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 Garden of the Gods. Attractions like Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and Battlefield Colorado make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor) and Skyline Drive (in Canon City). And it doesn't end there: go for a walk through Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, get in on the family fun at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum.

For photos, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip planner.

Expect a daytime high around 45°F in December, and nighttime lows around 18°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 1st (Wed) so you can travel back home.
