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've added Colorado Fishing Rampart Reservoir, Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory, St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral, and other attractions to your itinerary. Family-friendly places like Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo will thrill your kids. National Museum of World War II Aviation and Peterson Air & Space Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center in Divide (about 42 minutes away). There's lots more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Colorado City, explore the striking landscape at Red Rock Canyon Open Space, hike along Fountain Creek Nature Center, and deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy.
