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.
Visiting Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and North Cheyenne Canon Park and Starsmore Discovery Center will get you outdoors. Museum-lovers will appreciate Museum of Colorado Prisons and Miramont Castle Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Florissant Fossil Beds National Monument (in Florissant), Bishop Castle (in Rye) and Canon City (The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey & River Rafting & Tubing). There's more to do: look for gifts at Garden of the Gods Trading Post and take an in-depth tour of Colorado Springs Pioneers Museum.

Inspirock's itinerary builder makes planning a Colorado Springs trip simple and quick.

The Route module can give you travel options from your home to Colorado Springs. In May, plan for daily highs up to 68°F, and evening lows to 42°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 31st (Fri) to allow time to take a bus to Denver.

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Kick off your visit on the 1st (Sat): learn more about the world around you at Denver Museum of Nature & Science, admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception, then browse the different shops at 16th Street Mall, and finally identify plant and animal life at Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center. Here are some ideas for day two: see the interesting displays at Argo Mill and Tunnel, relax and float downstream with a rafting and tubing tour, and then steep yourself in history at Dinosaur Ridge.

You can take a bus from Colorado Springs to Denver in an hour. Other options are to drive; or fly. May in Denver sees daily highs of 66°F and lows of 43°F at night. Wrap up your sightseeing by early afternoon on the 3rd (Mon) to allow time for the bus ride back home.
