As the price of gas, hotels, and outdoor dining has increased, many people rethink their vacations as a stay. Now, instead of spending time in one place for a week, it may be just as fun to fill a list or a line of destinations that are close enough to drive but may not require a weekly value for your hard-earned vacation time. Colorado is the perfect venue for some of these theme-oriented destinations.
When it comes to the state of Mile Hai, most people think of mountains. In the lower forty-eight states, Colorado ranks first with peaks of over 14,000 feet. If you are a lighted type outdoors, then consider a break that includes climbing all fourteen. With over fifty of them in the state, they have to keep you busy for a while, unless you get the whole summer to play.
If you are looking for less ambitious pursuit of fun, walking tourism can only be on your promenade. And because of the mountains, one of the topics might be to climb to all the waterfalls in Colorado. Walking treks can range from a quarter mile from the nearby road to a night trip. You can estimate your trips based on the size and dynamics of your group.
One thing that's great about Colorado is its accessibility to nature and its beauty. The state makes it easy for you to plan your holiday through the twenty-five scenic paths, about half of which are designed as American roads, more than any other country. So load the family and get a drive. Some routes are located on highways, others require vehicles with four drive wheels, high-quality cars. So it may take several years to complete the task. Who said vacation and bucket lists should be easy?
While traveling with these scenic discs, you can try to complete another thematic idea by visiting all the state parks along the way. Camping is cheaper than the hotels and you will find many of the state parks that will help you appreciate all that Colorado has to offer. Also, along the way, you may want to visit all the ghost towns in Colorado. There are a lot and, contrary to the definition of some people, some still have few inhabitants. Nature lovers can often divide themselves into wildlife lovers, wildflower lovers or lovers of bones and stones. For the latter, fossils, petrified wood, dinosaur bones, ancient civilizations, caves and quarries are scattered in Colorado. You can list your Geopark Geopark list. There are many, but it may require a little digging. (The Purpose of Pun.)
For those of you who would like to spend a week on the beach, there is a soothing past time that has been in this health condition. One of the most popular is visiting all breweries and making some homemade and aromatic drinks. The real enthusiast will organize it to be in Denver in time for the Annual Beer Festival (usually October). If the tickets are sold as they do almost immediately, it just gives you an excuse to visit all the first-hand breweries.
So the next time you think of a destination, but want to do something different, think about Colorado. Whether you are dynamo and you have to climb a mountain because it is there or want to sit and try what's on the brink, it's a condition that can make you climb and get drunk for years to come.
