For a ‘20 min in Colorado’ stop, you’ll generally find a place for a picnic, a restroom and something to see!
I live in the beautiful state of Colorado and I am blessed. However, I guess I’ve taken my state for granted. I am guilty of the, ‘I can go see that anytime’ attitude about local things to experience here. Because I am a native, it’s easy to assume I’ve exhausted most of the ‘must sees’ in my beautiful state. I have been however, mistaken.
I have been challenged with learning about the little places to see and quick things to do in Colorado. So now I am enjoying taking the little path. I’m exploring and seeking out the quirky things that you probably won’t find in a guidebook. The right-off-the-highway places where it’s possible to pull off, stretch your legs, have lunch, or just enjoy a quick photo op. I’ll be sharing my discoveries with you as we go. I decided to create this category on my website called, ‘20 minutes in Colorado’ for just that purpose. These places won’t take long, and you probably wouldn’t have noticed these spots in a guide book. If you did, they probably wouldn’t be worth making a special effort to see.
I want to challenge you, too, as you grow, learn and master the art of the road trip, not to neglect the wonderful things to see and do right in your own state! Your little trailer will take you down the road as easily as across the country and every place is a blessing (some more than others of course….).
There are three main interstate highways that go through Colorado, so if you are just passing through (or traveling here as a destination), you will most likely find yourself on one of them. Even if you didn’t plan an excursion, we’d love to have you stop along the way and enjoy the view! Those interstates are: I-25 (N&S); I-70 (E&W); and I-285 (S).
I’ve separated these posts into sub-categories by highway name, so that if you find yourself along one of our beautiful stretches of highway you can look up a quick ‘where can we stop?’ option. The categories are oriented from Denver.
Please enjoy a quick stop in ‘Colorful Colorado’!
