With its extraordinary Rocky Mountains (America's best skiing) alongside expansive plains and desert of numerous national parks, landmarks and monuments, the fast-growing state of Colorado is a tourism leader, receiving large numbers of vacationers throughout the year (whose number will now be affected by the hard-to-predict effect of its recent legalization of recreational cannabis). In this Easy Guide, our author,a resident of Colorado, discusses every major travel option, every popular destination within the state.
Eric Peterson has been writing about travel for more than 20 years. Beyond covering the Rockies in numerous Frommer's guidebooks, he has also written about skiing, hiking, and other ways to get up and down mountains for such publications as the New York Daily News, Delta Sky, and his own Ramble series of travel books. When he's not on the road, he covers the arts, technology, and city-building for Confluence Denver, a "hyper-local" website. Eric lives in Denver with his wife, Jamie, and their trusted canines, Mimi and Duncan.
