The attendants of posh hotels can be a great source of information when you go to Colorado. And, they could be right when they say that your vacation won’t be complete without experiencing the rapids of the Colorado River.
You may never regret visiting the “Centennial State”, as long as you pay the river due respects. It might not be the longest river in the U.S., but the Colorado River is still one of the best destinations to experience fun, adventure, and nature. You can find Colorado rafting trips for your group and experience the adrenaline rush this river brings.
The Great River Colorado
The Colorado River is the namesake of the state. Long ago, Spanish travelers discovered the clear rapids of this river, which they later named as “Colorado”.
For sheer size, the Colorado River is going to overwhelm you. Even a thousand water buffalos will find ample enough space with the river stretching as long as 1450 miles. The river crosses seven U.S. states, reaching the northern boundaries of Mexico.
The river is not the only thing that makes Colorado trips worthwhile. The surrounding flora and fauna create the perfect haven for those who wish to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city. The stunning landscapes of the Rocky Mountains are enough to make you want to stay for another day.
Making the Most of It
With all that said, it simply is not fair for you to leave Colorado without experiencing the mighty rapids of the river. Take a plunge as thousands before you had. Better yet, experience the river at its most adventurous going whitewater rafting.
When you’re in Colorado, expect to get wet.
