  • A luxury saloon is a comfortable option for business trips and freeway driving.
  • If you're heading to a ski resort, a rugged 4x4 will really come into its own.

Visiting Colorado

Colorado boasts some of the USA's most sweepingly majesty scenery, from the Rocky Mountains to the east, the Great Plains to the west and the deserts, canyons and mesas to the south. Along the way you'll encounter glittering cities like Denver, Colorado Springs and Boulder that are jam-packed with attractions and activities.

The Rocky MountainNational Park

>With its pine-clad peaks soaring to over 14,000 feet, its herds of elk and remote lakes, the Rocky Mountain National Park is understandably one of Colorado's top tourist destinations. All of this beauty is only 90 miles or a two-hour road trip from Denver.

Take the Interstate 25 north out of the city, then turn west on State Highway 36. Be sure to stop off at Estes Park, which offers a great selection of eateries and bars.

Tip: To drive into the Rocky Mountain National Park, you have to pay a $20 entrance fee which covers you for seven days.

Skiing Resorts

Motoring west from Denver on Interstate 70 will bring you to a string of picturesque resorts, offering one stunning view after another, plus some of the best downhill skiing in the USA. First stop is Georgetown, once a rugged silver mining encampment. And that is just the beginning!

  • Step 1: Breckenridge

Turn off I-70 at Silverthorn onto State Highway Nine, and you'll soon reach Breckenridge, a ski resort also known for its fly-fishing and white water rafting.

  • Step 2: Aspen

Back on the I-70, swing south at Glenwood Springs to complete the 200 mile journey to Aspen, justifiably famous for its beautiful Maroon and North Maroon Peaks.

Important Cities in Colorado

If you can tear yourself away from all that gorgeous mountain scenery, it's well worth exploring Denver, Colorado Springs and smaller but just as memorable cities like Boulder.

Denver

Known as the Mile High City, Colorado's state capital offers a huge range of sights, entertainment and cultural attractions. It boasts a number of world-renowned museums and galleries such as DAM (the Denver Art Museum). It's also one of only 13 American cities to field teams in all four national sports (football, basketball, baseball and hockey) at major league level. In addition, it has a thriving restaurant and club scene centring around the city's hip Lower Downtown neighbourhood.

Colorado Springs

Set against the spectacular backdrop of Pikes Peak, Colorado Springs is home to colleges and universities as well as the United States Air Force Academy. It's 50-plus attractions include the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo, where visitors can see orangutans, gorillas and snow leopards among in its 140 acres of exhibits.

Boulder

Flanked to the west by the iconic sandstone formations known as the Flatirons, this city is popular with rock-climbers, who use it as a base for excursions to Eldorado Canyon State Park. It's a must for shoppers too thanks to the trendy boutiques in its sprawling Pearl Street Mall.

Cuisine, climate and children

Climate and temperatures

With its varied landscape, Colorado experiences extremes of weather from arid heat to biting cold. That said, a temperate climate prevails in the cities. December to March is the high season for snow sports lovers, while June to September is a popular time for hiking and camping. Spring is not so good for outdoors pursuits as the melting snow can lead to mud underfoot.

Colorado Cuisine

The food in Colorado shows a strong Mexican influence. You might start the day with a burrito for breakfast, then snack on a Western sandwich (with a filling of spicy ham omelette) for lunch. In the evening, try one of the award-winning local wines grown in the high-altitude vineyards of the Grand Valley or West Elks.

Colorado with children

Colorado is a veritable wonderland for children. Visiting the cities, they'll be spoilt for choice when it comes to theme parks, museums and zoos. Most resorts and nature parks offer programmes and activities tailored for young people and families, including mountain biking, rafting and horse-riding as well as skiing. For example, places like Chautauqua Park and Maroon Bells have short but still spectacular hikes suitable for little legs. Other popular attractions include the Overdrive Raceway in Colorado Springs, with its two-storey go-karting track, and the Royal Gorge Dinosaur Experience in Canon City, where kids can get hands-on with fossils from the Jurassic era.
