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 day-by-day itinerary now includes Room Escape Games, Cosmo's Magic Theater and Horseback Riding Tours. Attractions like Garden of the Gods and United States Air Force Academy make great kid-friendly stops.

There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, examine the collection at Miramont Castle Museum, stop by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, and get in on the family fun at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.
