Denver is of course the capital city of Colorado and is definitely worth a visit while you’re in the state. If you’re a sports fan, head to Coors Field stadium to catch a baseball game or take a walk around the Denver Museum of Nature and Science if you prefer a bit of mental stimulation. Another museum worth a look at is the Forney Museum of Transportation, where you can see a beautifully gleaming collection of vintage cars and even a steam train. You’ll be spoilt for choice with all of the restaurants and bars on offer. By the end of your city break, you’ll surely be searching for Colorado real estate to snap up!
Have A Drink
If you like a beer (or three) then head to some of the plentiful local breweries around Colorado. If you prefer your pints a little more European, the over to Fort Collins to the New Belgium Brewing Company, where you can try traditional Belgian beers right in the US.
Rocky Mountain National Park
This national park is not to be missed. The rugged mountains are picture perfect, with snow-capped tips reaching up into the sky. There is plenty of wildlife to be found with elks and bears roaming freely, so be on the lookout if you are camping or exploring with food on your person! You can visit as a day trip, or spend a few days there if you’re planning on long hikes and stargazing.
Red Rocks Amphitheater
Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a stunning piece of semi-natural architecture. The rocks were turned into an amphitheater thanks to their incredible natural acoustics for bands and live productions. Watch a unique show for a one-off experience (previous acts include Tyler the Creator and Tori Amos) or simply visit and take a walk around the rock formations.
Museum Of the Mountain West
Located in Montrose, this museum will blow your mind if you’re a fan of the Old West. You can wander through an authentic feeling set up, with an old-timey saloon and other Western buildings. Full of genuine artifacts, you can spend your day playing real-life cowboys!
If you’re an outdoorsy type, Black Canyon is unbeatable for things to enjoy. As well as hiking the grassy trails, you can camp in the East Portal campground, right next to the river. Hop on a boat down the river and see the incredible wildlife without having to walk, or grab a rod and try and catch some of the big trout on offer.
