Garden of the Gods

It's quite possible that more group shots of family and friends are snapped at the park's entrance than any other spot in the Pikes Peak region. Recently recognized as one of the nation's 10 Great Public Spaces by the American Planning Association, the park also is the area's No. 1 tourist attraction, for good reason.


Gold Belt Tour

This splendid route makes you want to reinstate the tradition of the Sunday drive. Located in southern Colorado, it retraces historic travel routes connecting the Cripple Creek and Victor mining districts to the small communities of Florence, Florissant and Ca?n City. The drive is recognized as a National Scenic Byway.


Coors Field

The stadium isn't only for cheering on the Colorado Rockies. The higher you climb, the better chance you have of seeing Denver's great skyline and the towering Rocky Mountains, including Longs Peak and Mount Evans. Fans sitting in the first-base and right-field areas, in particular, get spectacular views of the mountains.


Maroon Bells

This setting outside Aspen is said to be the most-photographed spot in the state. And it's easy to see why. The backdrop to a lush valley filled with wildflowers and accented by a tranquil lake is two 14,000-foot peaks - Maroon Peak and North Maroon Peak. A bus system shuttles visitors free of charge to Maroon Lake during the summer.


Telluride gondola

The free, 13-minute ride transports you to Mountain Village, offering a panoramic, bird's-eye view of the picturesque San Juan Mountains that tower above the box canyon. The unique form of transportation provides a look at Mother Nature from 10,500 feet. The gondola is open daily from 7 a.m. to midnight.
