Two falls ago, my husband and I took a road trip through Central Colorado in September and it’s hard to explain the beauty we experienced. The Aspen trees are changing colors, and the bright yellow leaves against the white of their trunks is so drastic it’s hard to take your eyes away to concentrate on the road. It is by far one of my favorite places to visit in the fall!


From Mountain Hot Springs to Caverns Adventure Park, Glenwood Springs has outdoor activities for everyone. These top attractions are less crowded come autumn, even on the peak Colorado color weekends in September through mid-October.

There are many trails around Glenwood Springs to view the gorgeous fall foliage, and several ways to explore them: by bike, by horse, by ATV, or even by Segway! Your options are endless.

Food (& Booze)

Denver is one of our favorite cities, and the fall festivals don’t disappoint.

Great American Beer Fest. This 3 day festival showcases 4,000 different brews from 800 breweries. It is the largest collection of US beer ever served. Lend your pallet in a public tasting event and then see how the private competition winners compare to your top choices. You decide who the experts are.

Denver Food + Wine Festival. This multi-day extravaganza of food, wine and spirits education and tasting has something for everyone. What better way to sample the local Denver food scene than to eat from 40+ of the top restaurants in the state in one night.


Fall is one of the best seasons for fishing. There are fewer anglers and less pressure on aquatic life, so your chances of catching a trophy trout greatly increase! Enjoy the solitude in the crisp fall air, surrounded by the changing leaves. Even for us non-fishermen, this sounds like a perfect day.
