Colorado is full of friendly people... high country ranchers, ski bums who couldn't leave after the snow melted, and everything in between. From the mountaintop view that inspired the song America the Beautiful to the ancient cliff dwellings of Mesa Verde, and inside dozens of museums around the state, Colorado's rich heritage can be seen and enjoyed by all. The metropolitan areas of Denver and Colorado Springs offer a great variety of cultural experiences, while mountain towns celebrate the summer with music, food festivals and the great outdoors.
