A Colorado vacation is all about doing what you’ve always wanted to do. Climb a mountain, tour a farmer’s market or enjoy the effervescent bubbles of a soothing hot spring. Pay a visit to Pikes Peak, travel through a city center or discover the crimson-colored sandstone of an ancient valley. You’ll no doubt find more to do here than your time off will allow, but why not try to fit it all in anyway?
Colorado offers experiences you expect, such as mountain climbing, whitewater rafting, and downhill skiing. But it also offers a few quirkier adventures. Become a fighter pilot for a day. Jump off the world's highest suspension bridge. Drift aloft over green valleys and snowy ridges. Or take part in a real cattle drive. This isn't your typical vacation fare - it's a true Colorado adventure, experiences that get your nerves tingling and your heart pumping. The thrill you and your family have been looking for is waiting in Colorado.
With 42 state parks and more than 4,000 campsites throughout the state, Colorado is one of the best places in the world to hike or walk.

Throughout many parts of Colorado, choice grapes cling to carefully tended vines. The state’s vintners are proud to show off their award-winning bouquets of flavor and engage you in a conversation about their creations. Hundreds of microbreweries also dot the state with their truly inspired fermentations. Your cup will run over at any of Colorado’s wineries and breweries. Colorado is immutably scenic, making each trip a discovery of a new wonder.
