Attractions and Places to Visit in Colorado

Experience the mountain up close by ascending the scenic Pikes Peak Highway, a spectacular toll road that winds its way up the mountain.

Twenty-five top-notch ski resorts immerse visitors in the alpine culture. Wildlife festivals, gardens and scenic byways make it easy to linger in the great outdoors.

Denver may be landlocked, but it's still home to more than 500 species of ocean-dwellers, thanks to the Downtown Aquarium, the largest aquarium between Chicago and California. Have close encounters with sharks, sea turtles, stingrays, rainbow fish and sea otters as they swim in more than a million gallons of water. Just down the street from the aquarium, you'll discover the Children's Museum of Denver, a whimsical, imagination-stimulating adventure for kids 10 and under.
