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. Popular historic sites such as Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site and Old Homestead House Museum are in your itinerary. Step out of the city life by going to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Palmer Park. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Horsethief Falls (in Divide) and Cripple Creek District Museum (in Cripple Creek). There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, get engrossed in the history at ANA Money Museum, and look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center.
