Sign me up: Colo-Road Trips

Did you know that Colorado.com publishes “Colo-Road Trips“? These ready-made itineraries provide great information about how to string together some of Colorado’s best food, culture, history, nature and more into a memorable road trip packed with adventure and exploration.

For example, take a look at their “Days of Fun in the Cache la Poudre River National Heritage Area.” Per the website, “From Fort Collins to Greeley and the villages of Laporte and Windsor, this northern Colorado region is packed with expansive views, welcoming locally sourced restaurants, frontier history and much more.” I couldn’t have said it better myself — and even though Northern Colorado is my stomping grounds, I still found plenty of new-to-me spots for my to-do list. It might be time for a staycation!

Colorado’s Creative Corridor

In this blog I have highlighted local¬†yoga, food, events and more — but the arts can be an important factor in choosing a city or a neighborhood as well!
I love this video Colorado Field Guide video about the Colorado Creative Corridor. The video tour highlights five iconic western Colorado cities: Carbondale, Paonia, Crested Butte, Ridgway and Salida, quickly showcasing the arts and creativity in each one.
The Colorado Tourism Office has even designed a special map to help you visit all five of these rural destinations as part of a single culture-packed trip. Their trail is 331 miles long and offers “a collective experience of unique event programming and activities alongside mountain-town eclecticism, majestic vistas and outdoor recreation, and authentic Colorado mountain culture.” You can download their map and brochure for free right here. Road trip, anyone?
