If it's winter sports you're looking for, there's no better place than Colorado. Whatever season you're planning your holiday in, why not think about renting an apartment in town or a cabin in a national park? There's no need to be restricted by hotel rooms when you and your family can relax in the space that a rental property provides. You could have a skiing resort right on your doorstep, or stay in town to take advantage of shopping opportunities and the cuisine of local restaurants. There again, you can ring the changes and cook your own food in the fully equipped kitchen you will have at your disposal.
Colorado is home to no less than twenty-six ski resorts such as those in Vail and Breckenridge; other winter activities include snowboarding, sledding, sleigh rides, snow hiking and snowmobiling. The state is blessed with national parks, grasslands and forests where in warmer weather you can enjoy hiking, mountain biking or rock climbing. Wildlife abounds, from bears to moose and raccoons to wolverines. More interested in local history? Head for either the Ute Indian Museum or the Koshare Indian Museum, and don't miss the forts such as Fort Garland and Bent's Old Fort. For a complete change, why not take a ride in a hot air balloon from South Park Valley or Boulder and admire Colorado's picturesque landscape from above?
Colorado holiday rentals for families
Colorado may be one of the prime destinations for winter activities, but Denver Zoo is open all year round. As well as admiring the black howler monkeys, komodo dragons, seahorses and Madagascar hissing cockroaches, you can take a train ride or have a picnic. There is more in the way of wildlife at the Gator Farm in Mosca and the Butterfly Pavilion in Westminster. Then there's plenty of excitement at Glenwood Caverns Adventure Park with its Iron Mountain Tram, giant canyon swing, alpine coaster, indoor climbing wall, bungee jumping and giant maze. The Dinosaur Resource Center in Woodland Park will impress you with more than thirty life-size skeletons, including a forty-foot Tyrannosaurus Rex. In Cascade, the North Pole Home of Santa's Workshop has an amusement park to keep your family happy all day. Children will delight in feeding the animals there too.
