Anasazi Cliff Dwelling, Mesa Verde

 

Photo by Flavia Righetti

There is more to a family vacation in Colorado than ski slopes and dude ranches. Visit a ghost town. Tour a gold mine. Follow the Overland Trail. Gawk at towering peaks and marvel at fields of sand dunes. Take in the expanse of the prairie and gape at canyons thousands of feet deep. Embrace Mother Nature. Dig for dinosaur bones. Watch wildlife. Explore Ancestral Puebloan cliff dwellings. But don't limit your family holiday to the sights and sounds. A trip to Colorado with kids is as much about the things you see and do as how you get around. Hike, bike and horseback ride on mountain trails and commune with nature at a slower pace. Take a scenic train trip and travel through time. Family travel to Colorado is all about the great outdoors.
