Whether you're exploring Fort Collins' Lory State Park, its Victorian streets, or Denver's artwork-dotted botanical gardens, Colorado's outdoor spaces are multifarious. Bison roam beneath the Rocky Mountains, while brewpubs, historic neighborhoods, and Native American art recommend its cities.
Discover serenity on Colorado's mountain girt plains
Come and unwind at Denver Botanic Gardens on spa getaways in Colorado. World-class artworks by Calder and Chihuly peek from among flowers from Australia to Africa in this 23-acre garden beneath the Rocky Mountains. Don't leave Denver without paying a visit to the city's stellar Art Museum, which presents one of the country's largest Native American collections in interactive multimedia formats. Discuss your trip at one of the craft breweries in town. Black Shirt Brewing Co.'s ungainly glasses were specially developed to allow patrons to enjoy the brew's aromas.
On the foothills of Pikes Peak, the Garden of the Gods Park in Colorado Springs is a must on spa getaways in Colorado. 15 miles of trails wind through the gardens, and expert naturalists offer tours of this remarkable outdoor attraction. Why not cruise through the historic district of Colorado City on a segway? Adventure Out West also offers Jeep tours to Manitou Springs, eight idyllic springs believed to confer healing on visitors. Come and enjoy their wellness boosting properties at SunWater Spa. If you fancy a challenge, scale Manitou Incline; a mile-long trail that ascends for 2000 feet.
Spa getaways in Colorado aren't complete without horseback rides in Cherry Creek State Park, which encircles an 880-acre reservoir. Gently undulating hills and prairie plants contribute to a pervasive sense of calm at the park. Alternatively, watch bison cross the plains at the Rocky Mountain Arsenal National Wildlife Refuge. 330 different species inhabit the reserve, which is ribboned with ten miles of pristine hiking trails.
