Good History Lesson Nov 16, 2007
This book has a great description of what made and makes Colorado and an overview of what each area has to offer. However, the maps are not usable if you are driving since only the major roads are shown, and it does not seem to list as many activities in each area as other books in this series do.
A picture is worth a thousand words Jan 28, 2007
This book was extremely helpful in planning my trip to Colorado. The pictures in it are so beautiful that it helped influence my decisions as to what places to visit. An added benefit to the book is that I can refer back to it and look at the beautiful pictures in it to remind me of the places I visited. The history covered, the descriptions of the places all influenced me as to where I would visit...and it did not disappoint. I will definitely buy other books by Insight Guides to wherever I may go next. The information was extremely helpful and the pictures are so wonderful that I sometimes pull out the book just to look at where I have been. Sigh!!!!
All you need to know about Colorado Apr 4, 2006
I will be relocating to Colorado for the summer and was looking for a book that gives you a sense of the history, culture and local attractions throughout Colorado. This book does that in a clear and interesting way. This book is great for anyone who wants to get a look into the culture and scenic beauty of the Rocky Mountain State!
