From vast prairie grasslands to the majestic mountains, rushing rivers to desert landscapes, Colorado is unlike anywhere else. The highest-altitude state in the USA offers an unbelievable selection of wildlife and natural wonders as well as rich cultural heritage found in frontier forts, narrow-gauge railways, mining museums, dinosaur fossils, ancient cliff dwellings and in the art of local American Indian tribes. From ice climbing to a hot springs soak, a stay in a historic hotel or a trip through a ghost town, Colorado’s Western legacy is everywhere.

Beyond the rodeos and dude ranches, visitors will find an invigorating culinary scene, with plenty of farm-to-table restaurants, breweries, vineyards and wineries. Twenty-five top-notch ski resorts immerse visitors in the alpine culture. Wildlife festivals, gardens and scenic byways make it easy to linger in the great outdoors.

With so many great things to see and do throughout the state all year long, there’s never a bad time to be here.
