10 Must do's in Colorful Colorado.

10 ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME THINGS TO DO IN COLORADO
1. Colorado’s 58 Fourteeners Colorado has a whopping 58 “fourteeners” –– mountains at least 14,000 feet tall. To put that into perspective, even Alaska only has 19! Hike some of the more accessible ones, like Grays Peak or Mount Elbert or simply drive to the top of Pikes Peak!
2. Colorado National Parks Rocky Mountain National Park is a top place to visit, but the other three lesser-known parks have plenty to offer also. Great Sand Dunes has the tallest dunes in North America, while Black Canyon of the Gunnison is home to the “Grand Canyon of Colorado.”
3. Royal Gorge Suspension Bridge At 956 feet above the Arkansas River, you’ll find the Royal Gorge suspension bridge, one of the highest in the world. You can (slowly!) walk across it but consider riding the aerial gondola or ziplining across the canyon!
4. Mount Evans Road Mount Evans Road is the highest paved road in America, reaching 14,130 feet above sea level. That’s above the treeline AND cloud line!
5. Garden of the Gods As one of the state’s most photographed sites, Garden of the Gods is a top place to visit. The contrast of the red rock formations against snow-capped Pikes Peak is magnificent!
6. Million Dollar Highway The stretch of Highway 550 that runs between Silverton and Ouray, is known as the Million Dollar Highway. The scenery is jaw-dropping, but the drive itself is full of hairpin turns and “S” curves. Spend some time in Ouray, too, known as the “Switzerland of America.”
7. Ghost Towns Colorado was established during the Gold Rush in the late 1800s. Today, visiting some of these ghost towns should be on your bucket list. Check out St. Elmo, Independence, or Animas Forks.
8. Manitou Springs Next to Garden of the Gods at the base of Pikes Peak, this historic, eclectic former mining town is  famous for the penny arcade, drink from eight natural mineral springs around town & hike the Manitou Incline.
9. Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad There are several scenic trains in the state, but the D&SNG has been continuously operating since 1882! Year-round, the train offers scenic rides along the Animas River and through Cascade Canyon. 
10. Red Rocks Amphitheatre Just outside Denver in Morrison, lies one of the most stunning concert venues in the world: Red Rocks. The amphitheatre is naturally formed from red sandstone, making it not only incredibly scenic but lending amazing acoustics as well.
