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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Colorado Springs: Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek), Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor) and Canon City (Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience & Skyline Drive). And it doesn't end there: take in the pleasant sights at Pike's Peak - America's Mountain, deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, and examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum.

To find photos, maps, more things to do, and more tourist information, read Colorado Springs trip planner .

In December, plan for daily highs up to 45°F, and evening lows to 18°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
