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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Garden of the Gods. Step off the beaten path and head to Penrose Heritage Museum and Rusty Wallace Racing Experience. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum & Phantom Canyon Road) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Cheyenne Mountain State Park, appreciate the history behind Will Rogers Memorial Shrine of the Sun, stop by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and enjoy some music at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.

For traveler tips, reviews, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Colorado Springs day trip site.
