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.
Old Homestead House Museum and Miramont Castle Museum will appeal to history buffs. Attractions like Peterson Air & Space Museum and Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Cripple Creek District Museum (in Cripple Creek), Canon City (The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey & Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience) and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, contemplate the long history of Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, admire the masterpieces at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, and see a show at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.
