When people think of the Rocky Mountains, the first thing that usually comes to mind is skiing, snowboarding, and other snow-filled escapades. However, there is no shortage of Colorado summer activities that can keep you occupied all season long, ranging from whitewater rafting to thrilling Jeep tours and UTV rentals. There’s a reason that the mountain towns in Summit County come alive in the summertime. Crisp air, cooler temperatures, and stunning views are just some of the reasons people make their way out of the city and into the mountains during the warmer months.
You can escape the city heat and humidity by getting out on the water with rafting and paddle boarding. You may opt for a more relaxed approach and enjoy the breathtaking mountain views on horseback rides, train rides, Jeep tours, or zip line adventures. At the end of a day full of adventures, come join a brewery tour and taste some unique Colorado beer freshly brewed with water that rolled right off the Rockies.
While our state may be famous for craft beer, Colorado is also home to other fascinating history. Come learn about Colorado’s rich history on one of our gold mine tours. If you’re seeking something a little more adventurous, we also have ATV and UTV rentals and tours that will take you through historic areas and other Summit County locations to experience the true backcountry.
