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.
Take a break from Colorado Springs with a short trip to Skyline Drive in Canon City, about 1h 20 min away. There's still lots to do: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire the sheer force of Helen Hunt Falls, and admire the masterpieces at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery.

To find traveler tips, ratings, reviews, and more tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs road trip planning app .

In December, daily temperatures in Colorado Springs can reach 45°F, while at night they dip to 18°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
