Red Rocks is the place we can mention first and is considered as one of the most famous places to visit here in Colorado, and this is because of its outdoor theater that is made entirely of stone, where the seats are arranged in a semi-circle, looking down at the beautiful stage. You will learn that some of the most famous concerts ever performed was in Red Rocks Amphitheater.
You might have seen it on your television, but seeing and being present there in person is a totally different experience. The acoustics of the place is so pure that if you had known about it, you will never want to see an indoor music performance again. And to further learn more about the theater, it can offer Easter sunrise service whatever is your religion, and that performers like the Beatles, Grateful Dead, Blues Traveler and Radiohead had staged here.
The next best thing to do in Colorado is in Picketwire Canyonlands located south of the town of La Junta where you can take a gander and hang out with dinosaurs. More than 1,000 dinosaur footprints are said to be found as you wander along while taking the educational trail in the place. Actual dinosaur bones and tracks can actually be seen in the town of Grand Junction where museums are displaying these. The whole state of Colorado was said to be underwater, and this contributed to the fact that fossils are common to be seen as you make your way around. Furthermore, there is a so-called dinosaur highway in the town of Morrison where you can drive along and be able to see tons of fossils.
The highest paved road in America is in Colorado, and this is another feature of the state especially if you like to drive. You can go to Mount Evans Scenic Byway which has a parking lot at 14,000 feet and you can take a walk up a trail that reaches at 14,264 feet.
It is fair to say that the best attractions in Colorado are its mountains and scenery which are great for those who love the outdoors.
The Arkansas River gets a true adventurer covered during months of June to September with its class 5 rapids that you can experience, and have later on a leisurely dinner through riverboat companies offering cruise.
Booking for a river adventure would be easy if you search for several rafting businesses, and ask if they offer great deals for the period.
When you are in Colorado, you can also step into the Old West by taking a historical train that follows the Cumbres Scenic Railroad in the town of Antonito and also there is a Georgetown Loop where cowboys once traveled.
