Colorado Springs — 6 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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Old Colorado City and Manitou Cliff Dwellings. Get a sense of the local culture at Rocky Mountain Food Tours and Penrose Heritage Museum. Take a break from Colorado Springs with a short trip to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide, about 42 minutes away. There's much more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, stroll through Manitou Springs Incline, take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and shake up your sightseeing with a climbing tour.

To find photos, other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Colorado Springs trip itinerary planner.
