    Default Day Trips from Pueblo

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America Forums!

    Within abut an hour-and-a-half's drive (as far as I'd want to go on an out-and-back day trip from Pueblo) you have Garden of the Gods, the US Air Force Academy and AAA Baseball in Colorado Springs; Royal Gorge in Caņon City; Comanche National Grasslands, Bent's Old Fort and the Kit Carson Museum east of Pueblo in the La Junta/Los Animas area; and in Pueblo itself: arts, war birds, and nature.

    If you are going to Colorado Springs, there's also Pikes Peak.

    The great Sand dunes NP is a couple of hours [or so] southwest of Pueblo. Near to Garden of the Gods you will find Cave of the Winds. A scenic and historic area I have not yet been to but would like to is Cripple Creek, you might want to check it out.

    Picketwire (Purlgetoiore ) canyon - most dinosaur tracks in the US.

    Wiesbrod Aircraft Museum - Pueblo. Lots of airplanes in several hangars. Acces to a B-29 cockpit.

    I vote for great Sand dunes NP as well. You will experience 140 degree sand and 80 degree or below cool clean water stream at the same place. Wearing Shoes strongly recommended when on sand.
