Colorado is an all-year-round destination that piques the imagination and inspires the soul with its stunning landscape and natural beauty. The diversity ranges from the majestic Rocky Mountains to the rolling hills, beautiful alpine lakes, rivers, waterfalls, and the high desert of the Colorado Plateau.

Places to visit in Colorado:

Rocky Mountain:

Just a few miles from the mountain town of Estes Park, the Rocky Mountain National Park is among the most famous national parks in the United States. The high mountain peaks, alpine lakes and forests, meadows, and wildlife showcase nature at its prime. The park has over 100 peaks over 10,000 feet, including Longs Peak, the highest, at 14,259 feet. The Trail Ridge Road, which reaches above 12,000 feet, is the main driving route through the park and offers simple access to this fantastic terrain. Now, you can sightsee from the comfort of your car or stop along the way for a hike or leisurely walk.

Denver:

Colorado's most populated city is also its cultural hub. So while you can go anywhere in Colorado to find outdoor adventures galore, in Denver, you get the best of both worlds. The city is filled with museums, lively sports venues, prime shopping streets, and an unmatched brewery scene. Meanwhile, just outside city limits, you'll enjoy easy access to the Rockies, as well as the photogenic Mount Evans Scenic Byway.

Aspen:

If you're looking to have some fun during ski season, Aspen is the place to go. This small town is tucked between four renowned ski spots that offer quality slopes for all skiers. Apart from that, the town features the crème de la crème of luxury resorts, a growing culinary reputation (the Food and Wine Classic in Aspen is held here every summer), and an après-ski scene so appealing it'll be pretty tough to leave.

Vail:

This iconic ski town is a popular haven for celebrities and winter sports enthusiasts. With thousands of acres of snowy trails spread across one of the largest single-mountain resorts in the country, Vail is known for its top-notch skiing and snowboarding. But there is more to the town than just its slopes. When the snow melts and the temperatures rise, Vail's Epic Discovery area invites visitors to engage in other outdoor activities like zip-lining and mountain coaster rides. Those looking for less adrenaline-inducing entertainment should check out the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens and central Vail's boutiques.

Boulder:

Although Boulder is Denver's slightly smaller neighbor, it is no less impressive. With both the Rocky Mountains and the Flatirons in the background, Boulder combines all of the relaxations of an outdoor escape with the energy of a city. Nature lovers will feel right at home while hiking and biking the city's trails or tubing down its stretch of Boulder Creek. Those looking for more urban entertainment can explore Boulder's beer trails or shop and dine at Pearl Street Mall's boutiques and restaurants.
