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 hidden gems such as Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Palmer Park. Take a break from the city and head to Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Bear Creek Nature Center. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey (in Canon City), Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum & Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum) and Mueller State Park (in Divide). And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, take an in-depth tour of ANA Money Museum, and examine the collection at Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center.
