I visited Colorado during the last winter and believe me, I have fallen in love the natural beauty and happening nightlife of the city. I extended my program twice because the city has too much to offer for a tourist who wants to explore every nook and corner of a new place.
Cave of the Winds, Garden of the Gods, Great Sand Dunes National Monument, Pagosa Springs and Colorado Springs are some of the major tourist attractions of the city.
But those who want to see the unexplored and real Colorado must head towards the mountainous ranges as they allow you to see the real picture of grand and majestic Colorado.
Chimney Rock Archaeological Area was the best part of my visit and I loved the historical items placed there, which speak about the history of time and the vicissitudes Colorado has witnessed.
Colorado is a place that is also known for its frequent and rapid weather changes, so taking clothing for all types of weather will always help you while visiting Colorado, United States tourist attractions.
I chose the location because I had heard from several friends that the beaches were nice—and they were. Bradenton Beach is pristine, with perfect white sand and enough crashing waves to be relaxing but not dangerous.
Local activities included fishing, tanning, beach volleyball, skimboarding, surfing, and shopping the local antique stores. One store in particular, the Sand Dollar, was lovely, selling everything from seashells to island clothing.
A local restaurant that I found mouthwatering was called Skinny’s, which featured a tiki bar and picnic-style tables that were crowded with teenagers eating French fries and freshly-grilled cheeseburgers.
I rented a beach house during my stay, which I would strongly recommend for its proximity and overall vibe. Other features of the area were several more beaches, along with a short drive to both Tampa and Orlando. Bradenton, Florida is definitely worth a visit!
Cape Cod’s heyday was probably in the 1960s when the Kennedy family was in the white house, and there are lots of remnants of its past that are still fun today. For example, there are numerous miniature golf courses, the JFK museum, and lots of kitschy crab shacks and knick knack stores.
A perfect day on Cape Cod (especially if you stay in the Hyannis area) would begin with a big breakfast at one of the many quaint "mom and pop" restaurants. One of the best is called “Grumpy’s” off of Route 6.
Cranberries are a local favorite, so make sure you order the cranberry pancakes! Next, stop by the Kennedy Museum to soak in the history. Then, grab your swimsuit and head to the beach! There are beaches all along the cape and all of them have a different feel.
My favorite is Coast Guard Beach and it’s consistently ranked among the top 10 best beaches in the United States. It’s great for families, for sun bathing, or even surfing. Go early so you can stake out a good spot. After catching some waves, you’ll be hungry.
Cape Cod is well-known for its delicious sea food which gets shipped all over the U.S. Take advantage of having a full lobster caught fresh that day. The Lobster Pot in Provincetown serves up a fantastic meal.
Provincetown, or “P-Town”, is the place to be for nightlife, too. Catch a show, go clubbing, or just enjoy an outdoor concert and watch the sun go down. Cape Cod is a great place to relax and enjoy a slower pace of life.
There are wonderful museums for both adults and children including the Johnson Museum at Cornell University, the Discovery Center, and the Museum of the Earth. For book lovers, there are numerous used bookstores and cafes. Because this is a university town (both Cornell University and Ithaca College), there are many high-quality restaurants, not usually found in a small town.
There is a lot of live shows, free and inexpensive concerts, live theater. All this and a plethora of wineries within easy driving distance. Ithaca is a great vacation idea if you are looking for United States tourist attractions.
