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 Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Hidden Mesa Open Space & Trail. Kids will appreciate attractions like Cheyenne Mountain Zoo and North Cheyenne Canon Park and Starsmore Discovery Center. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Cherry Creek State Park (in Aurora), Horsethief Falls (in Divide) and Fountain Creek Nature Center (in Fountain). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Manitou Cliff Dwellings, wander the streets of Old Colorado City Historic District, hike along Gateway Mesa Open Space Park, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at St. Mary's Catholic Cathedral.

Expect a daytime high around 57°F in March, and nighttime lows around 28°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
