Romantic Getaway High Up in the Colorado MountainsSoaking Up the Rocky Mountain Scenery on a Romantic Getaway in Vail, Colorado

Best Time to Visit Colorado: April to June, September and October are nice months to be in Colorado. Be aware that public holidays and long weekends usually mean crowds of travellers heading to the Rockies, so if you can avoid these times great; if not, just be prepared to book much further in advance and expect higher prices.
