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.
Let the collections at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and Michael Garman Museum & Gallery capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Climbing Tours and Adventures Out West. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at North Cheyenne Canon Park, hike along Seven Bridges Trail, find something for the whole family at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, and examine the collection at Miramont Castle Museum.

To find traveler tips, maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs trip maker tool.

Des Moines to Colorado Springs is an approximately 5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of bus and train. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 1 hour. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Des Moines in July since evenings lows in Colorado Springs dip to °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) to allow enough time to drive to Woodland Park.
