Colorado is one of the most popular honeymoon destinations in the country for a reason. It has incredible mountain vistas, national parks, clear lakes, and delightful small towns filled with our country’s history.
Colorado has an abundance of culture and history. And for love birds with a taste for delectable cuisine and grand accommodations, Colorado is the place to be. Nestled within the great Rockies, Vail and Aspen beckon. They both offer first-rate skiing, but each town has its own uniqueness.
Aspen is the oldest of the two cities, spanning back to the19th century Colorado silver rush. As such, it has four mountains, history, and culture in addition to shopping and great restaurants. Vail is younger, quieter, and has only one mountain. Both cities have a thriving nightlife for après-ski that will enliven your Colorado honeymoon.
While in Colorado, the Seven Falls waterfalls in Colorado Springs shouldn’t be missed. Visitors from around the world come to marvel at the thundering waters crashing down. There are two hiking trails snaking around the Falls. Seven Falls can be reached by shuttle from the nearby Broadmoor Resort.
Across from the Falls, you will find Eagles Nest, the most spectacular mountain in Colorado. Hike its trails or enjoy excellent food at the Restaurant 1858, with waterfalls and mountains all around you. Photos of the view from Eagles Nest will make you Instagram-famous.
Also located in Colorado Springs, the state’s largest city by landmass, the Garden of the Gods is a park consisting of iconic sandstone formations millions of years old. Even the rival native tribes would not fight on these sacred grounds. Massive red and pink limestone grew vertically instead of horizontally into spectacular shapes and forms due to eroding rocks.
