Colorado Family Holidays
With endless outdoor adventures, cosmopolitan cities, an old west heritage, exceptional powder runs, and 300 days of sunshine, Colorado is a state of play for families, whatever the season.
Colorado is a landlocked slice of America’s west and a perfect playground for families. Its extraordinary landscapes provide a backdrop to outdoor activities from hiking and fishing to stargazing and world-class skiing at its 28 ski resorts. Families love Colorado’s snow-capped Rocky Mountains, 13 national parks and monuments, 30 hot springs, the history of the Wild West and scenic drives.
Colorado isn’t just about the mountains, though. After you pass the Continental Divide, the landscape quickly changes from green to red, with deserts, dinosaur digging, canyons and river activities aplenty.
A vibrant cultural scene has been on the up and up in urban centres such as Denver and Aspen. If you want a side of fine dining, live music and art galleries with your rocky mountains then you are in luck.
Kid-friendly activities abound in Colorado. Families can try sandboarding in Great Sand Dunes National Park, walk in the footsteps of a stegosaurus on Dinosaur Ridge, catch a show at Denver Puppet Theatre or ziplining through Rocky Mountains.
