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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. Visiting Palmer Park and Cheyenne Mountain State Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Cripple Creek District Museum (in Cripple Creek), Canon City (The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey & Tunnel Drive) and Horsethief Falls (in Divide). There's lots more to do: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, look for gifts at Commonwheel Artists Co-op, identify plant and animal life at Bear Creek Nature Center, and stroll around North Cheyenne Canon Park.
