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.
Family-friendly places like Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds Mountain Park will thrill your kids. When in Colorado Springs, make a side trip to see Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine in Cripple Creek, approximately Cripple Creek away. There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, stroll through Manitou Springs Incline, learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation, and take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls.
