Colorado at a Glance
Tourist amenities such as bars, restaurants and hotels can be found clustered together in
a few areas - downtown, North Academy Blvd., and the historic districts of Old Colorado
City and Manitou Springs.
Colorado Springs, Colorados second-biggest city, is just an
hours drive down I-25 from Denver, but it has a character all its own.
While the museums are open year-round, including the Pro Rodeo Hall of
Fame, one of the best reasons to visit the area is the spectacular scenery.
With more than 16,000 hotel rooms in the Denver area, visitors also should have no trouble

With countless miles of world-class mountain biking trails, a nearby ski resort, its own
natural hot springs and a navigable river running right through town, Durango has become
an outdoor-lover's dream destination
Tucked away in the southwestern corner of Colorado, almost 400 miles
from the state capital, Durango may seem about as remote as it gets. But hours away from
any major population center is exactly where this easygoing town wants to be.
Summer is really the best time to visit, especially if you're a steam
locomotive enthusiast. Between May and October the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge
Railroad does four round-trips daily.
