Colorado is jam-packed with wonderful and amazing attractions, but, quite often, we don't fully appreciate what's in our own backyard.

So Many Colorado Attractions We Could See  Anytime, Yet We Don't

Tourists come to Colorado from all over the world to enjoy the wonders and intricacies of our great state. Yet, there are so many attractions in the state that people who live here have never seen. It's like, we're right here, we could see it anytime, but there's no sense of urgency and so we never do it.

What Is Something You Have Never Seen or Done Even Though You Live Here?

Recently, we asked our listeners to name a popular attraction in Colorado they had never been to, in spite of the fact that they are Colorado residents and could pretty much go anytime they wanted. Here's one example. Larry told us he's lived here since 1957 and has never been over the Colorado National Monument. Are you kidding me?

But, I understand it. I've lived in Grand Junction for 20 years and I've been over the monument, but I rarely go. Even though I love it and think it's fantastic, I'm lucky if I get up to the monument once a year.

Pauline mentioned Elitch Gardens saying "I think the 'I can go anytime' is never in this case." Elitch's is a cool place and super fun, but, have you ever been there?
