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.
Colorado Springs is known for parks, zoos & aquariums, and nature. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, stop by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.

To find other places to visit, where to stay, ratings, and more tourist information, read our Colorado Springs trip itinerary planning website.

Houston to Colorado Springs is an approximately 5.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Houston to Colorado Springs due to the time zone difference. Plan for much colder temperatures traveling from Houston in December, with highs in Colorado Springs at 45°F and lows at 18°F. You will have some time to spend on the 25th (Fri) before leaving for Colorado Springs.
