Colorado Travel Guide 

Colorado is a year-round destination for nature lovers and adventure seekers of all levels. Unlike many states in the US, Colorado’s high tourist season is during the winter months. Visitors booking flights to Colorado during this time have a soft-spot for skiing, snow-boarding and cold-weather sports. But there is more to Colorado than bunny slopes and black diamonds. Colorado’s vast parkland provides an opportunity for tourists to go mountain biking, fishing, horseback riding, kayaking, white water rafting or just enjoy some rest and relaxation at one of its many top-rated resorts.

The western part of the state is comprised of beautiful remote desert canyons and the archaeological remnants of the cliff cities left by an ancient civilization at Mesa Verde National Park – a stark contrast to the alpine wonders that attract most visitors to Colorado.

No matter what your reason for booking flights to Colorado, you’re sure to leave the state with memories of spacious skies and purple mountains majesty.

What’s the weather like in Colorado?

Coloradans claim their weather is perfect. The state averages 296 sunny days a year. There isn’t much precipitation in the lower elevations, but there are tremendous amounts of snow in the mountains. Winter starts in late November and, depending on the snow depth, lasts into April. In Denver and Colorado Springs, summer days are hot and dry and the evenings mild. Summer comes to the mountains in June, and the warm weather lasts until mid-September. Winter hits around mid-November, though snowstorms can start in the mountains in September. The climate from one area to another can be dramatically different due to the difference in elevation and the orientation of mountain ranges and valleys.

How long is the flight to Colorado?

When you fly out of Miami or New York City, you generally arrive in Colorado in just under 4 hours. Flights from Dallas typically take right under 2 hours, while those departing from Chicago arrive in just over 2 hours. These time windows don’t include time you spend taxiing before take off or after landing at your destination.

If you’re planning a spring trip, include T-shirts, light fleece pullovers, jeans, shorts, a rain jacket and comfortable, preferably water-resistant shoes.

Getting to and around Colorado

Denver is a transportation hub for Colorado, both for entering and leaving the state – and for finding transportation to other Colorado destinations. For a stay in Denver, you can rely on public transportation. Taxis and shuttles are also available in other large cities and towns. To help you get around the state, there are commuter airlines and shuttle buses from the Denver airport. Amtrak has a couple of routes through the state, and some say the Durango and Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad in the southwest is a must-see destination.

Getting around the state usually involves a car to some extent, and with visitor centers statewide, you have little trouble getting directions and tips on getting from one place to another.

A world-renowned destination for cyclists, interstate highway shoulders are open to cyclists (except in urban areas). The mountain roads are more demanding, and one of the most popular and challenging routes is the Million Dollar Highway.

 Colorado has a diverse array of historic sites, modern attractions and natural destinations, so where you go and what you do really depends on your interest. If you want to learn more about the state’s history, start your exploration at the Mesa Verde State Park, where you can view ancient cliff dwellings, or the Bachelor Syracuse Mine, which presents a realistic depiction of a 19th-century mining camp. To get an authentic taste of the past, hop a ride on the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, which takes travelers the 46 miles from Antonito, Colorado and Chama, New Mexico, and back again daily. The Hidee Gold Mine in Central City and Old Hundred Gold Mine in Silverton give tours of these historic sites and let you pan mine for your own nugget.

If you want to enjoy a more modern vacation, Colorado has you covered. Elitch Gardens Theme Park in Denver has roller coasters and other exciting rides to get your blood pumping, and it also has an attached water park when you want to cool things down.

Some other activities include mountain climbing Mount Evans and snowmobiling through Rocky Mountain National Park. Fishermen flock to the Frying Pan River, while birders head to Pueblo Lake State Park to catch a glimpse of resident bald eagles. No matter your preferences, when it comes to travel, Colorado truly has something for everyone. 

Tips for your stay in Colorado

  • The Rocky Mountains of Colorado contain some of the greatest skiing to be had anywhere in North America.
  • Most popular of all resorts is Aspen, with access to four main ski areas. Even if you’re not a ski-bunny, consider booking Colorado flights to Aspen in the summertime, when a host of activities can be enjoyed against a spectacular backdrop.  The Independence Pass that connects Aspen to Denver is only open in the summer months and is an unmissable drive with stunning views of the surrounding mountains.
  • Colorado’s capital, Denver is known as the “Mile High City” as it is situated at an altitude of 5,280 feet above sea level. It is also the location in which more US money is made than anywhere else worldwide, thanks to the Denver Mint. The Mint is open for tours, which can be booked free of charge from the reservation center on Colfax Avenue.
  • The Royal Gorge Bridge is the highest suspension bridge in the world. Located across the gorge in Canon City, the bridge is a quarter of a mile long with a main span of 880ft. The Royal Gorge Bridge and Park in the surrounding area also houses the world’s steepest incline railway, an aerial tram, a skycoaster and the silver rock railway.
  • Colorado Springs is the state’s second city and home to the “Garden of the Gods”. The public park is filled with giant red sandstone “hogsback” formations, so called because they resemble the backs of pigs. The park is popular with rock climbers as well as sightseers.
  • Colorado was once lucrative for the gold rush and the fur trade. Though both occupations have since died out, you can still find out about the trades at some excellent museums in the state. The Argo Gold Mine and Mill in Idaho Springs holds tours of the Argo tunnel and mine as well as lessons in gold panning.
  • Fort Vasquez Museum in Platteville is the site of an 1835 fur-trading fort, where exhibitions interpret the fur-trade era.
  • Have dinner in a 1930s Colorado ranch – Keystone Ranch. The superb restaurant serves a delicious five-course dinner.
  • Insider travel tip: Take an extra suitcase with you on your Colorado flight – you’ll need it if you’re staying in Vail. Vail is best known as one of the top ski destinations in America. But if you need a break from the slopes, head straight to Vail’s town center where the shopping is exquisite.
