Colorado Springs

— 5 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.
Attractions like Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, take a memorable drive along Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, soar above the sights with a balloon tour, and stop by Old Colorado City.

For more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and more tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs trip itinerary maker app.
