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 Battlefield Colorado will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Canon City (Skyline Drive & Museum of Colorado Prisons) and Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek). The adventure continues: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.
