Your Colorado vacation

Colorado vacations might conjure up skiing (Breckenridge, Aspen, Steamboat, Vail, Telluride) and Rocky mountain vistas, but don't let your imagination stop there. While it's true Colorado delivers some of the best skiing in the country and dozens of resorts, the nation's highest state still has more to show you.

Hike, zip-line, fish, golf, you name it -- Colorado is serving it up … way up. Find outdoor adventure across Colorado's "fourteeners," national parks, dramatic rivers and lakes. For something more urban, see baseball powered by altitude, enjoy locally-produced beers and cutting-edge restaurants, or an outdoor concert against sandstone monoliths.

Before you pack your earmuffs and waders, let Orbitz guide you with the best time to go on a Colorado vacation, top 10 highlights and insider tips from local experts.

Best time to take a vacation to Colorado

With an average of 300 days of sunshine per year (yep, more than Florida) and an outstanding variety of outdoor recreation, there's really no bad time to visit Colorado. Snowfall from October to April means fresh powder on the ski hills … and mountain road closures.

For the best Colorado vacation, plan your visit based less on the weather and more around what you most want to do. Snow skiers love the fall through the spring, while hiking and rafting are prime in the spring. For the best off-season deals, visit Colorado from August 15 through Labor Day, Memorial Day through mid-June, and in January.
