Colorado Travel & COVID-19

The Colorado Tourism Office encourages visitors and locals alike to embrace our new interpretation of responsible tourism — showing care not only for our destinations but for others, including those who call Colorado home. As Colorado makes steady progress in sharing free vaccinations with all eligible residents, please be aware that mask requirements may vary depending on what part of the state you're visiting. We encourage you to be flexible, keep a mask handy, respect area businesses and remain alert for local guidance. When in doubt, wear a mask or visit COLORADO.com/MaskStatus.

While travelers can expect limited capacity at restaurants and other indoor venues for now, this summer's calendar offers the return of many beloved festivals and events, including Ride the Rockies. You can catch a Rockies game at Coors Field, and tickets for Red Rocks summer concerts already are on sale. 

A favorite since 1891, the Broadmoor Manitou Pikes Peak Cog Railway will reopen this spring after two years of restoration, taking visitors to the brand-new Summit Visitor Center atop the 14,115-foot summit of Pikes Peak. The much-anticipated Palisade Plunge is set to be one of the longest singletrack downhill-mountain-bike trails in the U.S., and Arapahoe Basin will inaugurate the highest via ferrata climbing route in North America. Colorado will commemorate the Bicentennial of the historic Santa Fe Trail throughout 2021, and the Rocky Mountaineer luxury train will debut its first U.S. route from Denver to Moab this fall, with an overnight in Glenwood Springs.
