Colorado Offers Breathtaking Views And Lots Of Adventure
While humans have managed to tame some of the wilds of Colorado with upscale resorts and ski lodges, there is still an abundance of breathtaking beauty to explore in this state famous for its high-end visitors and rugged Rocky Mountain views. Visitors here will find there is literally something for everyone to do if Colorado is the destination. Offering a completely different experience in the warmer months than in the colder, Colorado is perfect for a visit anytime.
Those who visit Colorado will find many of the offerings differ depending on the time of year. While some of the activities are constant, no matter the weather, others change dramatically with the falling of the snow. The different things to do in Colorado, depending on the time of year, include:
Summer, Spring, Fall Activities
- Hiking, horseback riding: Almost the entirety of Colorado is perfect for those who want to get out and explore. From wild Rocky Mountain trails to grasslands and valleys, the sights those will find are truly spectacular. Those who are lucky enough are likely to spot some amazing wildlife during a hiking or riding trek through the mountains. Elk, mule deer, rams and more all make the region and its wilderness home. Depending on where hikes and rides take place, it is even possible to leave 90-degree weather behind for a snowball fight in the mountains. The contrasts in weather are amazing.
- Hunting, fishing, camping: Some of the best hunting, fishing and camping in the world is found within Colorado. With incredible mountain views, crystal clear mountain streams and pristine lakes to explore, the region is a favorite of outdoor lovers for a reason. Camping is available in many locations throughout the state.
- Dude ranches: A number of these are available, promising to give visitors a real Wild West experience. From horseback riding to cattle rustling, visitors generally get to do a little bit of it all.
- Mountain climbing: Many come to Colorado strictly to face off against some of the state's highest mountains. From Pike's Peak to Mt. Hallet, there are some incredible rocky outcrops for the adventurous to explore.
- Historic sites: Getting to some of the state's most historic of sites is not always possible, or at least easy, during the winter. During warmer months, it is possible to visit many early settlements, mills, mines, drivable mountain peaks and more. A famous stop that many enjoy is the infamous Stanley Hotel, which was the inspiration for Stephen King's "The Shining."
- Snow sports: As beautiful as Colorado is in the warmer months, the state really comes alive when the first snows fall. During the winter, skiers, snowboarders and more flock to this state to explore its many famous slopes. From Vail and Breckenridge to Beaver Creek and beyond, Colorado is a skier's paradise.
- Skating: Ice skaters, too, find something incredibly awe inspiring about visiting this state in the winter and skating with the picture perfect backdrop the Rockies present.
There are also a host of any time activities to be found in Colorado. From exploring the offerings of Vail, Grand Junction, Colorado Springs and more to dining in some of the five-star restaurants of Denver and shopping in locations far and wide, Colorado offers something for everyone. This state is considered one of the most loved by outdoors types, but it also appeals to those who want upscale trips, as well.
