Located in the western United States, Colorado is home to the stunning Rocky Mountains, from which the capital city of Denver gets its nickname—“the Mile-High City”. From the top of some famous peaks you can look out over the rolling Great Plains.
Year-round, “the Centennial State” offers the perfect balance of secluded getaway—think ski trips to Aspen or hiking near Lake Estes—and popular hot spots, like the Telluride Film Festival and Denver’s smashing nightlife. So scoop up the savings on Colorado package deals and pack your hiking boots!
Take a hike, mate. Well, actually, you’ll need a way to get around, so book one of Wotif’s Denver car hire deals and make sure you have room for rock-climbing gear.
Warm up to the Great Outdoors at the Denver Botanic Gardens, just southeast of the city centre and within walking distance to the Denver Zoo and the Denver Museum of Nature & Science. Spend a day or two exploring the art and history museums in the Capitol Hill and LODO neighbourhoods.
Climb your first Rocky at Mount Evans, a 1.5-hour drive west of downtown. If you want to head to Aspen, keep on driving till you get to Maroon Bells Lake and mountain range—you’ll recognise it as the most photographed landscape in the US!
While you’re there in the city named after trees, you may get to rub shoulders with the rich and famous. If you miss the celebs in Aspen, there’s always the film fest in Telluride, and you can take a gondola ride over the ski slopes in any season. There’s so much more to do on your Colorado holiday, so start planning!
While you’re in Aspen, treasure hunt through fancy boutiques. Are you after something more artistic? Denver has attracted heaps of aspiring artists and entrepreneurs who have set up shop downtown. Spend the arvo at Larimer Square, which was built over the site of Colorado’s first mining camp. Book some sweet deals on Colorado packages and save for Denver’s modern-day sparkle (psst—there’s a champagne bar!).
In Colorado, it’s not food if it’s not served with a local craft beer. As for the food, Colorado is also climbing the ranks of the barbecue world, and that same scrappy spirit that built its cities is on display in creative comfort cuisine.
You can’t go wrong after dark. Linger at the brew pubs in Denver and Fort Collins or wander out to Boulder or Colorado Springs. Venues cater to the outdoor adventurers, yes, but they’re climber-chic. Look for renovated warehouse bars and dance clubs. In smaller resort cities like Aspen and Telluride, you can cross bottle service in the Rockies off your bucket list!
