What`s your favorite Colorado season? That’s a tough question to answer. We live in a state that shines year-round, replete with outdoor recreation, cultural enrichment and good, oldfashioned fun. But summer is a time when Colorado really shines.
Whether it’s concerts in the mountains or Shakespeare under the stars, our state has it all. Here in Boulder County, we’ve got RockyGrass and the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, not to mention more than 200 miles of Open Space and Mountain Parks trails for hikers, bikers and equestrians.
A quick drive up Highway 36 brings you to the treasures of Rocky Mountain National Park, where you can drive along scenic Trail Ridge Road, picnic among aspen and ponderosa pine, or backpack along the Continental Divide.
Fun adventures lie else where in the state as well, from the Telluride Bluegrass Festival high in the San Juans to Dinosaur National Monument in the northwest corner of the state.
To help make it easier for you to plan your best summer ever, we’ve put together a list of fun things to see and do, including some of the best places to visit here in Boulder County and across the state. We hope you take time to slow down this summer and enjoy the dog days of colorful Colorado.
