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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Garden of the Gods and Battlefield Colorado. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Skyline Drive (in Canon City) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). The adventure continues: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, and get to know the fascinating history of Old Colorado City.

To find more things to do, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 67°F in October, and nighttime lows around 39°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 21st (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
