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 Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours to your itinerary. Step out of Colorado Springs to go to Canon City and see Skyline Drive, which is approximately 1h 20 min away. The adventure continues: walk around Garden of the Gods, deepen your understanding at United States Air Force Academy, see the sights as you ascend with a climbing tour, and find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.

To see photos, traveler tips, reviews, and other tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs online sightseeing planner.

Ames to Colorado Springs is an approximately 6- hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Ames to Colorado Springs due to the time zone difference. Plan for little chillier nights when traveling from Ames in June since evenings lows in Colorado Springs dip to 54°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
