Colorado is best known as the home of the Rocky Mountains. And while that’s not the only thing to see in Colorado, it also, sort of, is. When you’re choosing to holiday in the state it’s nice to know that they have legalized Marijuana and were constituted exactly 100 years after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, but ultimately – where those mountains at?
There are some marvelous areas of cultural and historical significance in the state, Cliff Palace and Balcony House in the Mesa Verde National Park are some of them, but you will need to pull yourself away from the mountains to see them. That’s not an indictment of the rest of the state, but the Rocky Mountains are truly magnificent to see.
A barrier wall nature has thrown up to separate east from west, the landscape of the Rocky’s is raw, brutal and beautiful at the same time. The vast age of the America’s is on display when standing in the shadow of those mountains. They are the source of incredible excitement and adventure, and yet capable of providing serenity and stillness at a moment’s notice.
It’s not real surprise then that when you run through the list below you will see every resort selected has been established to, in some way, facilitate the mountain experience.
Let’s have a look at the best resorts in Colorado:
