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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours, Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument, Helen Hunt Falls, and other attractions. Family-friendly places like Garden of the Gods and River Rafting & Tubing will thrill your kids. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Canon City (Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center & Skyline Drive). And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, deepen your understanding at United States Air Force Academy, look for gifts at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.

To see traveler tips, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, go to the Colorado Springs sightseeing planner.
