Top Things to Do in Colorado: Attractions for All Ages

Fact Checked by Michael Peters

Between the state’s near-monopoly on 14,000-foot peaks and its breathtaking scenery, there aren’t many locales like Colorado, which is why millions of visitors flock to the Centennial State each year.

With the state’s natural wonders, like Morrison’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre and Colorado Springs’ Garden of the Gods, and man-made attractions like Denver’s Coors Field and Rocky Mountain National Park’s Trail Ridge Road, there’s no shortage of places to see.

With that in mind, BetColorado.com, your home to the best coverage of Colorado sports betting, took the top 10 attractions in Colorado from Trip Advisor and used SemRush to rank them in terms of popularity based on total search volume. The search volume numbers are from March 1-26.

Where is Colorado’s Top Attraction?

The most searched for attraction in Colorado is the country’s eminent outdoor concert venue, in Morrison’s Red Rocks Amphitheatre — which was built by the Civilian Conservation Corps and Works Progress Administration during the Great Depression out of the red rock Fountain Formation.

Since the facility opened its doors in 1941 after five years of construction, it’s hosted a who’s who of performers, including U2, the Beatles and The Grateful Dead.

The Morrison outdoor venue dominated the state’s most popular search traffic numbers, with a total of 201,000 in search volume, while Garden of the Gods (135,000 search volume), Pikes Peak (110,000 search volume), Denver Botanical Gardens (49,500 search volume) and Cave of the Winds (40,500 search volume) rounded out the top five.

As spring drags into summer and the last reaches of snow give way to sun-splashed days of warmth, it seems like Coloradans have no shortage of places to see. Residents also have no shortage of places to place bets, and you can get all the best information on Colorado betting apps at BetColorado.com.
