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 out of the city life by going to Pike's Peak - America's Mountain and The Broadmoor Seven Falls. Do some cultural sightseeing at National Museum of World War II Aviation and Old Colorado City. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Colorado Springs: Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center (in Divide) and Victor's Gold Camp Ag & Mining Museum (in Victor). There's much more to do: walk around Garden of the Gods, look for all kinds of wild species at Bear Creek Nature Center, deepen your knowledge of military history at United States Air Force Academy, and trek along Fountain Creek Nature Center.

To see other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Colorado Springs online visit planner .

Use the Route module to see travel options from your home to Colorado Springs. In March, plan for daily highs up to 57°F, and evening lows to 28°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 28th (Sat) early enough to go by car to Canon City.
