Colorado The Centennial State

Majestic peaks, lush valleys, a history rich with mining tales, the life and death of boom towns, and rags to riches stories are the focus of Colorado Legends.

Tumbling down gold mines and virtually intact ghost towns dot the landscape, along with bustling cities filled with events and festivals. At Colorado's four national parks
, 13 national forests, and 42 state parks, there are ever boundless opportunities for adventures, including camping, fishing, hiking, sightseeing, and horseback riding. In the Fall, the foliage of the mountains and valleys are absolutely breathtaking and the opportunities for wildlife viewing are everywhere. In the winter, bring your skis and snowboards and enjoy the slopes of the beautiful Rocky Mountains. You're going to love it here!

There is much to experience in Colorado, and you won't be disappointed. Enjoy your travels in Colorado and welcome to the Centennial State.

Colorado - COLORADO LEGENDSThe official state flag of Colorado was adopted on June 5, 1911. It was designed by Andrew Carlisle Johnson in 1911. The white in the flag symbolizes Colorado's snowcapped mountains, the blue symbolizes clear blue skies, the red symbolizes the reddish soil, and the golden yellow represents the Sun. Attached to the flag is a cord of gold and silver, intertwined with gold and silver tassels.
