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.
Attractions like Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds Mountain Park make great kid-friendly stops. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Skyline Drive (in Canon City) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's lots more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, find something for the whole family at North Pole - Santa's Workshop, and have some family-friendly fun at Battlefield Colorado.
