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 The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure and Red Rock Canyon Open Space. You'll explore and learn at Penrose Heritage Museum and Michael Garman Museum & Gallery. There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and see the interesting displays at Miramont Castle Museum.

To plan Colorado Springs vacation without wasting time, ask Inspirock to design an itinerary.
