Happy New Year! As part of my winter break, my family and I traveled to Colorado for the first time to spend New Year’s! Here is a look on all the adventures we had!
For the first couple of days, we spent time in Denver exploring the city and all it has to offer. We took a short road trip to the Red Rock Amphitheater; it was SO beautiful, and I highly recommend stopping by this place if you are ever in town! It was completely free, and they even had a small visitor center that gave information on the history of all the concerts held at this natural beauty.
We also spent New Year’s Eve in downtown Denver and ate a special dinner at La Loma Mexican Restaurant. The food was AMAZING and the dining experience was well worth it. Downtown was filled with music and everyone dancing in the streets as it got closer to the New Year, and it is truly a memory I will never forget (especially since it was FREEZING cold)!
Moving through Colorado, our next stop was Boulder! In Boulder, we also explored the city and nature. Chautauqua Park was one of my favorite places we went to because the the mountains and scenery were surreal; there we went on a short hike and just appreciated the nature surrounding us. Also, we decided to try skiing for the very first time, and it was quite the experience at the Eldora Mountain Resort! It definitely took me some time to get used to, but was so exhilarating. Nonetheless, I would highly suggest trying it out because it was so fun.
Last but not least, we visited the Rocky Mountain National Park and went on a tour bus for 3 hours. The tour was SO worth the cost because we were able to hike to see waterfalls and rivers, elk up close and personal, and go sledding! Now I can say I have quite literally stepped on a waterfall and river because it was partly frozen over!
BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE… I created a travel diary video (posted below) on my Youtube channel! Be sure to check it out and subscribe there for more videos!
If you ever get the chance to go to Colorado, I would definitely recommend visiting the area. I honestly want to travel there again, but in the spring/ summer time to see the nature again, but in a different setting.
