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'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. National Museum of World War II Aviation and Penrose Heritage Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Go for a jaunt from Colorado Springs to Divide to see Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center about 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Colorado City, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, look for all kinds of wild species at Fountain Creek Nature Center, and get in on the family fun at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park.
