So, it is time to book a vacation, and you are trying to decide where to travel? What defines a great vacation? It is the tales that you will tell afterwards, right? That is what facebook is all about, too, defining yourself through experience and photos. We invite you to make Colorado the site of your vacation adventures and the background of your epic vacation selfies. The Bed and Breakfast Innkeepersof Colorado member inns have enough opportunities to keep you posting for a very long time. We will amaze you with history, legends, stories and experiences to go with the hundreds of selfies that you will shoot in our State.

Booking your vacation stay at a bed and breakfast is also an excellent way to get an unofficial tour guide for your Colorado adventures. Our innkeepers have located in a State that is over 1,500 square miles of varied terrain. Every area has its own fascinating history, and we will happily tell you stories and give advice to guide your daily trips. Our history is fascinating. Man was here in prehistoric times, leaving pictographs on canyon walls. Archaeology students from the University of Colorado are excavating ancient camping hearths in the Garden of the Gods, an area frequented for thousands of years by many Native American tribes. The land was considered sacred, and many tribes met there in peace.

Today, Garden of the Gods is a public park with hiking trails of varying difficulty levels. A family can take a hike on gently rolling paths to accommodate the short legs of their children, or adults can choose more challenging hikes. With a park climbing permit, one can scale several of the mammoth red rock formations using climbing gear. The grandeur of the park is such that it is also used for weddings. One couple staying at a bed and breakfast created an interesting story to tell their future children about their ceremony. Within an hour, the innkeeper at Blue Skies Inn uploaded an album on Facebook to post the wedding for all of the elderly relatives who couldn’t travel that day.
