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.
Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Canon City (Royal Gorge Route Railroad, Royal Gorge Zip Line Tours, &more). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, explore the world behind art at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, and view the masterpieces at Commonwheel Artists Co-op.

To find ratings, other places to visit, maps, and other tourist information, read our Colorado Springs journey planning website.

Cincinnati to Colorado Springs is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Cincinnati to Colorado Springs, you'll gain 2 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Cincinnati in September since evenings lows in Colorado Springs dip to °F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sun) so you can drive to Woodland Park.

The City of Woodland Park is a Home Rule Municipality that is the most populous city in Teller County, Colorado, United States and is immediately west of El Paso County and the unincorporated community of Crystola.

It doesn't end there: explore the activities along Manitou Park Lake.

Woodland Park is very close to Colorado Springs. In September, plan for daily highs up to °F, and evening lows to °F. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 9th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
