5 Things to See and Do in Colorado

As 2018 approaches, we can begin really looking forward to the great trips that the year will hold! While Good News Travels has group tours going out constantly, the year will also hold some important new tours - our Joinable Tours. The first one heads out in August to Colorado for an exciting, weeklong exploration of this beautiful state!

Here are five fun things to look forward to on our Colorado Trains trip!

1. Take a ride on the Pike's Peak Cog Railway

A registered National Natural Landmark, the Garden of the Gods is quite a dramatic view to take in. Rock formations rise 300 feet into the air against the backdrop of snow-capped Pikes Peak.

3. Walk out on the world's highest suspension bridge

Continue to take in the breathtaking views from 1,053 feet above the wild Arkansas River. If you're feeling extra brave, you can even zip line across the gorge!

4. Explore cliff dwellings of the mysterious Anasazi

Known as the "Ancient Ones" to the Navajo, the Anasazi lived in the Four Corners area almost a thousand years ago, then suddenly disappeared - leaving their dwellings to intrigue and challenge modern man.

5. Take in the vast wilderness of the Rockies by train
