The Best Colorado Tourism Outdoor Guide

This Colorado tourism guide is written by real people, who enjoy the Colorado outdoors everyday.

We really should not call it a Colorado tourism guide as there is useful information for everyone.

We cover the tourist attractions but you will find a wealth of off-beat destinations and educational information for beginners, experts and everyone inbetween.

One of the major benefits of being recreational specialists (mountain bums) is having the time to visit destinations and explore the state. There are so many outdoor opportunities at home that we rarely feel the need to leave the state.

In this guide you will find:

  • Colorado tourism is not all about the Rocky Mountains. There is a world of desert in the south and west and a large expanse of plains in the east.

  • Learn about our wildlife including black bears, majestic elk, mule deer, birds and small mammals.

  • Learn about the best of the best in your outdoor passion by rafting the Black Canyon, flyfishing the Frying Pan River, skiing or snowboarding at the top resorts, and discovering remote ghost towns rich with Colorado history. On the way to your destination stop off at a winery or drive one of the beautiful scenic byways.

  • Use our eductaional guides to be prepared once you arrive. Are you in need of camping tips, checklists and recipes? We have it here for your benefit.

  • We are scouring the industry for the best deals on the best gear that will be presented to you in a store in the near future.

  • And we have barely scratched the surface. This is more than a Colorado tourism guide, it is a community. At the bottom of most of the pages you will find forums where you can share your knowledge, experiences, and pictures. So come on in and see what Colorado tourism is all about. We hope to see you on the trail!

When I arrived...

I moved to Colorado for a summer job as a flyfishing guide with the intentions of returning home at the end of the season. The job was in the southern part of the state and I did not picture it as being a major part of the beautiful Rocky Mountains.

My jaw dropped as I drove into the heart of the San Juan Mountains and was surrounded by massive 14ers and trout laden waters. I did return home at the end of the collect my belongings and make the move permanent. I have no regrets when I am looking at the Colorado scenery everyday.

I created this guide to show you why and to make the prep-work easier for your next trip. No more long hours of web surfing and sales pitches for some honest information. This is your guide as much as it is mine.
