Fun Places to Go This Summer
From ghost towns and gold mines to waterfalls and mountain peaks, Colorado is full of cool things to see during the warmer months. You can drive to the top of a 14er mountain or find your way to a backcountry swimming hole. Maybe your bucket list includes a Rockies game in Denver or a whitewater rafting adventure on the Dolores River. Scroll on to tell us about it.
Colorado's Most Popular Bucket List Destination
How many people will admit they live in Colorado but have never been to Rocky Mountain National Park? What about Red Rocks Amphitheater? Both destinations are two of the most popular places people visit in Colorado. RMNP gets around 4.5 million visitors each year, and Red Rocks gets around 1.5 million guests. If you have never been to either one, you really should go for one or both this summer.
