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.
Family-friendly places like Garden of the Gods and North Pole - Santa's Workshop will thrill your kids. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Skyline Drive (in Canon City). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, have some family-friendly fun at Battlefield Colorado, find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, and expand your understanding of the military at United States Air Force Academy.

For reviews, other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs online trip planner .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airports are Denver International Airport and City of Colorado Springs Municipal Airport. Expect a daytime high around 15°C in November, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
