"Explore the entire state ...." Colorado Favorite Tip by Michael_D

Favorite thing: Explore the entire state . Historically , Colorado is a youngster achieving statehood only 125 years ago, but its history is both rich and colorfull. In 1859 the 'city' of Denver was just a collection of tents and Indian skirmishes , buffalo stampedes and dreams of Gold strikes were the order of the day. 125 years later there is a population of about a million , skyscrapers dominate the mountain backdrop and like every American City , it has everything from shopping malls to rapid transit...everything from major crime, to major league sports franchises like the Colorado Rockies baseball to the Denver Broncos NFL football , to the Denver Nuggets NBA basketball team. Colorado hit the ground running in 1876 and hasnt looked back since.
