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.

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.
