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.
Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours has been added to your itinerary. When in Colorado Springs, make a side trip to see Skyline Drive in Canon City, approximately 1h 20 min away. There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, deepen your understanding at United States Air Force Academy, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and go for a walk through Pike's Peak - America's Mountain.

To see photos, maps, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip planner .
