Top Reasons to Go
Explore the Rockies: This section of mountains butts up against the Denver metro area, so it's easy to explore interesting towns and enjoy the mountain lifestyle.
Hit the slopes at Winter Park Resort: There's a blocked-off area for beginners, an outstanding children's program, and chutes and in-bounds off piste–style terrain for experts.
Ride the Georgetown Loop Railroad: Peering out the window at the raw, steep mountainside and the rickety trestle bridge on the vintage train ride from Georgetown to Silverplume provides an eye-opening lesson in 1800s transportation.
Tour the MillerCoors Brewery: An entertaining (and free) tour ends in a sudsy stop at the end for an informal tasting. You'll see the steeping, roasting, and milling of the barley, then tour the Brew House where the "malt mash" is cooked in massive copper kettles.
Explore Mount Evans: The highest paved road in the United States leads to the summit of 14,264-foot-high Mount Evans, and you can drive or bike nearly to the top or hike as much or as little of it as you like, passing mountain goats, bighorn sheep, and other animals along the way.
