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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide), Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Skyline Drive (in Canon City). There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of World War II Aviation, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space.

To see reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and tourist information, go to the Colorado Springs tour itinerary site.

Pagosa Springs to Colorado Springs is an approximately 5- hour car ride. You can also do a combination of car and flight; or do a combination of shuttle and flight. Traveling from Pagosa Springs in December, you will find days in Colorado Springs are a bit warmer (45°F), and nights are about the same (18°F). Cap off your sightseeing on the 21st (Sat) early enough to go by car back home.
