Colorado Travel Tips

Gilpin County

Gilpin County, Colorado is a rural-like community located in the high country, adjacent to the Continental Divide, that enjoys low taxes with a financially secure, unobtrusive government presence.  Many visitors come to enjoy Golden Gate Canyon State Park or the Arapaho and Roosevelt National Forests as well as spend time in one of the many casinos located in Black Hawk and Central City.

Skiing in Colorado

When going skiing in Colorado, take a look at some of the smaller ski areas.  They cost less, the lines are shorter, and you'll probably have more fun skiing.
