Things to Do in Colorado

With a large part of the state in the Rocky Mountains, discover things to do year-round. Attractions include ski resorts: Aspen/Snowmass for the rich and famous; budget-minded Winter Park; Breckinridge, Cooper, Vail, Beaver Creek and Sunlight – all easily accessed from I-70; Steamboat with its cowboy feel; plus Telluride/Purgatory in the southwest.  Gold-rush stories are still told in Leadville, Golden and Independence. Colorado Spring’s Pike Peak and nearby Air Force Academy and Garden of the Gods are major draws. Drive through Rocky Mountain National Park via Estes Park. Boulder’s charm is captured on Pearl Street. Be sure to visit the capital Denver home to LoDo with many restaurants and 16th Street Mall. Find hotels, condos, vacation homes and B&Bs.
