5 Ways to Prepare for Your First Family Ski Trip to Colorado

Read moreParents who are brave enough to take small children on a ski trip will undoubtedly earn a lot of respect for their peers. How many parents would be willing to go through the rigors of traveling with children, skis and gear, followed by a harrowing trip through the frozen wilderness to heights of more than 10,000 feet above sea level? Sure sounds like a recipe for some major headaches if you ask me. So how do you explain all those smiling parents with youngsters happily learning to snow-plow? They probably know some of the tricks that avid skiers have picked up over the years.


Will Legalized Marijuana Change Tourism in Colorado?

Read moreEver since Colorado voters elected to legalize the "recreational use of marijuana," the burning question has been, "How could this impact tourism in the state?" Anyone who has ever visited Amsterdam knows something about "marijuana tourism," and how much legalized pot can change the lifestyle of a community.  But according to a recent article in The Daily Times of Farmington, NM, it won't change anything in surrounding states.


Winter in Colorado – Festivals and Celebrations

Read moreJust in case you thought the only reason to visit Colorado in winter was for skiing, there is a whole lot more going on in the Rocky Mountain State.  Many families spend time here every year just to take in the holiday festivals and tree lighting ceremonies in this picturesque winter wonderland.  As noted below, there is plenty to see in Colorado as the holidays approach.  Here is a guide to some of the simplest joys of the holiday season, starting with spectacular celebrations and lighting festivals across the state.


Aspen Hunting - Fall Foliage Drives in Colorado

Read moreYou’ve probably heard that driving through the mountains of Vermont and New Hampshire is the best way to take in spectacular fall foliage, but there is one thing they don’t have – the Colorado aspen tree.  Just like Atlanta is known for its peach trees, Coloradoans adore the quaking leaves of their celebrated aspen trees.  They’ve named towns, streets, even a favorite beer after this unique golden tree, and people come from miles around to witness the gilded spectacle of aspens in autumn.  However, you must time our aspen viewing carefully; the color only lasts about a week in many places and it’s hard to predict exactly when the leaves will change in a given location.


10 Fun Ways to Spend a Fall Weekend in Colorado

Read moreIf you’ve never visited the state of Colorado in autumn, you are in for a real treat.  People tend to focus on New England states for fall weekends and foliage, but there is nothing more breathtaking than a Colorado mountain landscape in sensational shades of red, yellow and orange.  Tourists don’t wait until the middle of October to start traveling to Colorado for fall festivals, so festival organizers start the season out early before Labor Day weekend with September Splendor in the Rockies.  Why not start planning your getaway to “Colorful Colorado” and enjoy the beauty of changing leaves and perfect temperatures?


Favorite Romantic Getaways in Colorado

Read moreAs someone who has traveled the globe and spent time in almost every state, I have visited hundreds of hotels and resorts.  It always surprises me how many of them claim to be the “perfect romantic getaway,” when they are nothing more than a cozy hotel.  Some states have even claimed to be the capital of romance.  One that comes to mind is that late 70’s ad campaign, “Virginia is for lovers!” Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with Virginia; but if you want the best romantic getaways you need to come to Colorado.  The natural beauty of the Rocky Mountain state is unparalleled, and it makes the perfect backdrop for many of the state’s most romantic resorts.


10 Steps To A Fabulous Family Reunion

Read moreThere is always someone in the family who wants to take on the task of planning a reunion; but without help it can be a frustrating experience.  Unless you have a lot of extra time on your hands, don't take this project on by yourself -  especially if you’re not sure how much interest  there is from distant family members. 

Making the reunion into more than just a party will help generate more interest. Sometimes it makes more sense to plan family reunions at a favorite childhood vacation spot or near a Colorado ski resort so people can stay awhile and enjoy family-oriented activities.  It all depends on the age and activity level of your family members and how long the reunion will last.

Before you start scouting out locations and locking in a date, take the time to follow these planning tips for a stress-free family reunion.


Where are the Best Colorado Mountain Cabins for Rent?

Read moreIf you’ve never toured the state of Colorado, you may want to take a look at a map first. While almost any spot in this gorgeous state is a great place to hang your hat, there are some areas that make a better vacation destination than others.  Before you can even look for Colorado mountain cabins to rent, you will need to figure out where you would like to be.

Fun-Loving Families Seek Out Cabins in Colorado Mountains to Rent

Read moreIf your family is planning a trip to Colorado for the first time, you may be tempted to approach it just like you would any other family vacation.  But as you will soon notice as your plane descends into Denver International, this is not your ordinary state.  If you want to experience the beauty and majesty of this beautiful area, look into cabins in the Colorado Mountains to rent.  Sure, you could book a hotel or stay in a fancy resort near Aspen or Vail, or you could splurge for a few nights at the Brown Palace hotel in Denver, but the true glory of Colorado can be found in its nature trails, roaring rapids, and incredible Rocky Mountains.  Staying in your own rental cabin will put you and your family right in the center of nature’s grandeur and let you experience it from a whole new perspective.


A Seasoned Traveler Shuns Hotels in Favor of Cabins for Rent in Colorado

Read moreAccording to many travelers who regularly visit Colorado, the best attraction in this part of the country is the great outdoors.  This is not to say that there’s nothing to do indoors, but the main reason people come back again and again is for the awe-inspiring mountain scenery.  Even if you’re not a skier, when booking a trip here your search terms should be “cabins for rent, Colorado” instead of “Colorado hotels”. 

Imagine yourself in a rustic wood cabin in the middle of a jaw-dropping mountain vista, with a mountain stream babbling nearby and acres of wooded land in every direction.  The crisp mountain air greets you as you open the doors to your own wraparound porch, where you will enjoy your morning coffee.  This is just one example of the kind of cabins for rent in Colorado.  Many also include a stone fireplace and a Jacuzzi tub, full gourmet kitchen and plenty of comfortable furniture.
