Your exploration of Colorado Springs can begin as soon as you deplane at Colorado Springs Airport. Next door at the Peterson Airforce Base is the Peterson Air & Space Museum, housed in the airport’s original Art Deco terminal building. Here you can learn about the base’s importance during World War II and explore several aircraft on display.
There are plenty of other museums to explore during your visit if aviation artifacts don’t blow your hair back. If an authentic Wild West experience is what you crave, explore the Ghost Town Museum. See preserved buildings from early towns in the Pikes Peak region, pan for gold like a prospector, and even play antique arcade games! If panning for gold has money on your mind, check out the American Numismatic Association Edward C. Rochette Money Museum—the largest museum dedicated to the study and collection of money in the U.S. The Mini-Mint allows visitors to see how coins were made from the 1500s to the late 1800s.
No visit to Colorado Springs would be complete without setting sights on the Garden of the Gods. Large red, pink, and white rock formations stretch tall above the tree line at this National Natural Landmark. Early European settlers first called the area Red Rock Corral, but surveyors in the 1850s decided that a place “fit for the Gods to assemble” should be called Garden of the Gods instead. It’s no surprise that this beautiful place is the city’s most popular public park; sightsee or take advantage of breathtaking views while hiking, biking, or horseback riding.
