Colorado Springs

— 7 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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Penrose Heritage Museum and Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site. Museum-lovers will get to explore Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College and Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Cañon City (Royal Gorge Helitours, Tunnel Drive, &more) and Mueller State Park (in Divide). The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Memorial Park, see the interesting displays at Western Museum of Mining and Industry, steep yourself in history at Peterson Air & Space Museum, and take an in-depth tour of Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum.
