Colorado Springs

National Landmark red cliffs and the even more striking Pikes Peak mountain attracts tourism to Colorado Springs.
Bring the kids along to River Rafting & Tubing and Battlefield Colorado. There's still lots to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, go for a walk through Pikes Peak, explore and take pictures at United States Air Force Academy, and find something for the whole family at North Pole - Santa's Workshop.

Start your trip to Colorado Springs by creating a personalized itinerary on Inspirock.

Charlotte to Colorado Springs is an approximately 6.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and shuttle; or drive. The time zone changes from Eastern Standard Time (EST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST), which is usually a -2 hour difference. Plan for a bit cooler nights when traveling from Charlotte in June since evenings lows in Colorado Springs dip to 54°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Tue) so you can drive to Buena Vista.
