Where to go in Northern Colorado
#1 - CASA BONITA
Even if you're not a fan of Mexican Cuisine, Casa Bonita is an attraction more than a restaurant.
- Flame Jugglers
- Cliff Divers
- Gift Shops
- Fun Filled Maze
- Amusement Center
- Strolling Mariachi Band
- Authentic Home Made Cuisine
- It's more than a night out, it's an experience. Great for kids of all ages (including the grown ones!)
#2 - Vedauwoo
Possibly the best kept secret to those who live in Northern Colorado or Southern Wyoming. It's well worth the drive for an outdoor adventure you won't soon forget.
- Pic nick ground
- Hikiing For All Skill levels
- Rock Climbing Challenging Enough For Experienced Climbers.
- An Underground River (If you can find it!)
- The Best Stuff Nature Has To Offer
Probably my all time favorite spot, I think about it all the time even though it's been fifteen years since I've been there!
#3 - Estes Park
This quaint little town doesn't look like much on the map, but it's full of fun. From all the shops, the entertainment, to the magnificent scenery. Nearly everyone I have known in Colorado have gone to or go frequently, honeymoon, vacation, etc. in Estes Park. Only a short drive up the gorgeous Thompson Canyon, you'll get lost in this little town. Also features some of the nicest American Indian Jewelry I've ever found!
#3 - Horsetooth Reservoir
Rent a boat for water skiing, go swimming, or even scuba dive down to Alt Colorado, the town that used to reside where the reservoir now is. Hiking, rock climbing, bike/running trails, cliff diving, amazing scenery, there isn't much that Horsetooth Reservoir doesn't offer. Just outside of Ft. Collins it was also one of my favorite childhood destinations.
To sum up, there isn't very much of The Colorado Rocky Mountains that aren't awesome, from Red Rocks, to Rocky Mountain National Forest. So many things to do, you could fill a lifetime and never run out, from white water rafting down the Poudre Canyon to Skiing at Vail, Eldora , or any of the many other ski resorts. Hot air balloon festivals to pioneer days, rodeos, camping, fishing. If you're an outdoors-man, Colorado is the place to be. I haven't been back in ten years, but I think about Colorful Colorado every single day.
