Default Colorado Travel Guide

Colorado travel guide

A Google search of the word 'Colorado' reveals a list of websites
ranging from the website of the Government of Colorado to the websites
of various educational institutions and universities. Among the diverse
tourism websites mentioned, the one that catches your eye is
visitcolorado4less.com. A click on the link fills your screen with
beautiful ice capped peaks of Colorado. A brief overview of the website
further assures the browser that he is at the right web link. The
website offers exhaustive information about the State which is vaguely
situated in Central USA.

The name Colorado traces its genesis to Spanish' color red. The
Centennial State or Colorful Colorado, as it is commonly called, has
Denver as its capital.

Colorado is essentially famous for its winter sports, but it seems to
cater to everyone's hobbies. Fishing, skiing, rafting, rock climbing,
camping, hiking, museums, historic sites - you find it all here.
Apart from its scenic beauty Colorado has much more to offer.

The state has numerous mountains, the highest peak being Mt. Elbert. It
is also the home of the Rocky Mountains. Mountaineering becomes
especially delightful during spring season when wild flowers are in
full bloom. There is also a Colorado Mountain Club which is dedicated
solely to the mountain activities. Colorado also has 8000 miles of
rivers, offering water activities all over the state. As a result the
first water garden society in the world has been founded here. The
scenic beauty of Colorado is enhanced by the fact that water is
virtually present everywhere. The best way to appreciate this beauty is
through camping and horse riding.

Leaving out the adventurers, Colorado offers a lot to the historians
and the philosophers. There is a Colorado Shakespeare Festival
organized annually in which hundreds of people gather together to
produce the various Shakespeare classics. Dotted with ghost towns and
mining sites, the state has enough history available to satisfy
everyone's intellectual appetite. Other attractions include the
Colorado Brewer's Festivals and numerous happening casinos.

If one is on a holiday with the entire family, he may visit the
Butterfly Pavilion and Insect Center which is an artificial shelter of
numerous insects like centipedes and beautiful butterflies. Other
venues can be the Cave of Winds in which one can see the stalactite and
stalagmite formation, Colorado Gators which homes alligators,
Krabloonik - a kennel of sled dogs and Rock Canyon Water Slide which
is a mini water park.. Tiny Town and Railroad are especially liked by
children. Started in 1915, this children attraction includes 100 of
miniature buildings which includes a toy store, a bank and a church. An
open steam train gives a tour of this Tiny Town.

Shopping is the ultimate activity which completes a holiday. And so we
have Denver and Aspen the shopping hubs of Colorado. While both are
known for its antiques, there are other avenues to indulge in as well.
Colorado is also saturated with boarding houses and lodges, each famous
for its own experiences. Accommodation is available of every cost,
class and style. The Cottonwood Cove ranch is a cozy niche that offers
a variety of outdoor activities and is good for fishing. Snowmass
Village is a world class ski resort which offers plenty of summer
activities as well. Another unique experience is the Vista Verde which
is set in wilderness.
With all these activities to do teamed with a comfortable stay,
Colorado is the decisive destination where you should head to.
