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.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Manitou Springs Incline, Colorado Springs Military Museum and River Rafting & Tubing. Visit Manitou Cliff Dwellings and Glen Eyrie Castle for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey and Michael Garman Museum & Gallery. Venture out of the city with trips to Skyline Drive (in Canon City) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). And it doesn't end there: walk around Garden of the Gods, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, look for all kinds of wild species at North Cheyenne Canon Park, and take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space.
