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 Garden of the Gods as well as North Cheyenne Canon Park. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site and Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Kids will appreciate attractions like Seven Bridges Trail and Adventures Out West. When in Colorado Springs, make a side trip to see Phantom Canyon Road in Cripple Creek, approximately Cripple Creek away. There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Rocky Mountain Dinosaur Resource Center, look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center, view the masterpieces at Commonwheel Artists Co-op, and hike along Barr Trail to Pikes Peak.

For maps, other places to visit, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Colorado Springs attractions website.

The Route module shows you travel options from your home to Colorado Springs. June in Colorado Springs sees daily highs of °F and lows of °F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Fri) so you can drive to Manitou Springs.
