Colorado holidays take you into the heart of the western United States. Though the mountainous landscape is a highlight for trekkers, cyclists and skiers, Colorado is also home to unique vineyards, sand dunes and Pueblo cave dwellings. If you want to balance your outdoor explorations with a more urban energy, the cities of Boulder and Denver have much to offer in cultural attractions.
Planning for Colorado Holidays
Colorado is located in the Mountain Time Zone (UTC-7) and its climate is very diverse due to its diverse geography, from mountains to desert. International arrivals land at Denver International Airport, with many available domestic flights. Colorado holidays can be enjoyed at any time of the year, as each distinct season has something unique to offer. Seasonal temperatures vary greatly, especially during the fickle springtime, so it is important to have warm clothing or something suitable for the rain. Winter is a popular time to enjoy the snow capped mountains by skiing or snowboarding, autumn yields sensational changing colours and summer is a perfect time for hiking and enjoying the urban nightlife.
No matter the season, Colorado holidays should include a relaxing visit to the state’s famous mineral hot springs, such as Glenwood Springs, which were once frequented by U.S. President Theodore Roosevelt. Colorado also offers the chance to explore the Santa Fe National Historic Trail through the Eastern Plains, evocative of the age of the Wild West. Archaeological highlights can be found at the Canyons of the Ancients National Monument. For urban adventures, Denver is known for its sleek modern cityscape, museums and galleries, including the iconic Frederic C. Hamilton building at the Denver Art Museum. Boulder offers a smaller, more charming university town environment, with pedestrian friendly boutiques along Pearl Street Mall and winding creek-side pathways.
