Colorado holiday accommodation and visitor attractions

Colorado, home of the Rocky Mountains and American ski resorts. In the summertime, the mountains offer opportunities for every outdoor activity. People come for the exciting sports of canyoning, rock climbing and mountain biking. Others come to learn ranch skills and horse ride through the spectacular scenery. Those who love the wilderness come to hike, hunt, and camp in quiet places or simply to sit by a still lake and fish in total solitude. Thrill seekers can enjoy white-water rafting on the mighty Colorado River.

In past, prospectors and gold diggers headed out west to seek their fortunes. Some ended up at the Argo Gold Mine in Idaho Springs. Come and find out if they ever struck gold. Take a trip back in time in style on the Colorado Dinner Train. This old steam train travels the Royal Gorge Route whilst you enjoy dinner or a murder mystery evening.

Many millions of years ago, when the Earth was young, Colorado was at the bottom of an enormous sea filled with monstrous sea creatures. Today, you can see their remains at Fossil Ridge. Or, for real live creatures, come to Colorado Gators Farm in Mosca. Animal lovers will also enjoy a trip to Denver to visit the Downtown Aquarium and Denver Zoo.

Aspen is a glamorous ski resort, popular with celebrities. There are over 70 ski runs offering plenty of challenges for skiing and snowboarding. In the evening, come and enjoy live music around the fountain or a performance at the Wheeler Opera House. Museums in the town tell the story of Aspen through the silver rush and art galleries exhibit work by local artists. During the summer months, music lovers descend on the town for the Aspen Music Festival.

Need warming up? The historic Hot Sulphur Springs Resort has been using natural thermal waters to soothe aching muscles for a hundred years.

In the autumn, the vines of Colorado are fragrant with heavy branches of ripe fruit. Many vineyards welcome visitors for tastings and tours.
