      /

    Outdoor recreation includes cycling, rock climbing, hiking, fishing, hot air ballooning, horse back riding, golfing and so much more.

    In winter skiing at Eldora Montain resort is just a short 30 minute drive away up the scenic Boulder Canyon.

    Pearl Street Mall is Boulder’s heart and soul –where locals and visitors stroll among the shops and historic storefronts and dine in the delightful restaurants.

    You have to see the Flatirons, which are slanting, massive slabs of sandstone that form Boulder’s backdrop from any angle.

    Boulder has been "beer central" for decades, and now wineries and distilleries are among the dozens of reasons to say "cheers" in Boulder. Take a driving or walking tour or climb aboard the Boulder Brew Bus for behind-the-scenes tastings at multiple breweries.

    • Top Tip 1

      Even if you're not a skier, take a gondola ride to the top of Beaver Creek Mountain at any time of year. The views will take your breath away.

    • Top Tip 2

      Take the Durango - Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, but just do it one way (and take the motorcoach back the other way). The train journey takes around four hours and the coach journey back is just over an hour.

    • Top Tip 3

      Another one for train buffs is the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad which travels between Antonito in southern Colorado and Chama in northern New Mexico.

    • Top Tip 4

      Visit the Four Corners, where you can have a foot and hand in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah and Arizona - all at the same time.

    • Top Tip 5

      If you're in western Colorado make sure you visit Black Canyon at the Gunnison National Monument. It’s a hidden gem and well worth a visit.

    • Top Tip 6

      Looking for somewhere to have lunch in Denver? Check out Marlowe's Restaurant; it’s a deservedly popular spot with the locals for both lunch and dinner.

    • Top Tip 7

      Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre, just 15 miles west of Denver, is a world famous outdoor venue, with excellent hiking and biking trails as well as the only naturally-occurring, acoustically-perfect amphitheatre in the world.

    • Top Tip 8

      Visit Colorado National Monument near Grand Junction, voted one of the ten best places for solitude in the US. Include the 23-mile scenic Rim Rock Drive in your itinerary. If you're going to hike in the area, be aware that midges can be a nuisance from mid May to mid July, so take some repellent.
