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.
Visit Old Colorado City and Glen Eyrie Castle for their historical value. National Museum of World War II Aviation and Penrose Heritage Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide), Cripple Creek (Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine & Old Homestead House Museum) and Red Rocks Group Campground (in Woodland Park). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center, deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, and explore the ancient world of Manitou Cliff Dwellings.

Expect a daytime high around 79°F in September, and nighttime lows around 51°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
