Colorado Springs

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 off the beaten path and head to Glen Eyrie Castle and Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. Step out of the city life by going to Colorado Wolf Adventures and Palmer Park. Get out of town with these interesting Colorado Springs side-trips: Mueller State Park (in Divide) and Cripple Creek (Wildwood Casino, Mt Pisgah Cemetery, &more). There's much more to do: see the interesting displays at Penrose Heritage Museum, get curious at Peterson Air & Space Museum, get the adrenaline pumping with Rusty Wallace Racing Experience, and don't miss a visit to Starr Kempf's Metal Sculptures.

To see reviews, other places to visit, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Colorado Springs planning website.

Getting from Canon City to Colorado Springs by car takes about an hour. Other options: drive; or take a bus. Traveling from Canon City in December, plan for little chillier nights in Colorado Springs, with lows around 18°F.
