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.
Old Colorado City Historic District and Manitou Cliff Dwellings will appeal to history buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Colorado Wolf and Wildlife Center and Pikes Peak. Explore Colorado Springs' surroundings by going to Hidden Mesa Open Space & Trail (in Castle Rock), River Rafting & Tubing (in Canon City) and Rocky Mountain Wildlife Foundation (in Guffey). Pack the 16th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Cave of the Winds Mountain Park. Next up on the itinerary: identify plant and animal life at North Cheyenne Canon Park and Starsmore Discovery Center, examine the collection at Penrose Heritage Museum, trek along Fountain Creek Nature Center, and take a peaceful walk through White River National Forest.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Denver International Airport. Expect a daytime high around 35°C in July, and nighttime lows around 17°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
