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. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor) and Skyline Drive (in Canon City). Next up on the itinerary: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, trot along with a tour on horseback, and wander the streets of Old Colorado City.

For maps, photos, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs road trip planning website .

In August, daily temperatures in Colorado Springs can reach 83°F, while at night they dip to 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
