It’s no wonder that Colorado is among the most sought-after states in America to consider moving to. Have you set aside time to go through and hit to see what the state offers?
From the stunning beauty of the mountains of Southwest Colorado has to offer and the abundance of wildlife across Colorado, we hope to experience everything before the big man upstairs calls our name.
Here is the list of things to do in Colorado before you die:
Take a Hike to Hanging Lake
Hanging Lake is not only one of the most talked-about hikes in Colorado. It’s also among the most talked-about hikes in the entire country. The stunning turquoise lake will awe you when your eyes are fixed on the Lake, and the tranquility and peace make you feel as if you’re in a different world. The Lake is located about 10 miles to the east of Glenwood Springs.
Watch a Concert at Red Rocks
The bands and artists that play in the arena of Red Rocks all talk about Red Rocks being the highest point of their careers. Being a fan of some shows at the venue, I’ll also add that there’s no other place anywhere in the world that can compare to it if you happen to attend on a clear night, with no clouds over the sky that makes the performance you’re witnessing that much more impressive.
Take a Drive-Up Old Fall River Road
I made my first journey along Old Fall River Road this last summer, having had been terrified of heights for several years. Are there some exciting hairpin turns and switchbacks? Most definitely. The views and surroundings you experience are unlike any other, and I’ve even put the climb to the top of Old Fall River Road a one-notch higher than the climb through Trail Ridge Road. This summer (or the following), make this a part of your list of things to do. You’ll be delighted.
Take a Selfie at the Maroon Bells
Maroon Bells is among the most famous scenic locations in the entire state, and if you’ve not taken the opportunity to take photos here, be sure to do it. The best time of year to visit the Maroon Bells is situated about 10 miles to the west of Aspen.
Purchase one Dozen Donuts from Voodoo Doughnuts
When I first visited the Voodoo Doughnut shop, I was amazed. The shop is awash with fantastic and bizarre doughnuts all day long. Be prepared when you see a line to the door at 11 p.m. on a Tuesday. No matter if you think they’re the most delicious doughnuts you’ve ever tasted, it is a must to purchase one. It’s something you should put on your bucket list.
Go to a Denver Bronco Game
No matter if you’re a Broncos fan or not, there’s nothing better than watching one of their games live in person. The atmosphere is among many of the most discussed aspects of the NFL, and there’s the reason it’s considered one of the most difficult stadiums for teams on the road to be a part of. The tickets can cost you a bit; however, save your cash and head to the stadium. It’s well worth it!
Sled Down the Great Sand Dunes
Great Sand Dunes National Park is a stunning wonder, and the tale of how sand is in this particular spot in Colorado is still awe-inspiring. However, this is one of the few locations in Colorado where you can go sledding all year. Get yourself a sled, perhaps a ski, and try it. Not only is it thrilling and thrilling, but the sights you can see are equally spectacular.
Enjoy your favorite Stars at Night from Rocky Mountain National Park
Quiet. No light pollution. Only you and the stars, 10,000 meters above the sea. And we’re almost sure that you’ll spot at the very least one shooting star.
Take in a Natural Hot Spring
My first experience of walking into the natural hot springs felt like I was entering another level of peace. There are a lot of hot springs across the state to explore, offering different degrees of warmth in each. Try it at any time during the season!
See the Buffalo Roam at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal Wildlife Refuge
Buffalo is among the most magnificent animals that you can find in America. You have the chance to be up close and intimate with buffalo on the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. While many other species you might encounter during your travels, the buffalo will amaze you at their speed and agility around the landscape.
