Colorado Springs

— 5 nights
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.
Change things up with a short trip to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide (about 42 minutes away). The adventure continues: learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, walk around Garden of the Gods, explore the activities along Manitou Springs Incline, and don't miss a visit to Glen Eyrie Castle.
