Colorado Is Better Than Your State

We believe Colorado is the best state in the entire country. Now you don’t have to take our word for it, but here is a list of reasons why we feel this way. From our beautiful city scenery to the spectacular views in the Rocky Mountains, no other state can compare.

Weekends at Black Hawk & Central City. (Colorado’s Historic Gambling Towns)

Garden of the Gods. The Garden of the Gods red rock formations were created during a geological upheaval along a natural fault line millions of years ago.

We invented the cheeseburger. Denver lays claim to the invention of the cheeseburger. In 1935, Louis Ballast of Humpty Dumpty Drive-In was awarded the trademark.

 

Our streets are longer. The longest continuous street in America is Colfax Avenue.

 

We have one of the largest city park systems in the USA, with 205 parks in city limits and 20,000 acres of parkland in the nearby mountains.

We plate our buildings in gold. The gold-plated dome of the Colorado Capitol symbolizes our state’s “Gold Rush” days.
