Front Range Travel Guide

Front Range Accommodations

With a yearly average of 300 days of sunshine, you are bound to have a perfect vacation in the gateway area of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Central City, Clear Creek County, Estes Park, Fort Collins, Golden and Greeley are within the Front Range Region of Colorado. For your summertime enjoyment or a wintertime skiing getaway, choose privately-owned vacation rentals for your holiday accommodations instead of staying at a hotel. Condo rentals in town, or lodging close to the ski slopes, are an ideal choice. This region offers you arts and culture, and many perfect days outdoors. Start your vacation in the city nestled between the mountains and reality.

Actively experience why Boulder was recently rated the #1 Sports Town in America by Outside Magazine. Kayak on some of the best white water in the country. An adrenaline rush awaits you as you mountain bike over rugged alpine trails or go rock climbing on the nearby peaks. Feel your spirit soar as the hot-air balloon lifts you upwards. Join the Eagle and the Hawk, in the words immortalized by the legendary John Denver who was named Poet Laureate of the state in 1974: Come dance with the west wind and touch on the mountain tops. Sail over the canyons and up to the stars. And reach for the heavens and hope for the future, and all that we can be and not what we are.

Participate in a catch-and-release tour and discover your soon to be most-loved fishing spot. There are hiking trails and historic walking tours. Fort Collins extends diverse cultural attractions and a vibrant nightlife to you. From June to October, hear live music and take a free horse-drawn carriage ride through Historic Golden at the Golden Farmers Market. Pick up the ingredients for tonight’s dinner, prepared in the kitchen of your vacation rental accommodations: fresh veggies for home-made soup accompanied by freshly-baked bread. Add a bottle of locally-made wine and you are ready for an enjoyable meal shared with friends. Take in an art show at Greeley on another day.

For an eco-friendly way to see Boulder, purchase a short-term membership for a nominal fee. The recently launched Boulder B-cycle’s public bicycle-sharing program makes it easy to get around. Hop onto one of the red bicycles for a pleasurable way to go shopping at the same time. The Boulder Bike to Shop guide has everything laid out for you. Stop at one of the 60 parks and enjoy the picnic lunch you packed earlier today at your vacation rental accommodation. Later on, why not stop at one of the many restaurants or sidewalk cafés for supper. The next day, tee off at the Flatrions Golf Course.

Are you looking for a skiing vacation this winter? Eldora Mountain Resort's - located only 21 miles from Boulder – offers you an enjoyable day of downhill skiing. For a change of pace, try cross-country skiing or snowshoeing. Take the family ice-skating on the outdoor rink in downtown Boulder. Stay in a chalet rental close to the slopes or a condo rental in town. Vacation rentals are comfortable and inviting.

Click on your destination in the website of Owner Direct Vacation Rentals and reserve your holiday home. Will your vacation rental be by a lake, one of the cottages tucked into a forest or do you prefer apartments in town?
