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.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Canon City (The Gold Mine Rock Shop, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

For photos, other places to visit, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs trip itinerary builder site.

San Bernardino to Colorado Springs is an approximately 15.5- hour car ride. Traveling from San Bernardino to Colorado Springs, you'll lose 1 hour due to the time zone difference.

Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sun) early enough to drive to Manitou Springs.
