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.
Family-friendly places like Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo will thrill your kids. Step out of Colorado Springs with an excursion to Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine in Cripple Creek--about 1h 05 min away. And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.

To find reviews, maps, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 45°F in December, and nighttime lows around 18°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
