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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Penrose Heritage Museum. Kids will appreciate attractions like Peterson Air & Space Museum and Garden of the Gods. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant), Cripple Creek District Museum (in Cripple Creek) and Mueller State Park (in Divide). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of ANA Money Museum, get in on the family fun at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, admire the masterpieces at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College, and have some family-friendly fun at Battlefield Colorado.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs vacation planner .

In December in Colorado Springs, expect temperatures between 45°F during the day and 18°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 4th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
