Rocky Mountain Highlights
Outdoorsy types will find plenty to do in Colorado, from hiking to rafting to climbing and more. Not only do the mountains provide one stunning vista after another, but they also offer some of America's best winter sports, with destinations like Aspen and Vail attracting skiers and snowboarders from all over the nation.
There are many ways to experience the majestic beauty of the landscape, from helicopter and balloon rides to trains that wind through the mountains and offer reminiscence of the state's history as part of the old west.
In addition to its natural splendor, Colorado has a reputation for being laid-back, progressive, and ruggedly independent, which seems to fit the personality of many Travel Nurses to a tee. The city of Denver provides the benefits of a modern urban center, with shopping and dining and culture, but the bold Western landscape's endless beauty and adventure are never far away.
