A registered National Natural Landmark, the Garden of the Gods is a collection of 300-foot sandstone rock formations set in the shadow of famous Pikes Peak. The formations are more than 300 million years old and have names like the Siamese Twins, Kissing Camels, and Cathedral Spires. Donated to the city of Colorado Springs in 1909, the 1,300-acre park has plenty of hiking trails and opportunities for horseback riding, mountain biking, and rock climbing. The visitors’ center houses exhibits on the history and geology of the park, as well as a café and a gift shop selling American Indian jewelry.

Insider Tip:

Visit early in the morning to guarantee a parking spot, beat the crowds, and watch the sunrise.
