Colorado Springs

— 7 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 these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Cañon City (The Abbey Events Complex, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). Pack the 14th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. And it doesn't end there: stroll around Garden of the Gods, deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
