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.
Kick off your visit on the 10th (Fri): learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, then stroll around Garden of the Gods, and then explore the historical opulence of Glen Eyrie Castle. Keep things going the next day: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, then examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum, then explore the world behind art at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, and finally deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy.
