Colorado is home to most of the southern Rocky Mountains, offering an impressive amount of outdoor recreation to suit nearly everyone's interests. On a typical day you could be golfing in the morning in Denver and riding chairlifts, catching fresh lines on your snowboard in the Rocky Mountains.
The state of Colorado was named after the Colorado River because of its reddish color. It is known as the "Centennial State" because it was accepted into the Union in 1876 (38th state), one hundred years after the Declaration of Independence.
