Garden of the Gods
Colorado Springs, Colorado
It’s not your ordinary garden. So don't expect rows of manicured perennials at Garden of the Gods Park, a registered National Natural Landmark near Colorado Springs. Here, 300 red-hued towers of limestone soar into the sky, redefining the pine-plentiful mountain landscape. Hike, bike or ride horses on trails that weave between these natural pillars of stone. Pack a picnic. Or nosh in the Cafe at the Garden, which offers panoramic views of Pikes Peak.
