A Few Things to Do in Colorado

Of all of the great places to go in the country for a vacation… one state comes to mind that has a little something for everyone; Colorado. I’ve had the opportunity to go out to Colorado for family vacations for the first 15 years of my life and I cherish all of the great memories I spent in the mountains, rivers and the city of Denver. Now I live in Colorado and want to share some of the great things to do here for those who are looking at taking a Colorado vacation in the near future.

1.) Colorado River Rafting: Whitewater rafting is a great family event in the summers of Colorado usually the end of May until August. There are different rivers with different types or classes of rapids. Almost all of the rafting companies in Colorado offer various types of rafting trips in regards to difficulty. Colorado whitewater rafting is an event everyone in your family will remember.

2.) Downhill Skiing or Snowboarding: With over 15 different ski resorts in the state of Colorado, your options are wide open as far as where you go. Whether you are a novice or expert on the slopes, each resort offers multi-level runs for everyone in the family not to mention great lessons, child care and of course rentals. The ski towns in Colorado offer great amenities, restaurants, and much more.

3.) Watch A Concert At Red Rocks Amphitheatre: With the impressive rock structures surrounding the stage, the skyline views of downtown Denver off in the horizon and the talented artists that come to play the Red Rocks Amphitheatre is one of the top outdoor amphitheatres in the country. If you take a trip out to Colorado in the summer, you have to see a concert at this great venue.

4.) Soak in the Glenwood Springs Hot Springs: What could be more relaxing than soaking in the natural hot springs with the scenery of the mountains around you in a celebrated landmark in the heart of Glenwood Springs, Colorado. On the grounds of the World’s Largest Hot Springs Pool they offer a 107 room lodge, water slides, mini golf, a premier athletic club, and the spectacular new Spa of the Rockies.

5.) Garden of the Gods Park: Discover the breathtaking red rock formations jetting out of the ground of this one of a kind Natural Landmark in Colorado Springs. The park offers views of Pikes Peak, hiking trails and picnic areas for you and your family to enjoy. This nationally known park is free to its visitors and has been maintained for over 100 years.

As you can see there are a wide variety of things to do in Colorado and these are just a few a handful. If you enjoy the outdoors, Colorado is your playground.
