Getting away is easy in Colorado. Known for diverse landscapes, including breathtaking mountain views and bustling city life, Colorado has certainly lived up to its “Colorful Colorado” nickname. With nearly 5.6 million residents, this fast-growing state has become a Mecca for outdoor adventurers and nature lovers. Visitors can explore 41 state parks, as well as four national parks — Rocky Mountain, Mesa Verde, Great Sand Dunes and Black Canyon of the Gunnison, ranging from ancient ruins to wide valleys to 14,000-foot peaks. Denver, the capital city, is where you’ll find hip brewpubs, a historic train station and Empower Field at Mile High stadium, home of the Denver Broncos. Whether you are looking for nature to disconnect from technology, or seeking a taste of Colorado’s urban side, Colorado is well worth the trip.
