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 Cripple Creek (Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine & Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum), Canon City (The Abbey Events Complex, River Rafting & Tubing, &more) and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, gain insight at United States Air Force Academy, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

To see reviews, maps, where to stay, and other tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs trip maker website.

Kansas City to Colorado Springs is an approximately 5.5- hour combination of bus and flight. You can also do a combination of bus, flight, and shuttle; or drive. You'll gain 1 hour traveling from Kansas City to Colorado Springs due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Kansas City in June, plan for a bit cooler nights in Colorado Springs, with lows around 54°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
