Since I’ve been a traveling enthusiast for many years, it happened on more than one occasion that my traveling was not going like it was planned. I’ve learned in those situations to relax and just go with the flow.
There are always bumps on the road, but with the right attitude, some unexpected situation might be the best thing that happened to you on your vacation. One time I got lost in Colorado, and somehow I ran into a beautiful place called Empire.
At first, I thought that I was in the middle of nowhere. I started to worry, but after some time I decided just to relax and to learn more about this part of the country.
Delicious food everywhere
At first, I was confused and happy to see Hard rock café which is the original hard rock café from 1934. Even though there is no connection with a famous chain of restaurants, the food was fantastic. I ate one of the best burgers I have ever tried, and people there were charming.
In every restaurant I’ve visited, I have felt this family atmosphere. Food is served with love, and it was like the secret spice of grandma’s cooking! Whether you try hot dogs, burgers or more traditional meals, you will enjoy in every single bite. Remember to save some spare room for one of the many dairy desserts that Colorado people are crazy for.
Hiking through incredible landscapes
Colorado is a country of many natural beauties. Not talking about #nofilter girls, but about those view breath takers. I have enjoyed walking all my life, so this part of a visit was the most special one for me.
Beautiful pine trees combined with mountain view made me feel like I would never want to leave this magnificent nature. I decided to hike through the wilderness but if you are visiting you should try mountain bike. It will rush your adrenaline, and you will still be able to enjoy sightseeing.
Camping in beautiful log houses
I am one of those people who is considering accommodation to be very important while traveling. There are many excellent accommodations here which will make your stay relaxing and comfortable.
I would suggest spending nights in an amazing log house. Imagine a beautiful winter evening, and you are cozy, warm, drinking a nice glass of wine in front of the fireplace. I haven’t slept that good in a while! The accommodation was very comfortable and good that I didn’t want to leave the bed, but the smell of a beautiful breakfast woke me up in a second.
Relaxing in a golf course
Personally, I have never been a fan of golf, but hitting few balls in nature with friends can be very relaxing and joyful.
Excellent and very famous golf courses are known not just among people from Colorado, but also many tourists come here just to play golf. Challengingly rocky terrain and amazing view while playing on them is one of the main reasons why professional golfers are visiting this beautiful court.
I have enjoyed my time here, and I will visit again during my road trips, simply because this place has everything that you need for relaxing vacation.
