Summer is here and it is the perfect time for those outdoor activities. Colorado is a state with endless possibilities when it comes to summer fun. Here are a few thing you and your family can enjoy!
Whether your goal is “Summit or Bust” up the side of a fourteeners or a lazy creekside amble, Colorado has hundreds of miles of hiking trails that are just your speed. Colorado trails are easy to access and lead through diverse landscapes — wildflower meadows, colorful cliffs and canyons, swaying grasslands, rushing waterfalls and much more.
There’s no better way to get close to Colorado’s abundant wilderness areas than by making one of its campgrounds home, either in a tent or a yurt, under the stars or in a fully loaded RV park. Check in for the night in our 41 Colorado State Parks, on more than 22 million acres of national forests or in hundreds of private campgrounds.
Colorado may be landlocked, but we still have shorelines. On thousands of acres of water, boaters find solace traveling through mountain basins or the deep, blue-water oases on plains of eastern Colorado.
At Colorado’s high altitude, where the air is thin and dry, everyone’s golf ball flies farther and straighter. This is likely one of the reasons so many golfers are drawn to the state. The only-in-Colorado mountain backdrops, a variety of layouts and companies that offer packaged golf tours are another.
When it comes to summer in Colorado these are a few activities you can enjoy, but there are plenty more. From whitewater rafting, horseback riding or kayaking, there is a perfect fit for everyone. Make sure and take advantage of these next few months and get out into beautiful Colorado!
