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 Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Peterson Air & Space Museum. Visit Rock Ledge Ranch Historic Site and Old Homestead House Museum for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Canon City (The Abbey Events Complex, The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey, & more), Cripple Creek (Outlaw and Lawmen Jail Museum & Cripple Creek District Museum) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, admire the masterpieces at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, walk around North Cheyenne Canon Park, and identify plant and animal life at Bear Creek Nature Center.

To see more things to do, photos, reviews, and other tourist information, use the Colorado Springs trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in October, and nighttime lows around 39°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
