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.
Pack the 11th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. There's lots more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, don't miss a visit to Starr Kempf's Metal Sculptures, take a memorable drive along Pikes Peak - America's Mountain, and learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation.
