Colorado Travel Guide

Colorado has to be one of the most naturally beautiful US states. Home to incredible national parks, unique scenery, and a diverse set of geographic landscapes, it would be easy to spend an entire month in Colorado and barely scratch the surface of what it has to offer.

Things to Do in Colorado

Colorado is a hiker and natur-lover’s paradise. With many national parks to choose from in the area, one of the most popular and beloved is the Rocky Mountain National Park -- a phenomenal 415-square mile park that offers hundreds of hiking trails to suit every age and ability. As you travel around the Rocky Mountain National Park, you'll be met with immeasurable views of snow-capped mountain peaks, Bear Lake, and Longs Peak -- the tallest mountain in the area.

Mesa Verde National Park is quite unlike anything else you would expect to find in the US and exists in the form of carved cave dwellings where ancient settlers once lived. Archeological sites in the area demonstrate findings from Native Americans that lived here centuries ago, while the Petroglyph Point Trail leads travelers past dozens of carvings and paintings created on the rocks.

Though the nature is what makes Colorado special, the beauty of its cities should not be overlooked. Denver in particular is a charming place, with a range of world-class restaurants, shops and cafes.

Best Time to Visit Colorado

Colorado is best enjoyed in the warmer summer months when conditions are perfect for outdoor exploration.
