Summer Colorado Vacations

summer colorado vacationsBelieve it or not, Colorado stays open long after the snow melts in Aspen and the last snow bunny has gone home for the winter. In fact, there’s a whole new Colorado to enjoy while your ski gear dries off in the closet, and what better way to discover it all than planning some (several we’re sure) summer Colorado vacations? From the huge sky, to the frontier landscapes—and all the big events and attractions in between—you won’t look at summer vacation quite the same way again.

For the athletically inclined, a summer Colorado vacation offers everything you could possibly need to get the ticker pumping, and in every conceivable skill level. Maybe a hiking trip through Rocky Mountain National Park, fishing in some of the region’s most beautiful lakes, horseback riding along one of the hundreds of trails, or camping under the stars will fit the bill. Perhaps some mountain biking or white-knuckle rock climbing is what you’re after. Hunters and wilderness photography enthusiasts the world over flock (no pun intended) to the area to experience the bounty of wildlife Colorado has to offer, and knowledgeable guides are ready to put you in the thick of the action regardless of the type of shooting you’re interested in. If you really want to get the blood pumping, why not try a round (or ten) of golf at any of the challenging courses nearby? And, if you ever get tired of gravity, try some hot-air ballooning! Summer Colorado vacations can be as bold or as traditional as you like.

Those folks that would rather recline on their summer Colorado vacation will love to hear that life in the slow lane can be a ton of fun too. For starters, if you’re an art or natural history buff take a stroll through one of the fabulous galleries or museums. Explore the mountains on a real period locomotive or see historical sites like the Anazani cliff dwellings at your own pace—be it on foot, bike or in a car tour. Spend the evening enjoying fine dining at a world-class restaurant and then take in all of the thriving night life: concerts, comedy, art and music festivals or even some theatre at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Relax and pamper yourself with some spa treatments. Just make sure to leave yourself plenty of time for shopping.

So what are we waiting for? Check out today and start planning one of your many summer Colorado vacations!
