That Rocky Mountain high is still going strong in places like Denver, Aspen, Vail, Telluride, Boulder, and Colorado Springs. But there's also canyon/mesa country, plains, wine country, old frontier towns, and more.

Why Denver's dining scene is unforgettable

Wally Gobetz There are a lot of things to love about Colorado's capital and largest city. Its setting alone is an awe-inspiring one, in the shadow of the soaring Rocky Mountains - your first time seeing the Mile-High City in the distance as you approach is one that you will never forget.

Rockies Paragliding cited in 'In the USA this Fall, Combine Foliage with Adventure'

Dan and Mary Stroudt oooh and aaah at the multicolored scenery below the hot air balloon in which they’re riding. The journey is very different for Mark and Marylee Sutherland as they help to paddle a rubber raft along a stretch of whitewater in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina. Betsy Goodman and Tom Cross are traveling at a slower pace, strolling across a glass-bottom observation deck. These disparate experiences may seem to have little in common, but they do. They provide…
