Colorado Springs

— 6 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.
Take a break from the city and head to North Cheyenne Canon Park and Colorado Wolf Adventures. Explore hidden gems such as Mueller State Park and Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide) and Cañon City (Museum of Colorado Prisons & The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, contemplate the long history of Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site, get curious at Western Museum of Mining and Industry, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Bear Creek Nature Center.

To find maps, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs attractions planner.

Joplin to Colorado Springs is an approximately 5.5-hour combination of flight and car. You can also drive.

Plan for little chillier temperatures traveling from Joplin in October, with highs in Colorado Springs at 67°F and lows at 39°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 26th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
