Nearly every lookout is a great way to view this spectacular natural wonder. But to really experience the scale of this stunning canyon, you'll have to get up close. Therefore, if you're planning a trip to Colorado, don't miss the stunning Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park. It's located in southwest Colorado, seven miles north of Montrose.  You'll get some peaceful solitude after a long day of traveling. If you're feeling adventurous, try hiking the nature trails.

Golden - Colorado’s First Capital

While you're in Colorado, be sure to visit Golden, Colorado's first capital. This mountain town is a hip destination with an eclectic downtown filled with outdoor cafes and recreation shops. Nearby is Red Rocks Park & Amphitheater, a world-class outdoor concert venue that has hosted such celebrities as Bruce Springsteen and the Beatles. It’s also a great place to kayak or go hiking.The former gold rush town, at the base of the Rocky Mountains, is home to the Colorado Museum, which features a 19th century railroad depot and vintage trains.

Old Colorado City

For more outdoor activities, try visiting Old Colorado City. Founded in 1859, this city was the Colorado territory’s original capital. It was home to miners, ranchers, and farmers. Today, the city maintains a charming wild-west vibe. You can download a free tour app and explore the city yourself. You'll find a variety of shops and restaurants, and plenty of places to grab a tasty breakfast.

Glen Eyrie Castle

If you're looking for a more culturally-based experience, you can visit the beautiful Glen Eyrie Castle in Colorado Springs. Built in the late 1800s, it was once a massive Tudor estate of General William Jackson Palmer, the founder of Colorado Springs, and his family.

Art lovers won't be disappointed when they visit Colorado Springs. The city has more than 50 pieces of public art, a roster of cultural events, and has been named one of the 30 Certified Colorado Creative Districts. The downtown area also boasts a free art shuttle, and a free First Friday Art Walk shuttle takes visitors to local galleries and museums.

The state capitol building in Denver is another popular destination and stands a mile tall at 5,280 feet, just like the capital of Denver. The dome features 200 names of mountains. The building also offers free tours on weekdays. Denver, which is known as the Mile High City, is exactly that high.
