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 out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Cañon City (Royal Gorge Regional Museum and History Center, Skyline Drive, &more) and Divide (Mueller State Park, Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center, &more). There's still lots to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, take an in-depth tour of U.S. Olympic & Paralympic Museum, explore the ancient world of Manitou Cliff Dwellings, and look for all kinds of wild species at Colorado Wolf Adventures.
