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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colorado Springs: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Denver (Denver Botanic Gardens, Denver Zoo, & more) and River Rafting & Tubing (in Idaho Springs). There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, find something for the whole family at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and learn about all things military at National Museum of World War II Aviation.
