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.
Bring the kids along to Garden of the Gods and Cheyenne Mountain Zoo. Escape the urban bustle at Pike's Peak - America's Mountain and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Cottonwood Creek Park, gain insight at United States Air Force Academy, and look for gifts at Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory.

Originally built as a base for Vail Ski Resort, the town of Vail has blossomed into its own destination, but still has less than 6,000 permanent residents.
On the 30th (Sat), take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback, then explore the striking landscape of Summit Lake Park, and then see the interesting displays at Georgetown Firefighting Museum. Here are some ideas for day two: cast your line with a fishing tour, hit the slopes at Beaver Creek Ski Area, and then get your game on at Vail Valley Escape Room.

For ratings, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Vail driving holiday website .

Traveling by car from Colorado Springs to Vail takes 3 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of flight and shuttle. When traveling from Colorado Springs in November, plan for colder days and little chillier nights in Vail: temperatures range from 34°F by day to 22°F at night. On the 2nd (Mon), wrap the sightseeing up by early afternoon so you can travel back home.
