Towering mountains, ancient wonders and a fun-loving culture
Home of the world-famous Rocky Mountains, Colorado has an endless array of things to do and see in every season. The incredible Rockies, which run north to south through the center of the state, are a big draw for skiing, snowboarding, hiking and biking. The springtime melt from the snowy peaks feed many rivers, which provide a watery playground for rafting, fishing and swimming, and a beautiful array of wildflowers in the spring.
Colorado also has a rich history to explore, as evidenced by Mesa Verde National Park, where the landscape is punctuated by ancient cliff dwellings. The state’s landscape is also marked by incredible deserts, vast prairies, lakes and trendy urban enclaves like Denver and Boulder. You’ll also find a wide variety of beautiful wildlife such as eagles, hawks and bears.
