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.
Get outdoors at River Rafting & Tubing and Skyline Drive. Kids will enjoy Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Change things up with a short trip to The Abbey Events Complex in Canon City (about 1h 15 min away). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Colorado City, get in on the family fun at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, get engrossed in the history at Manitou Cliff Dwellings, and look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center.

For traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Colorado Springs trip itinerary maker website.

Omaha to Colorado Springs is an approximately 6- hour combination of bus, flight, and shuttle. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Omaha to Colorado Springs. Traveling from Omaha in June, plan for little chillier nights in Colorado Springs, with lows around 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Wed) early enough to go by car to Woodland Park.
