With fall now in full focus and the summer months behind us, I’ve been dreaming of an autumn getaway to see the changing colors and falling leaves! Do you know where is one of the very best places to see this all happen? Colorado, of course! I spent my childhood admiring the yellow aspens in the fall, and have been dreaming of a way that Scott and I can make our way back up there before all of the leaves have fallen. Until then, I’ll just be looking through photos of my last trip to the Colorado Front Range, and reading up on all of the fun fall activities to do in the area! Curious? Here are 10 fall activities to do in the Colorado Front Range —
Boulder: The Boulder Farmer’s Market was one my favorite stops along our five day adventure! The market is still going strong in the fall, and I have a feeling that you’ll be able to find a few delicious pumpkin treats and some hot apple cider there! Looking for more activities to do in Boulder during the fall? Here’s a full list!
Estes Park: I can only image how beautiful Estes Park must be in the fall — surrounded by trees and a beautiful scenery that lends itself to being a gorgeous autumn scene straight out of a movie! Heading that way soon? Here’s a full list of things to do in fall in EP, including the Fall Back Beer Festival in November!
Loveland: One of the highlights of my summer trip to Colorado was experiencing the Sylvan Dale Guest Ranch where we took a two hour horseback ride through the mountains, and stopped to have a very rustic lunch along the way. If you’re in the area, an autumn ride around the ranch is a must! Oh, and don’t forget to stop by Osborn Farms after to pick your own pumpkins for some more autumn fun.
Greeley: Our time in Greeley back in June may have been short, but this charming city certainly made an impression! There always seems to be something fun to do in Greeley (last time around the Greeley Stampede was in town), and during autumn there are no exceptions — here’s the full calendar of events for the fall season (an evening at the orchestra, farmers market and more!).
Fort Collins: This charming college town has so much to offer — great food, great coffee, great treats, great people … I literally could go on and on! Their autumn calendar of events is packed full this season, but just in case you needed a few extra suggestions — a visit to Jessup Farms is a must, a stroll downtown is the perfect way to take in all the cute shops and cafes, and I hear this year’s Tour de Corgi is sure to be a lot of fun (will be in CA during this year’s festivities, but I’m crossing my fingers for next year — because, corgis!).
Longmont: This gorgeous city was our last stop during our whirlwind trip through the Colorado Front Range this summer, and was one place that I just wished I had more time to spend exploring in. I hear they have a full line-up of autumn events, including their Day of the Dead Exhibit (which is the largest in the state)!
Now I’m curious, do you have any plans to head to Colorado this fall? If so, what towns/cities will you be headed to? Be sure to check out my first post on my trip to the Colorado Front Range for more stories, photos and suggestions on where to eat, play and stay in the CFR! I’ll be back again soon with more photos and stories from my time in Colorado, but until then I hope ya’ll are having a great Monday!
A huge thank you is in order to the Colorado Front Range for having me and for sponsoring this post!
