Colorado is a spectacular state that can be explored in many different ways, road trips being the type of journey that is the most fun. There are lots of great itineraries for road trips through Colorado – some longer, lasting several days, others shorter, more like a day trip, just perfect for a Saturday followed by a lazy Sunday back home. Here are two routes – two examples, one shorter and one longer that you will surely enjoy:
- Denver – Estes Park – the trip is around 70 miles long and takes you from the big city to the gate of the Rocky Mountains. The town is cozy, but its most well-known attraction is the hotel that inspired Stephen King when he wrote The Shining;
- A long trip to include the state’s 6 national parks – if you are looking for a much, much longer trip that lets you explore Colorado’s unique natural beauty in more depth, you can take the 1,130-mile long tour that includes 6 national parks, lots of historic sites and hot springs. You can set off from Denver, moving towards Boulder and the Eldorado Canyon State Park, then continue to Grand Lake and Glenwood Springs, then travel west to Grand Junction, all the way to Ouray.
