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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center and Peterson Air & Space Museum. Kids will appreciate attractions like Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College and Miramont Castle Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum & Cripple Creek District Museum), Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide) and Canon City (The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey & Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience). And it doesn't end there: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, take an in-depth tour of Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum, shop like a local with Commonwheel Artists Co-op, and look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center.

To see ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs road trip planning site.

Expect a daytime high around 45°F in December, and nighttime lows around 18°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
