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.
On the 2nd (Tue), get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, then brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and then take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space. Here are some ideas for day two: deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, then stroll around Garden of the Gods, and then take a stroll through Old Colorado City.
