Colorado Cities

If you’re a  partier, head to Miami. For fashion junkies, New York tops your list. Risk takers flock to Las Vegas. And those who love nature should visit Colorado.

Here are some Colorado cities that will get you outside and enjoying our natural surroundings.

Camera Ready

A top choice during warm or cold weather, Aspen offers the perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts to get their fill of the great outdoors.

Charge your cameras for your visit to the Maroon Bells. I won’t spoil the surprise with too many details, but this attraction should top your to-do list. Book your stay at The Little Nell for breathtaking scenery and luxury accommodations.

Many rooms come standard with balconies and mountain views, giving guests a breath-taking visual experience.

Take a Hike

Hiking is undoubtedly the national pastime of Boulder, Colorado.

The Flatirons, a flat-sided mountain range that looks spectacular both from far away and up close, offers scenic hiking and picnic locations.

For good hikes closer to town visit Chautauqua. The on-site visitors center can help you choose the right trail for your needs.

St. Julien Hotel and Spa is a favorite hotel for visitors to Boulder. Enjoy comfortable rooms, inspired dining, and sensual spa offerings during your stay at this location.

Nature at its Finest

Colorado Springs offers several park and forest areas for those who enjoy their physical fitness with a side of nature.

Drive, bike, or hike through the Garden of the Gods, a group of balanced rock formations that will leave you in awe. Pikes Peak gives visitors another reason to say “wow” and pull out their selfie-sticks. Take the cog train up the mountain to explore at a leisurely pace.

Stay at the Garden of the Gods Club and Resort for unbeatable value in Colorado Springs.

Unlimited Activities

It’s not hard to find beauty in Fort Collins. You’ll see it no matter how you choose to spend your time in this outdoorsy paradise. Get out on the water at Horsetooth Mountain Open Space for adventures in stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking, and canoeing.

For adult fun, stop by New Belgium Brewery for a tour, history lesson, and brew samples of this hometown favorite.

Make your reservations at the Homewood Suites by Hilton Fort Collins for stress-free lodging. You’ll get a large comfortable room, unparalleled customer service, and two meals daily served Monday through Friday.

Snow-Covered Retreat

Don’t hold your breath while searching for low-cost lodging in Vail. With stunning views, luxury resorts, and world-class skiing, accommodations in this area rarely drop to budget levels.

Splurge on a vacation if you’re into winter sports and nature activities. Vail Mountain Resort is the place to enjoy the slopes for skiers of all levels.

If you visit during the warmer months, head over to the Betty Ford Alpine Gardens for beautiful scenery and colorful flora. Tivoli Lodge is an acclaimed Vail favorite among new and repeat visitors alike.
