Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The most complete guide to Colorado in existence ... Not just an invaluable guidebook, this also makes for entertaining reading, with its breezy style and snippets of colorful historical anecdotes ... Recommended for all travel collections." -Library Journal

"This definitive, up-to-date sourcebook covers all recreational activities." -Backpacker magazine

"The Colorado Guide is the most extensive escort to our glorious state since the WPA Guide to 1930's Colorado." -Rocky Mountain News

"An information book - a bible if you will - compiled with knowledge and affection." -The Denver Post

With this trustworthy guide in tow, no one will be starved for Colorado activities: It offers more than 1,500 destinations and events. This overdue new edition has been completely updated and includes full-color maps and photographs. Arguably the most comprehensive paperback guide to the magnificent Centennial State.
Booknews
New edition of a thorough guide providing a great deal of textual information (guidebooks often waste a great many pages on slick photos--none in this competent book). Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Nice,,,, Great...!

If you want a list of pretty places, scenic overviews, and tourist traps, get a pamphlet. If you want the inside scoop, the lowdown, the skinny, and the 'been-there-and-done-that' firsthand experience of the best and most insteresting, get this guide! Bruce, Dean, and the rest of their contributors and staff have done a wonderful job of compiling THE guide to Colorado. Of course, no single publication can touch on every single intersting thing in Colorado (more a State of Wonder than a State in the Union). But, dang it, this guide sure tries! It's obvious that they have not only taken the time to actually go to the places they are writing about, they also talked to the locals and got insider tips on what to do, where to go, and who to see. If you only have room or money for one guide, this is it!
