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 25th (Fri), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: wander the streets of Old Colorado City, then walk around Garden of the Gods, and then take a memorable drive along Pikes Peak - America's Mountain.
