Colorado Springs — 4 nights

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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Peterson Air & Space Museum and Miramont Castle Museum. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument and Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Horsethief Falls (in Divide) and Shelf Rd (in Cripple Creek). There's lots more to do: examine the collection at ProRodeo Hall of Fame, deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, brush up on your military savvy at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and hike along Fountain Creek Regional Park.
