Travel : Five Things You Can’t Leave Colorado Without Trying

Colorado is one of America’s premier destinations and it’s not hard to see why. Beautiful landscapes, breathtaking mountains, and gorgeous national parks offer something for everyone. Whether you’re looking for a comfortable city break, a relaxing break from the hustle and bustle or want to hit the slopes. Colorado is the kind of destination that offers more than you could ever imagine, and then some. Here are just a few things that you won’t want to miss out on during your time in the centennial state.

1.Dude ranches

We all need a break from the stress of modern life from time to time. The incessant beeping of phones and computers can leave you feeling tense and exhausted. With that in mind, what better way to get away from it all that with a trip to a Colorado dude ranch. These technology free getaways let you and your family get stuck in at the ranch and create some truly wonderful memories together. After a few days, you’ll wonder how you ever thought you couldn’t live without your phone.


2.Romance in Durango

Without taking a trip to Durango, you might not even be able to say you truly saw Colorado at all. One of the most beautiful landscapes that the state has to offer, Durango is the perfect place for an intimate getaway with your partner. Arguably the best place to experience the city’s beauty is on the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad. This traditional steam train has been in operation since 1882. You’ll be able to enjoy the sights of Durango while traveling on the very same railroad traveled by the old West pioneers. There’s no better way to get into the old west spirit.


3,Have a drink!

Colorado has a, frankly, exceptional reputation for brewing. It produces more barrels of beer every year than any other state. But it’s not just about quantity; it’s about quality. Colorado boasts some of the USA’s finest craft breweries. You can enjoy fascinating tours of the breweries themselves, such as the fabulous Pug Ryan’s Brewery. There the tour even lets you sample some delicious summit county craft brews.


4.Hit the slopes

There’s a reason the Rocky Mountains are the jewel in Colorado’s crown. The claim of America’s best skiing is no lie. Whether you’re looking for some serious speed or some serious cross country skiing,  Colorado has to be the number one destination for any winter break.

5.Take in some culture

For those of you uninterested in beer and Cowboys, how about something a little more cultured. Colorado offers a whole host of activities ranging from galleries to performances. The Denver Art Museum, Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center and the Museum of Contemporary Art Denver will scratch that fine arts itch any day. If you’re more interested in the performing arts, then you won’t want to miss Boulder’s annual Shakespeare Festival. A long-running event that explores The Bard’s work in new and innovative ways.

This list is far from containing everything you could ever want to do in Colorado. But hopefully, it’s given you some idea of just how much there is to do in this incredible state.
