Colorado Springs — 7 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.
Get outdoors at Pikes Peak - America's Mountain and Fountain Creek Regional Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colorado Springs: Monument (Kings Deer Golf Club & Monument Rock Trail), Cañon City (Garden Park Fossil Area, Skyline Drive, &more) and Red Rocks Group Campground (in Woodland Park). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center, brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls.
