Colorado Springs

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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Colorado Springs: Canon City (River Rafting & Tubing & Skyline Drive). And it doesn't end there: walk around Garden of the Gods, shop like a local with Manitou Cliff Dwellings, take in the dramatic scenery at The Broadmoor Seven Falls, and get in on the family fun at North Pole Colorado Santa’s Workshop.

Denver

Mile-High City

Aptly nicknamed the "Mile-High City," Denver sits at an altitude of 1,600 m (5,280 ft) above sea level, located right where the Great Plains give way to the Rocky Mountains.
Your day by day itinerary now includes Echo Mountain. Explore Denver's surroundings by going to Trail Ridge Road (in Rocky Mountain National Park), Hotel de Paris Museum (in Georgetown) and Idaho Springs (River Rafting & Tubing & Summit Lake Park). There's still lots to do: take your sightseeing to a higher altitude at Mount Evans, pause for some serene contemplation at Trinity United Methodist Church, take a memorable tour with Tours, and take a pleasant ride with a tour on horseback.

To see reviews, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, read Denver route tool.

You can drive from Colorado Springs to Denver in 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take a bus; or do a combination of flight and train. Expect a daytime high around 87°F in July, and nighttime lows around 60°F.
