The state of Colorado consists of many regions:
The Denver Area - most populous part of the state, with the large metro capital-city of Denver and its many suburbs
- The Eastern Plains - the least populated flat eastern half of the state, western agricultural country
- The Front Range - follows the northern part of the Rockies, including Boulder and such well-known attractions as Rocky Mountain National Park
- Northwestern Colorado - spectacular canyon-and-mesa country reminiscent of neighboring Utah
- South Central Colorado - the high country in the southern part of the Rockies, home to many ski resorts, including the towering San Juan Mountains, ("American Alps") with a broad, pleasant valley between them
- Southwestern Colorado - There is a special mystique about the southwest region of Colorado. It can be felt among ancient Anasazi Indian cliff dwellings at Mesa Verde National Park and in the quiet of rugged mining ghost towns high in the San Juan Mountains. From the sheer depths of the Black Canyon of the Gunnison National Park to the exhilarating vistas from Grand Mesa, world's largest flattop mountain, the region is rich in western history, Victorian architecture and Native American cultures.
Colorado is home to no less than twenty-six ski resorts such as those in Vail and Breckenridge, and the state is blessed with national parks, grasslands and forests. Wildlife abounds, from bears to moose and raccoons to wolverines. It is packed full of things to do year-round. Sun-drenched days, cobalt blue skies, cool evenings. Colorado makes you want to get out and experience all that the state has to offer.
