Colorado Springs

— 2 nights
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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like River Rafting & Tubing and United States Air Force Academy. Venture out of the city with trips to Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor) and Skyline Drive (in Cañon City). There's lots more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, take a stroll through Old Colorado City, admire the masterpieces at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, and meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

Plan my Colorado Springs trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.
