Residents in the Centennial State are most interested in visiting the Garden of the Gods. This awe-inspiring Colorado Springs attraction was established in 1994 and is now a registered National Natural Landmark. Millions of people, from near and far, plan trips to this scenic destination on an annual basis. In addition to stunning views of the surrounding mountains, the park features amazing hiking, biking and photography opportunities, as well as educational information inside the Nature Center.

Our neighbors to the north in Wyoming are among the nature-loving citizens. Residents there most want to visit the gorgeous Grand Teton National Park.

Museums, galleries, and zoos were also some of the most frequently-searched tourist destinations around the country.

Red Rock Canyon Open Space is right up the road from Garden of the Gods. It provides a similar experience, without the crowds (or fees) at the other popular park in town.
