Complex, River Rafting & Tubing, &more) and Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum, Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine, &more). There's lots more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Colorado City, and see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Colorado Springs trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.
