Colorado Springs

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.
Here are some ideas for day two: admire the landmark architecture of The Abbey Events Complex, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and then cruise along Skyline Drive.

For maps, photos, traveler tips, and tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs trip planner.

Wichita Falls to Colorado Springs is an approximately 7.5-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Traveling from Wichita Falls to Colorado Springs, you'll gain 1 hour due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Wichita Falls in August, with highs in Colorado Springs at °F and lows at °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Fri) to allow enough time to drive to Manitou Springs.
