Colorado Springs

— 2 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.
Garden of the Gods has been added to your itinerary. Step off the beaten path and head to North Cheyenne Canon Park and Western Museum of Mining and Industry. Get in touch with nature at Seven Bridges Trail and Pikes Peak - America's Mountain. There's still lots to do: trek along Palmer Park and find something for the whole family at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop.
