Tourists Have Found the Treasures of Colorado
Not everyone wanted to go to California in search of gold in the days of the Wild West. Many settlers found wonderful land that made them stop and just take it all in. The area east of the Rocky Mountains is still having that effect upon people. The days of modern transport have opened up a tourist industry where the locals are able to share their good fortune with anyone that wants plenty of outside activities in surroundings that are pleasing on the eye. There is an excellent infrastructure to welcome visitors who will want for nothing.
It is a region that has something to offer all year round. It is cold in midwinter but there is still plenty of blue sky for everyone to enjoy and winter sports to help you breathe in the fresh and invigorating air. You can ski within your capabilities or perhaps you prefer snowboarding. There is something so special about the pure white snow that is so inviting.
At the end of the day you will certainly have an appetite while you sit around a log fire and discuss the activity of the day and what to do the next.
When the snow finally leaves for the year it leaves behind rivers full of trout, lakes and forests that positively welcome the active. You may want to hike though the forests or perhaps go further afield on a bike. There is white water rafting for the adventurous or kayaking for those who are perhaps less brave. Either way there are guides to ensure that everyone is in perfectly safe surroundings.
During the winter you will not look beyond warm accommodation but there are plenty of places for you to camp during the summer with parking and other facilities. It means you do not have to go completely wild. When you pull back the tent flaps in the morning you will see nature at its best.
Explore the Rockies
There are some many things to do in Colorado that two weeks hardly seem sufficient. The Rocky Mountains provide a stunning backdrop and even though it is nice to explore on foot or cycle you may decide to go further afield from your chosen base to see a little more. You won’t want to spend too much time in the car but then again if you are on holiday you won’t see the Rockies every day.
There is a chance to get involved in the local community; there are many local Colorado Events such as markets, concerts and festivals where visitors can join in with those who are lucky enough to be able to call themselves local. Inevitably once the Spring arrives so many of these events are outdoors and remain so until very late in the year when the trails close just after Thanksgiving. You may even want to compete in one of the races that are regularly scheduled if you are around at the time. There is no need to worry about a lack of things to do whatever time of year you visit.
