months. The summer time is a time to enjoy a big change of pace in the school year. This is an chance to focus on different interests or activities you do not have as much time for through the rest of the year.Summer is just like awesome as winter. May is midway over, and summer will officially range from mountains on Memorial Day Weekend. Be sure to come out early for the best rafting conditions, or delay until August to escape the heat across the country.
Horseback Riding: It is a nice activity for Summer Vacation in Colorado. As the gateway to the western frontier, Colorado is, indeed, horse country. Take the summer heat as an opportunity to have a true Wild West experience on the back of a galloping palomino as you ride off into the sunset. Breckenridge, among other Colorado ski areas, keeps stables on site so you and your group can take horseback riding tours through the beautiful Rocky Mountains.
Camping/Backpacking: There’s no guarantee you’ll be able to totally unplug on a camping trip, but Colorado will make sure you have all the inspiration to do so. With campsites in 41 state parks, more than 22 million acres of national forests and hundreds of private campgrounds, it’s easy to find a tranquil spot to get back to basics.
Whitewater Rafting: Looking to cool off? The many rivers and canyons that cut through the mountains are a great hideaway during the hottest hours of the day, so take your sense of adventure to the valleys. Guided whitewater rafting tours are a perfect way to get some midday thrills while taking advantage of the sunshine.
Mountain Biking: cycle racing in summer is great activity for kids. If you can't glide down the slopes on a snowboard or pair of skis, then take a bike. This is the idea many Colorado ski resorts have embraced over the years, and is now the reason they keep their chair lifts running year-round.
