5 things you must do in Colorado

Listed as No. 9 on Top 10 best places to visit, Colorado is known for its breathtaking views, trendy lifestyle and laidback attitude.

You’ll never find yourself bored with its rich culture and environment, not to mention growing food scene and endless breweries.

Check out five things you must do if you’re a first-timer in the Colorful Colorado.

Go to Red Rocks Amphitheater

Did you even go to Colorado if you didn’t visit Red Rocks? (The answer is no, by the way).

Red Rocks is known for its high energy and fun concerts, vigorous workout environment, or even Yoga on the Rocks and Easter morning mass.

They don’t call it “the best place to see the stars” for a reason.


Go to a Denver Broncos game

We have some unbelievably awesome sport teams so going and cheering on Super Bowl 50 champs is never a bad idea.

From its famous hotdogs to getting a photo with the team’s mascot Miles, these games are known to be a good time!

Visit 16th Street Mall

From its rows of hanging Colorado state flags lining 16th Street to its ice rink and Christmas lights in the winter, 16th Street Mall is the perfect stop for a shopping trip or afternoon stroll.

It offers a wide variety of restaurants to stores and coffee shops, the perfect place to window shop or spend the afternoon exploring.


Get outside of Denver!

The nice thing about Denver is everything is a short drive away!

With Boulder being a 45-minute drive north or Colorado Springs an hour drive south, these fun towns are a huge bonus.

Boulder is known for its laid-back lifestyle with local beers and Colorado Springs offers Garden of the Gods, a beautiful and well-known National Natural Landmark!

Hike a “fourteener”

As miserable as it sounds, climbing to a peak over 14,000 feet is not, I promise!

Colorado offers over 50 fourteeners to hike at your leisure.

Though more fun to do with a group of friends, nothing beats the beautiful views you will witness at the top of a mountain and the feeling of accomplishment taking a photo while holding the mountain’s name and height sign.
