Colorado at a Glance

Colorado Springs, Colorado - Compare Hotels

Colorado Springs, Colorado

Tourist amenities such as bars, restaurants and hotels can be found clustered together in a few areas - downtown, North Academy Blvd., and the historic districts of Old Colorado City and Manitou Springs.

Colorado Springs, Colorado’s second-biggest city, is just an hour’s drive down I-25 from Denver, but it has a character all its own.

While the museums are open year-round, including the Pro Rodeo Hall of Fame, one of the best reasons to visit the area is the spectacular scenery.

Denver, Colorado - Compare Hotels

Denver, Colorado

With more than 16,000 hotel rooms in the Denver area, visitors also should have no trouble locating just the right place to hang their hats.

With the expansive Midwestern plains to the east and the majestic Rocky Mountains to the west, Denver feels like the center of the country. In fact, it nearly is. Denver International Airport, the sixth busiest in the world, is only 340 miles from the midpoint of the continental United States.

In downtown Denver, free shuttle-bus service operates about every 10 minutes until 11 pm, running the length of the 16th Street Mall and stopping at two-block intervals.

Durango, Colorado - Compare Hotels

Durango, Colorado

With countless miles of world-class mountain biking trails, a nearby ski resort, its own natural hot springs and a navigable river running right through town, Durango has become an outdoor-lover's dream destination

Tucked away in the southwestern corner of Colorado, almost 400 miles from the state capital, Durango may seem about as remote as it gets. But hours away from any major population center is exactly where this easygoing town wants to be.

Summer is really the best time to visit, especially if you're a steam locomotive enthusiast. Between May and October the Durango & Silverton Narrow Gauge Railroad does four round-trips daily.

Summer in the Colorado Rockies: by Wendy Maxey.

It's safe to say that there's more to do in Colorado during the summer months than there is to do in the winter.
