Colorado has long been the favored getaway for those who prefer cooler climates and higher altitudes. Also known as the Centennial State, Colorado has gained massive popularity for its breathtaking mountainous scenes and rich history.
Food enthusiasts will delight in a luxury vacation spent in Colorado, as the state boasts myriad culinary delights that are sure to please any palette. Dishes are primarily composed of the local Rocky Mountain cuisine, some Southwest cuisine, and a little bit of Mexican cuisine – offering visitors an authentic and diverse cultural experience. If you time your trip right, you can even take part in the festivities of the Food & Wine Classic. These are held every June in Aspen, Colorado. Come winter time, however, Aspen becomes a wonderland where people from all over the world enjoy the cold and snow at the town’s top luxury resorts.
Another place that can’t be overlooked is the municipality of Boulder. This culinary powerhouse of a town has been crowned by Bon Appetit as “America’s Foodiest Town of 2010.” Nevertheless, it also has its fair share of cultural tourist spots. While here, you can take the Celestial Seasonings Tour and spend an afternoon at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art before capping it all off with a night of music and wine. Boulder is also near the Rocky Mountain National Park, where you can enjoy natural vistas and rid yourself of all the stresses of the modern world. Lastly, a trip to the Trail Ridge Road offers lovely trails for a quick hiking excursion.
The state’s capital of Denver is a hot bed for cultural attractions, drawing an abundance of tourists to the city every year. These include the Denver Art Museum, the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Black American West Museum, and the famed Botanic Gardens. If you’ve brought the entire family, make sure to pay a visit to Confluence Park and ride the Platte River Trolley. This family friendly destination is also home to the Children’s Museum or at the Downtown Aquarium. Lastly, don’t forget to visit the Denver Zoo—the first zoo in the USA to use natural enclosures instead of cages.
