you can take a look at the rockies ... that's for me like my home (where i was born) in austria ... i mean, to see high mountains - that's great!
Colorado Renaissance Festival:...
Colorado Renaissance Festival: This festival is south of Denver about 1 1/2 hrs. It's a lot of fun, be prepared to spend the whole day there. It can get a bit expensive, and hot, bring a water bottle. It starts in June and goes through the end of July on weekends. The food is generally pretty good, there are lots of choices for “food” on a stick! They have several jousts a day, and lots of other entertainment. One of the longer running acts at the fair is Puke & Snot - a comedy act, they are pretty funny, if you go try to catch one of their shows. Most of the shows have some pretty bawdy humor, so if you’re sensitive about that kind of thing you might not enjoy things as much. There is a kid section and I would imagine there is less bawdy humor in those things, but I’ve never gone to any of the separate kid stuff, since I don’t have any kids. Every weekend has a different theme, for ex. Wine tasting, Beer tasting, Kid’s weekend, Romance weekend, check out the web site for a list. They love it when people come in costume and there is even a place right outside the gate where you can rent costumes for the day. I’ve heard they are pretty expensive, but I’ve never checked for myself.
Civil War Monument
This bronze figure of a Union Soldier facing South with gun in hand was built to honor Colorado's Civil War heroes and to promote civic pride. It is the work of Captain John D. Howland, a prominent member of the 1st Colorado Cavalry and accomplished artist.
The statue was unveiled on July 24, 1909 using donations from both the taxpayers as well as the Colorado Pioneer's Association.
Being in the Rocky Mountains
Take little with you, and leave little behind! Depending on the time of year, be prepared for anything. A good pair of hiking boots is just as stylish in the city as out. A roll of toilet tissue is a good idea.... ya' never know...
If you want to go riding in Colorado there are a few good places to go that I have visited.
Most wont let you run due to the rocky conditions of the land but the views are amazing and the guides are safe.
If you tip well and are in an area that is safe for the horse and rider they will let you trot and canter.
.............personable.....allows you to camp with the
horses if you prove your horsemanship ability.......owners are from Prague.....great couple.
Pine Cliff Stable

Golden, CO 80403
Is an excellent one.....short ride but good guides.
also rocky mtn national park offers rides but i have never ridden there so do a search if you are interested. most places are seasonal......meaning no deep snow although gold lake will let you ride if you are experienced....they also offer lunch and sunset rides around the area.
great riding but check weather conditions.
