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'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum and Seven Bridges Trail. Escape the urban bustle at Palmer Park and Cheyenne Mountain State Park. Next up on the itinerary: examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum, get outside with Adventures Out West, appreciate the history behind Will Rogers Memorial Shrine of the Sun, and contemplate the long history of Peterson Air & Space Museum.
