Be prepared for extremely loyal Bronco’s fans:
Yes, Colorado takes their football seriously. They bleed orange and blue. On game days people show up to work and school in their favorite jerseys and tee shirts. If you say anything negative about the Broncos you can expect you’ll get an earful as to why you’re wrong.
Man’s best friend is Colorado’s BFF:
Not sure what it is, maybe the outdoors, but people here love, love, love their dogs. There are tons of dog parks, most of them off-leash, where your favorite canine can find buddies to play with. Also, many businesses are dog friendly. If you are afraid of dogs or don’t like them, plan to adjust.
The green stuff:
Looking for that so-called Rocky Mountain High? Well, it’s here and it’s legal. There are many dispensaries to visit and you will find help with whatever ails you. You can easily find marijuana dispensary maps or go on a “weed trip” tour.
People are active and obsessed with fitness:
Everywhere you go in Colorado you will see hikers, runners, cyclists, and of course skiers. Because of the constant sunshine you can stay active out-doors even in the colder winter months. Even if you aren’t into doing those sort of things, just going for a walk in the fresh Colorado air is a must for everyone. There are many incredible walking paths.
Yep, Colorado is all about the skiing and the ski season lasts several months. The traffic can be intense so leaving early to hit the slopes and leaving early to go home is your best option. You’ll usually enjoy sunny, warm ski days where it’s not that unusual to see skiers without a coat on, sometimes not even a shirt!
Hope you like beer:
There are around 235 craft breweries in Colorado. When you go into the local liquor store you can plan on choosing from many varieties of beer or go on a brewery tour and there are several to choose from. Also, Colorado ranks as 3rd most breweries per capita, 2nd most gallons of beer produced per adult 21 and over, 3rd most barrels of craft beer produced annually per capita. Cheers!
Sunshine practically everyday:
It’s true, Colorado is the sunshine state where you get on an average of 300 days of sunshine a year. You get used to waking up to that big orange ball of light practically every day, even when there is over a foot of snow on the ground. Amazingly, you rarely have the winter long issue of icy, snow packed roads to contend with for months. It melts quickly here. When you visit other states you start to realize just how spoiled we are here.
