Colorado Springs

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.
Change things up with a short trip to River Rafting & Tubing in Cañon City (about 1h 15 min away). There's lots more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, visit Old Colorado City, explore the world behind art at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, and expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy.
