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.
Kids will enjoy Garden of the Gods and United States Air Force Academy. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Canon City (The Abbey Events Complex, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). There's lots more to do: meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, identify plant and animal life at North Cheyenne Canon Park, walk around Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and soar above the sights with a balloon tour.
