Vacations are nice. They give you a chance to recharge your batteries after a long stretch of work, and more importantly, they give you a break from dealing with coworkers, who are, quite possibly, the worst people on the planet.

Unfortunately, all good things must come to an end, and that includes vacations. Unless you somehow become independently wealthy and can tell your boss precisely where he can put your job, you always have to come back to work. Either that or they stop paying you, one or the other.

Stay Home

My personally preferred choice of vacation activity, because staying at home and being unbothered by literally everyone else on the planet is my ultimate dream. For people who actually like to be amongst the masses; well, everybody gets tired of people sometimes. Staying home for a few days can actually leave you with a better appreciation for the people you end up not seeing for a bit, which will hopefully help you remember why you enjoyed hanging out with them in the first place.

Visit Denver

I know: visiting Denver is about the most 'touristy' thing you could possibly suggest. That being said, to suggest that visiting the largest city in our state wouldn't be a fun way to spend a vacation is just too stupid for words, even if you live in Colorado full-time. Much like New York City, there is entirely too much going on in Denver for it to be a waste of a vacation. Even if you live in the city, there's always something new to discover.

Spend Some Time in the Wilderness

Colorado has no shortage of cabins and like-property available for rental, so why not spend a week getting in touch with nature? Sure, it may turn into you reading a book in a cabin the whole time, especially if you're an indoor kid, but at least you can say that you did it. Besides, you might get accosted by a bear or something, and then you'll have a story to tell for the rest of your life. Assuming you survive the initial encounter, that is. I always forget that part.
