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 discover tucked-away gems like Penrose Heritage Museum and Palmer Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Cripple Creek (Old Homestead House Museum & Cripple Creek District Museum), Canon City (The Abbey Events Complex & The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey) and Divide (Mueller State Park & Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center). There's much more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, admire the masterpieces at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, look for all kinds of wild species at North Cheyenne Canon Park, and listen to music at Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College.
