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.
Your day by day itinerary now includes The Broadmoor Seven Falls as well as Battlefield Colorado. Attractions like Garden of the Gods and National Museum of World War II Aviation make great kid-friendly stops. Step out of Colorado Springs with an excursion to Skyline Drive in Cañon City--about 1h 10 min away. There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, stroll around Red Rock Canyon Open Space, see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, and contemplate the waterfront views at Manitou Springs Incline.
