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 North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide), Mollie Kathleen Gold Mine (in Cripple Creek) and Canon City (The Abbey Events Complex, Skyline Drive, & more). There's much more to do: learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, get in on the family fun at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park, and see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum.

To find reviews, traveler tips, ratings, and more tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs road trip planning tool .

Expect a daytime high around 45°F in December, and nighttime lows around 18°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
