Colorado is the ultimate outdoor vacation. Close your eyes and picture a clear blue sky, a beautiful green forest, snow-capped mountains, and clear blue lakes. You’ve just pictured the Aspen area. It goes without saying that Aspen is the place to go for skiing and winter sports. Three hours away, Denver itself is a real city with all the amenities a big city has to offer, yet it is in close proximity to the mountains and their scenery. You can take day trips to the Rocky Mountains and Pike’s Peak, or just bike tours around the city. It’s as beautiful a place as America has to offer, and Denver is also an easy place for the frum traveler thanks to its long-standing Jewish community. Denver has plenty to do inside as well as outside, with a renowned art museum, children’s museum, and science museum. Colorado is well worth a trip, if for no other reason than to say you have been to the Mountain time zone.
