Colorado has been a popular vacation destination for many decades. Most visitors come to admire and explore the majestic Rocky Mountains, which offer unrivalled recreation. If you really want to get closer to nature, the best way to experience Colorado is on a camping vacation, but not everyone relishes the prospect of doing without their home comforts. This is where glamping can be a solution. You can sleep in a comfortable bed at night but still enjoy BBQ around the campfire. Glamping resorts are mostly located in terrific locations which offer easy access to walking, hiking and skiing areas as well as offering summer activities like white-water rafting, fishing and much more.
