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 enjoy Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Venture out of the city with trips to Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Skyline Drive (in Canon City) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, walk around Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and admire the sheer force of The Broadmoor Seven Falls.

To see maps, reviews, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Colorado Springs trip builder .

Expect a daytime high around 83°F in August, and nighttime lows around 56°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
