Visit Colorado

Bordered by Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, New Mexico, Utah, and Arizona, Colorado is one of the Mountain States, encompassing most of the southern Rocky Mountains. It is well known for its diverse geography, which includes rivers, canyons, sand dunes, forests, alpine mountains, and cosmopolitan cities, such as Denver: the capital and most populous city. The Centennial State is famous for its ski resorts and spectacular slopes, but it offers plenty of recreation for the four seasons.

From the Front Range to the southern valley, there is plenty to enjoy in Colorado. Pikes Peak is the most-visited mountain in North America and can be reached hiking, biking, driving, or by train. Colorado has 81 waterfalls, but a firm visitors’ favorite is Helen Hunt Falls. Eldorado Canyon State Park is the perfect place for rock climbing, while Mesa Verde National Park is home to the best-preserved Pueblo sites in the U.S. Spectacular slopes and entertaining winter activities can be found at the famous ski resort town of Aspen.

Wild West History can be seen at Bent’s Old Fort and mining towns, such as Breckenridge and Central City.

Best time of year to visit Colorado

Although local areas are affected by differences in elevation and orientation of mountains and valleys, the state offers pleasant conditions on both hot and cold days.
