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.
Kids will enjoy North Pole - Santa's Workshop and Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center. Discover out-of-the-way places like The Winery at Holy Cross Abbey and Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center at Colorado College. Venture out of the city with trips to 300 Days of Shine (in Monument) and Littleton (Breckenridge Brewery & Roxborough State Park). There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at North Cheyenne Canon Park and Starsmore Discovery Center, take in the exciting artwork at Commonwheel Artists Co-op, tour the pleasant surroundings at Palmer Park, and don't miss a visit to Starr Kempf's Metal Sculptures.
