5 Fun Ways to Spend October in Colorado

Birthday Zipline Party

October in Colorado is filled with crisp mountain air, beautifully colored Aspen Trees, and tons of fun activities and adventures. Colorado visitors may find that October is the perfect month for a vacation since the crowds are smaller during the fall season.

Ziplining! An awesome way to spend a fall afternoon is ziplining with family, friends, and coworkers. AVA’s zipline course in Idaho Springs is open Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays through the month of November. Soar through the air as you zip down six separate ziplines that zigzag down the cliff side of a mountain. With special features such as a surf zip, log bridges, and a fifty foot free fall there is sure to be enough excitement for a fall adventure.

The Spa! Enjoy a bit of pampering and relaxation at one of the many fabulous spas located throughout Colorado. A good massage, a relaxing facial, and pretty nails are an awesome way to feel great before heading into the chilly, but amazing Colorado winter.

Camping! The nights are getting colder and the days shorter, but don’t count out camping yet! Explore areas around Colorado that are lower in elevation and spend a night camping with those that means most. Areas like Fruita or Fort Collins are great options for October camping in Colorado.

Hot Air Balloon Rides! October is great time to book a hot air balloon ride in Breckenridge! Soar high above the Rocky Mountain snow caped peaks and take in once and a life time panoramic views. bottlecap

Beer! Who does not like a cold craft brew on a nice fall day? Check out one of Colorado’s awesome craft breweries or distilleries. Tommyknockers, Breck Brewery, Broken Compass Brewery, and Breck Distillery are just a few of our favorite options.

October in Colorado means, less crowds, better deals, and lots of fun. No matter how you decide to spend your days, you can be sure they will be filled with laughter and smiles.
