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.
Visiting The Broadmoor Seven Falls and Bear Creek Nature Center will get you outdoors. National Museum of World War II Aviation and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Colorado Springs with an excursion to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide--about 42 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: stroll around Garden of the Gods, look for all kinds of wild species at Cottonwood Creek Park, meet the residents at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, and explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon Open Space.

For reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs day trip planning site.
