The Great Outdoors

Experience nature every day

Urban to mountain in minutes. No flight required.

Living the Colorado lifestyle means unending opportunities to enjoy nature, even in the urban core. But when you do want to get out of the city and go for an adventure, the mountains and countless other amazing destinations are just a drive away.

Something for everyone

World-class experiences

Living in Colorado means 365 days a year of experiencing all that nature has to offer. Whether you escape to the Rocky Mountains to hit the slopes or head to your nearest park for a morning run, Colorado delivers something unique in every season. We have legendary venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater, some of the best ski resorts in the world, 58 14’ers to climb, and much more.

Live outside

A climate to envy

Colorado’s 300 day of sunshine and temperate seasons set us apart. Low-humidity keep us outside all summer unlike most of the east coast. We get enough snow to keep us on the slopes but not trapped inside all winter unlike the Midwest. And we have four distinct seasons that create an ever-changing environment to enjoy unlike areas of the west coast.
