Colorado Springs

— 3 nights
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.
You've now added Rocky Mountain Food Tours to your itinerary. Museum-lovers will get to explore ANA Money Museum and Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum. Visit Old Homestead House Museum and Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Divide (Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center & Horsethief Falls) and Cripple Creek District Museum (in Cripple Creek). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, identify plant and animal life at Bear Creek Nature Center, trek along Palmer Park, and learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation.
