The Colorado Experience: Fun things to do

There is no shortage of mountain climbing activities in Colorado, so be prepared for some leg-burning fun. Mount Bierstadt stretches over 14,000 feet into the sky, but is one of the more easily scaled peaks in the state. Along its winding trails, you will be greeted with lush meadows and massive boulder fields. Pike’s Peak and Mount Evans may require a trip by car, depending on your physical health.

A daytrip to Mesa Verde is well deserved and equally exciting; inside this cliff are over 600 dwellings that long ago locals once called home. The Great Sand Dunes National Park is open all day every day, and is a great place to go sand surfing. As an added bonus, the views afforded of meteor showers from Star Dune are truly unforgettable.

Visiting Colorado? Here is some helpful advice

Keep alcohol consumption on the low end when touring Colorado, especially when mountain climbing. The high altitude means less oxygen, which makes people more prone to headaches, dizziness, and nausea. Keep a fresh supply of drinking water on hand for daytrips, and dress for the weather. The temperature can change suddenly in Colorado, so always wear layers.
