Almost everyone knows Colorado offers some of the best skiing and snowboarding, mountain biking, white water rafting, rock climbing, and hiking in the United States.
What many don't know is that you don't have to be an extreme sports enthusiast or outdoor adventurer to enjoy everything the Rocky Mountains have to offer residents and visitors. Simply taking a drive over Vail Pass is enough to make you stop (preferably not in the middle of traffic) and appreciate the remarkable beauty of our Creator. Spend a day strolling along the streets of one of Colorado's historic mountain towns like Estes Park, Georgetown, Leadville, or Steamboat Springs or visit Rocky Mountain National Park for a more "controlled" wilderness experience.
However, for the outdoor enthusiasts, welcome to one of the biggest playgrounds you will ever experience! Spend the day navigating the Class Vs of The Narrows on the Clear Creek River or hiking through Maroon Bells while admiring the golden aspen leaves in the fall. Summit Mt. Elbert, Colorado's highest 14er at an elevation of 14,433 feet, or experience caving in Idaho Springs. Bike the Deer Creek trail in Crested Butte or take in a bird's eye view of God's creation by skydiving in Boulder. Opt for ice climbing on Glenwood Canyon's walls or snowshoe Saint Mary's Glacier. Experience winter camping at Kenosha Pass or carve the mountains at Copper, Breckenridge, Keystone, or Winter Park.
Whatever you choose to do, there's never a dull moment while living in the Mile High city!
