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.
Step out of the city life by going to Pikes Peak - America's Mountain and The Broadmoor Seven Falls. Kids will appreciate attractions like Garden of the Gods and Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. There's still lots to do: whizz through the canopy at The Broadmoor Soaring Adventure, appreciate the extensive heritage of Old Colorado City, and stop by Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

To find ratings, traveler tips, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Colorado Springs trip planner.
