Colorado Springs

— 3 nights
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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Cañon City (The Abbey Events Complex, River Rafting & Tubing, &more). There's lots more to do: stroll around Garden of the Gods, admire the masterpieces at Michael Garman Museum & Gallery, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and get to know the resident critters at Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.

Manitou Springs

Manitou Springs' main street was once a trail that led directly to the base of Pike's Peak.

Pack the 21st (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. There's much more to do: explore the activities along Manitou Springs Incline, examine the collection at Miramont Castle Museum, get in on the family fun at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, and delve into the distant past at Manitou Cliff Dwellings.
