Winter will end in a couple of months, but you probably wish it would end tomorrow. If you’re the type of person who never goes on a holiday unless it involves water, your excitement is understandable.
Colorado is a great place to go on a holiday to see the sights, appreciate history and culture, and hit the water. If you’re ever here, don’t forget to keep these in your itinerary.
Molly Brown House Museum
Every year for more than 40 years, about 50,000 people visit this house at 1340 Pennsylvania Street in Denver, to pay tribute and learn more about the life and times of Molly Brown, who gained notice for surviving the Titanic tragedy, and renown for her role in fighting for the rights of women and the working class in the U.S. This is the house she shared with her husband, mining engineer J.J. Brown.
White Water Rafting
White water rafting trips in Colorado are world-famous. The Arkansas Headwaters Recreation Area is only one of the areas you can enjoy a trip aboard a raft down a breathtaking Rocky Mountain river. This is a perfect holiday treat for the entire family, or even a team building exercise for company executives and employees. There are different levels of difficulty, so you are free to choose the one that fits your purpose. Professionals will give you a pre-rafting demo and instruction, and provide you with the right gear to keep you safe, according to American Adventure Expeditions.
Can’t wait for the winter to be over before you go on holiday in Colorado? Head to Buena Vista—or “beautiful view” in Spanish—and see that it truly is a remarkable sight. Here you can ski at 8,000 feet of elevation, where the town sits. Ride a snowmobile or just a backpack and rediscover the closeness and wonder of nature. It’s healthy, fun, and won’t cost you a fortune.
These are only a few of the things you can do in Colorado. The area’s natural beauty and fun offerings might make you stay a bit longer, so pack more than an overnight bag.
