Colorado is a mountain lover’s dream, with some of the tallest peaks in the continental United States and 58 “fourteeners” — mountains exceeding 14,000 feet in height. With towns world famous for their slopes, winter sports and fireplace-laden resorts, Colorado is often thought of as a winter paradise.
But summertime in Colorado provides a different kind of experience altogether. This beautiful, adventure-filled season presents travelers a myriad of opportunities to explore without bundling up. Whether you prefer mountain treks, music festivals, ancient dwellings, historic mining towns or scenic drives, a summer visit to Colorado has it all.
