Colorado Springs — 1 day

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.
Start off your visit on the 28th (Thu): stroll around Garden of the Gods, get in on the family fun at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop, and then get outside with Outdoor Activities.

Plan my trip to Colorado Springs with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Chicago to Colorado Springs is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and bus. The time zone difference moving from Central Standard Time (CST) to Mountain Standard Time (MST) is minus 1 hour. Traveling from Chicago in April, plan for slightly colder nights in Colorado Springs, with lows around 33°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Thu) to allow enough time to fly back home.

El Paso County travel guide

4.4
Parks · Scenic Drive · Zoos
Encompassing the central part of Colorado, El Paso County features a diverse landscape ranging from mountains in the west to the prairies in the east. Famous for its scenic beauty, this part of the state inspired the lyrics of the iconic song "America the Beautiful." Pikes Peak, one of Colorado's 53 mountains reaching more than 4,300 m (14,000 ft) above sea level, dominates the county's skyline and attracts hikers from around the country. Plan to spend at least a few days exploring the protected wilderness areas around the peak during your vacation, but don't forget to leave some time on your itinerary for Colorado Springs, the county's biggest city, known for its sports venues and parks.
