Fall break is approaching, and these days are sure to fly by. It isn’t necessary to leave the state to have a memorable time; enjoy what Colorful Colorado has to offer
The cultural diversity within the state allows for new things to be learned and the various attractions are sure to please not only visitors, but fellow Coloradans as well.
For those who want to experience something they certainly haven’t before, the “Day in Pompeii” exhibit at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science may be just the thing.
This exhibit is at it’s last U.S. stop from Sept. 14 to Jan. 13 before returning to Italy. An up close look of what the eruption destroyed and at the same time preserved is the highlight of this exhibit.
“Pompeii is arguably the most famous archeological site in the world, and having firsthand access to these artifacts is a privilege for Denver” Steve Nash, curator of archeology at the museum said.
An outing in Estes Park with family and friends is also sure to be enjoyable to begin with, but what if horses are added into the mix?
At Sombrero Ranch in Estes Park, horseback riding is offered for people of all ages, with a family friendly environment and flexible rides altered to match the rider’s experience and excitement. Touring the incredible mountaintops and lake at Maroon Bells in Aspen is an opportunity not to pass up.
RFTA buses take trips up to and around the area surrounding the mountains and Maroon Lake, which allows for countless photographs and views of the things that Colorado is known for.
Spend your fall break enjoying the wonderful features and activities here: of course the best of Colorado.
