I also agree with SW CO, San Juan region.

I am partial to the area as my parents live in Pagosa Springs, but I think the area in general is just beautiful. Winter or Summer doesn't matter... If you are an outdoors type person this is certainly the place for you..

If you are in shape I agree about renting a bike, there are some amazing trails all across the state. Also hiking any of the 14,000ft mountains will be very memorable if you are coming from the flat land!

Anyone have any suggestions on places to go, things to see, things to do, when the weather warms up?
If you are in the Colorado Springs area, be sure to travel up "Pike's Peak" on the "Cog Railroad".........that's quite a thrill with the 25% grade, but if you can't go into the altitudes (the peak is over 14,000 feet in elevation) be sure you consider it.

Pike's Peak Cog Railway - The world's highest cog railroad, the highest Colorado railroad AND highest train in the United States.

Someday I hope to live there.

Skip the D&S NG RR unless you want to get raped on the cost. While it is scenic, you would be better off driving to Silverton, looking around and then continue on your way to other attactions. An interesting thing to go see while in Silverton is the Old Hundred mine tour.

If you're into a little gambling, you'll have to visit the quaint little town or "Cripple Creek".......
originally a gold mining town, but now all the little stores are "casinos"..

Don't forget about Rocky Mountain National Park. Take a drive thru it from Estes Park to Grand Lake. Fantastic scenery and lots of wildlife.
