An awesome place : Colorado

Colorado attractions, top destinations selection and the top boutique inn? The Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad, in Southern Colorado, is a coal-fired, steam-powered train just like those that ran throughout the state during the days of cowboys and settlers over 100 years ago. The trains takes visitors through the remote beauty of the San Juan National Forest. There are a variety of packages available. Dinosaur National Monument, on the northern border between Colorado and Utah, is an incredible testament to the natural and geological history of Colorado. Visitors can see over 1,500 fossils on display on the cliff face inside the Quarry Exhibit Hall. There are also petroglyphs of lost cultures and the abandoned homesteads of early settlers. For the adventurers, there are camping and whitewater rafting opportunities.

Colorado boasts some of the most beautiful wildernesses and mountain ranges. Rich in Wild West stories and internationally known for its wildlife and outdoor activities, the state is also home to popular cities such as Denver that offer many museums and art for those who prefer cities to the outdoors. Whether you are a mountain climber and art lover, there is something here in Colorado for everyone.

A full, southern style breakfast can be found at Sassafras. Definitely order the Beignets and the Hot Sassafras Tea, if you’re not a coffee lover. But, if you’re like us, you prefer a late morning. Head on over to Abejas for brunch on Saturday and Sunday! Make a reservation, trust us. They have a seasonal menu that will not disappoint. Lunch is a no-brainer at Thai Gold. The lunch special is so much food! The restaurant has a great outdoor area and it’s across the street from the inn! Yes, please!! Indulge is definitely our favorite happy hour in town. The food is chef driven and unique and the wine is perfectly paired! We love the Ahi Tuna Guacamole, let them pick a great wine to go with it!! Discover more info at Hotel rooms in Golden CO.

At 14,115 feet in elevation, Pikes Peak, in Pike National Forest, is one of the Southwest’s famous “fourteeners,” a reference to mountains that stand over 14,000 feet. The snow-capped peak is easily recognizable from the nearby town of Colorado Springs. This is one of the most visited mountains in the world, second only to Mt. Fuji. Unlike many mountain peaks that are inaccessible to the average person, you can drive to the summit of Pikes Peak on the Pikes Peak Highway, off highway 24, west of Colorado Springs. Travel time is about 1.5 hours. Alternatively, you can take the Pikes Peak Cog Railway for a scenic 8.9-mile trip, with a round-trip time of just over three hours. In addition to simply appreciating the views from the top, the area offers a range of recreational opportunities. In the vicinity are numerous hiking trails, as well as mountain biking areas and opportunities for fishing in reservoirs.
