Colorado Places to see & visit

The majestic Rocky Mountains, the deserts of the Colorado Plateau, and the prairielands of the Great Plains are just a few of the astonishing geographical landmarks that make up the great state of Colorado.  In the early 19th Century, the area that is now Colorado was bought by the United States from France in the Louisiana Purchase and since then has been attracting people of all kinds.  Colorado has a lot to be proud of with the bustling metropolises of Denver, 13 National Parks, 4 major rivers, 57 mountains that reach over 14,000 ft, and tons of beautiful scenery that will satisfy anyone’s need for adventure.

Visit the Colorado places where the Pikes Peak Gold Rush began in historic Idaho Springs and try panning for gold in the towering walls of Clear Creek Canyon.  Come check out Breckenridge Ski Resort and the highest chairlift in North America.  The Imperial Express Superchair reaches just 2 feet under 13,000 ft and provides access to world class skiing and snowboarding terrain.  Relax in one of the largest and hottest geothermal pools that reaches deepest of over 1,500 ft in the quiet town of Pagosa Springs. 

Make a reservation at the historic Hotel Colorado in Glenwood Springs and you may stay in the same room as a former president!  Some famous guests of this hotel include Presidents Theodore Roosevelt, William Howard Taft, and Herbert Hoover, Chicago gangsters Al Capone and Diamond Jack Alterie, and Titanic survivor The Unsinkable Molly Brown.  But be careful, rumor has it the hotel is also haunted! Wherever your journey to Colorado takes you, you are sure to leave with many memories that will last a lifetime and keep you coming back again and again!
