Colorado Springs

— 6 nights
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.
You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and National Museum of World War II Aviation. Go for a jaunt from Colorado Springs to Divide to see Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center about 42 minutes away. The adventure continues: stroll around Garden of the Gods, deepen your understanding at United States Air Force Academy, take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and get advice or help at Glen Eyrie Castle.
