Two Colorado spots have been ranked on Travel + Leisure's list of "the 50 best places to travel in 2021."
The first spot mentioned on the list was Denver's 'Lower Highlands' area. Described by the publication as "where the cool crowd is", the Lower Highlands area, or LoHi, is known for a vibrant arts and restaurant scene. Found on the northern side of Denver, LoHi is a popular spot for nightlife, though the pandemic has put a damper on activity over the past year. Perhaps 2021 will bring a turnaround.
Another spot mentioned on Travel and Leisure's list were 'The Rockies.' While this mountain range spans a massive stretch of land, the support for it being on the list is Colorado-centric. Travel + Leisure referenced the new Rocky Mountaineer train that's set to launch in August – a glass-domed ride from Denver to Moab. Also mentioned is Fishers Peak – Colorado's newest state park – as well as new developments at Aspen Snowmass.
