Best Family Vacations in Colorado for 2024

I dream about going to Colorado nearly every single day!

My first time arriving in Colorado was an experience in itself! I haven’t been to many airports, but enough to know that I should follow the crowds getting off the plane because they seemed to know where they were going and I certainly didn’t! When I finally found baggage claim to meet my niece and get my luggage, I was ready to breathe in the fresh Colorado air! There seemed to be nothing but desert-like farmland surrounding the airport, but as we continued driving to where my family lives, I almost shouted out how beautiful it was and I had never seen mountains like these before! It was a joyous experience and I wanted to express my inner awe in a song or a book!
