Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Canon City (Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience & Skyline Drive) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). Next up on the itinerary: get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, wander the streets of Old Colorado City, get in on the family fun at North Pole - Santa's Workshop, and take in the dramatic natural features at Red Rock Canyon Open Space.
