Welcome to Colorado
Colorado serves up peak experiences for folks looking to explore the American West. Whether you want to hike through spellbinding landscapes, carve some powdery slopes, or let loose in culturally and historically rich cities, you’ll find there’s no shortage of excitement in the Centennial State.
Simply want to go for a cruise? Hitting the water in a vessel is a breeze. From Grand Lake to the Blue Mesa Reservoir to the 150-mile-long Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area, boaters have plenty of choices when it comes to finding a spot to launch their craft.
Stunning Scenery and Blasts from the Past
Home to shimmering alpine lakes, lush forests and over a hundred soaring mountain peaks, it’s no wonder Rocky Mountain National Park is one of the most beloved parks in America. Cruise along the Trail Ridge Road for an unforgettable scenic drive, or stop along the way to take advantage of the park’s extensive network of hiking trails. Wildlife is abundant here, too, so keep your eyes peeled for deer, elk, bighorn sheep, foxes and more.
Year-round Fishing and Hunting
Featuring over 2,000 lakes and 8,000 miles of rivers, anglers will have no trouble finding excellent fishing spots. Fishing enthusiasts in search of trout will find plenty of it in Fryingpan River, while walleye and smallmouth bass teem in the Horsetooth Reservoir, Boyd Lake State Park and Carter Lake. Hunters will get the opportunity to bag whitetail deer in the grasslands, and even mule deer and elk in the mountains.
