Hike the Emerald Lake Trail in Rocky Mountain National Park

The short hike along the Emerald Lake Trail is framed by mountains and alpine water in Nymph Lake, Dream Lake, and Emerald Lake. You can add a mile-long hike to Lake Hayiaha to enjoy even more of the Rocky Mountain beauty.

Hike Hanging Lake in Glenwood Canyon

Watch the mineral-rich springs cascade down the cliffs into the teal water of Hanging Lake as you hike through Glenwood Canyon. The distinctive geologic formation and rare flora give the feeling of being in a fairy tale.

Drive Over Trail Ridge Road

Traveling through Rocky Mountain National Park, the drive from Estes Park to Grand Lake is among the most beautiful in the country. Ascending approximately 12,200 feet in elevation, the drive provides panoramic views of the mountains and valleys.

Celebrate the Holidays in Vail

The world-class ski slopes and charming atmosphere make Vail a beautiful place to gather with family and friends during the holiday season. The holiday decorations, markets, and festivals provide abundant activities to share joy.

Visit St. Mary’s Glacier

Nestled between Georgetown and Denver, St. Mary’s Glacier in Idaho Springs offers approximately 2 miles of easy-to-moderate hiking. Enjoy stunning views of the glacier and St. Mary’s Lake.

Climb a Colorado 14er

Summit at least one of the 58 Colorado mountains that rise above 14,000 feet. See the Centennial State like never before. Mount Bierstadt, Mount Sherman, Huron Peak, and Handies Peak are relatively beginner-friendly.

Visit Great Sand Dunes National Park

Go just outside Alamosa to view the Star Dune. The tallest sand dune in North America stands over 741 feet high. Enjoy the stunning snow-capped mountains in the background as well.

When flowing, Medano Creek provides endless enjoyment by walking or playing in the water or sitting on the sandy edge. You also can rent a board or sled to play with and slide down the sand dunes.

Designated as Dark Sky Territory, the park has no light pollution. Be sure to take advantage of star gazing and night sky photography.

Soak in Hot Springs

Relax in at least one of Colorado’s hot springs:

  • Cottonwood Hot Springs, outside Buena Vista, is popular for individuals and couples.
  • Mount Princeton Hot Springs and Glenwood Hot Springs are top choices for families and large groups.
  • Hot Sulphur Springs on the west side of Rocky Mountain National Park offers a unique experience.
