Since the price of gas, hotels and meals has risen, many people have reassessed their holidays as stays. Instead of spending time in one place per week, it may be just as fun to add a list or loop of goals that are close enough to bring you, but may not require the weekly value of your hard earned vacation. time. Colorado is the ideal place to meet some of these themed destinations.
As for the status of Mile High, most people think of the mountains. In the lower forty-eight states, Colorado ranks the number one in peaks with altitude above 14,000 feet. If you are an avid outdoor type, then consider a vacation that includes climbing all fourteeners. With over fifty of them in a state that should keep you busy for a while if you don't play all summer.
If you're looking for a less ambitious pursuit of entertainment, hiking can only be in your aisle. And because of the mountain, one of the themes can be a trip to all Colorado waterfalls. Trips can range from a quarter mile from the nearby road to night camping. You can measure your trips by the size and dynamics of your group.
One thing that is great in Colorado is its approach to nature and its beauty. The state has made it easier for you to plan your holiday over twenty-five picturesque paths, of which about half are also designed as trips to America, more than any other state. So load up your family and take your ride. Some roads are located along roads, while others require four-wheel drive, high-clearance vehicles. It may take several years for you to complete the task. Who said holidays and bucket lists should be easy?
When sailing through these scenic drives, you can try to complete the next theme by visiting all the state parks on the way. Camping is cheaper than hotels and you will find many state parks to help you appreciate everything Colorado has to offer. Also along the way, you may want to visit all the ghost towns in Colorado. There are quite a few of them and, unlike the definition of some people, it still has several residents.
Nature lovers can often be divided into wildlife lovers, wild flower lovers or bone and stone lovers. For the latter, fossils, petrified wood, bone dinosaur, ancient civilizations, caves and quarries are scattered across Colorado. You can name your location list for a Geological Interest site. There are many, but it may require a little digging. (Pun designated.)
For those of you who like to spend a week on the beach, past times have calmed down in this health-oriented state. One of the most popular is a visit to all breweries and participation in some home and fresh brews. A true enthusiast will ensure that they are in Denver for the annual Big American Beer Festival (usually October). If the tickets sell out, just like almost immediately, it gives you an excuse to visit all the breweries first hand.
So the next time you're thinking about a goal, but you want to do something a little different, I think Colorado. Whether you are a dynamo and you have to climb a mountain because it is there, or whether you would like to sit and taste what is on the tap, it is one state that can keep you climbing and nearby.
