Colorado Road Trip Ideas for Winter

Colorado Road Trip Ideas for Winter

If you're feeling adventurous this winter, you might be interested in hitting the road for Colorado. The Centennial State can be beautiful when blanketed in snow, and there are plenty of activities and things to see in the colder months. Just remember to make sure you and your new or used RV are prepared for inclement weather! Here's a suggestion on a fun road trip to Colorado in winter.

Start out in Denver.

Visit the Denver Botanic Gardens and learn about Colorado plants. Take a seedling course, do some yoga in the gardens, or, if you're there near the holidays, take in the Blossoms of Light display.

If you happen to be in the area in January, get information on the Icelantic's Winter on the Rocks concert at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, which is one of the world's most beautiful venues and which rarely hosts shows during the winter. Also in January, the Mile High City features its annual Winter Brew Fest which offers craft beers from Colorado and other US breweries.

Check out some of Denver's amazing restaurants and shops, and rent skates at Skyline Park for a few trips around the rink!

Head to Breckenridge.

When you've had your fill of the big city, travel west on I-70 to Breckenridge. Hit the ski slopes here or take a hot air balloon ride over the stunning snow-covered mountains.

Travel to Vail.

In this picturesque ski town, you can find much more than just the slopes! Visit Bearcat Stables to take a horse-drawn sleigh ride and enjoy a delicious catered dinner afterward. You can also take a cave tour at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park.

End in Aspen.

Once you've had your fill of adventure, sit back and enjoy the scenery. Relax in one of Aspen's wonderful spa facilities and treat yourself, or take a nature stroll with a furry friend from the Aspen Animal Shelter's Rent-a-Pet program.

You can have a great time on a winter road trip to Colorado ¿ but again, remember to stock extra food, blankets, and fuel just in case, as Colorado's winter weather can be extreme.
