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 inner history buff will appreciate Peterson Air & Space Museum and Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site. Explore hidden gems such as Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and ANA Money Museum. Go for a jaunt from Colorado Springs to Cripple Creek to see Old Homestead House Museum about 1h 05 min away. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, admire the masterpieces at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, get engrossed in the history at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum, and hike along Palmer Park.

For maps, other places to visit, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs road trip planning tool .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 45°F, and evening lows to 18°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
