Colorado is by far the most scenic state in the nation. Whether you're driving at the base of the Rockies along the Colorado River and looking up at majestic mountains that seem to melt into the sky, or skiing down from the mountain tops and taking in the panoramic view for a hundred miles, you're in heaven. There are no bad scenic views in Colorado. The only problem with Colorado is trying to keep your eyes on the road when driving through. Not only has this state become one of the most revered for living and breathing, it has become an icon for business and pleasure. If you're seeking something out of the norm while traveling, this is one state you must stay an extra two days for. Even then, you'll never see it all and must return for more.

Historical Notes: Colorado is the only state to have turned down the Olympics. In 1976, the Winter Olympics were planned to be held in Denver, but 62 percent of all state voters chose not to host the Olympics because of the cost, pollution and population boom it would have on Colorado and the city of Denver.
