The Ultimate Getaway: Colorado

It’s no secret that Colorado is an outdoorsman’s absolute paradise. In Great American Country’s original series, Ultimate Sportsman’s Lodge Colorado, viewers are getting a firsthand look at the Centennial State’s natural beauty and wildlife as they follow the build of renowned sportsman Chris Dorsey’s dream home.  I don’t know about you, but it’s got me aching for a trip to the Rockies.

You don’t have to be world-class hunter and fisher to take a trip to the West. From the state’s endless rivers to its stunning mountain vistas, Colorado offers visitors endless opportunities to enjoy the outdoors. Whether you’re planning a trip before the snow melts or waiting until the summer, below are some must-see spots and things to do on your vacation. 

Vail Ski Resort
Colorado boasts 26 ski resorts, but Vail is our top pick for a mountain getaway. From bunny hills to legendary back bowls, the resort is suitable for all levels. If skiing’s not your thing, explore the various shops in the village or cozy up in the lodge with a cup of hot chocolate.

Rocky Mountain National Park
Abundant with lakes, trails and wildlife, this stop is a must. Go for a drive above the Continental Divide on Trail Ridge Road, the highest paved road in the U.S., and end the day with dinner in historic Estes Park.

We love weddings at Great American Country! As a new year begins, here’s a look back at some of the country stars who were engaged or married in 2014:

Jana Kramer celebrated her 31st birthday by saying “yes” to boyfriend Michael Caussin, a professional football player. Caussin gathered a group of Kramer’s family and friends to surprise Kramer with the marriage proposal.

Brantley Gilbert proposed to Amber Cochran, a schoolteacher from his hometown, in October. Gilbert calls Cochran “the one who got away” and admits that a number of his songs, including “More Than Miles” and “You Don’t Know Her Like I Do,” are about her. The couple plan to wed in June 2015.

Jerrod Niemann and his new wife, Morgan Petek, were married on Sunday, October 12 in San Juan, Puerto Rico. The ceremony was held at sunset in Castillo de San Cristobal, a historic Spanish fort that overlooks the Atlantic Ocean. Instead of wedding gifts, the couple asked that donations be made to Niemann’s nonprofit, Free the Music USA.

Florida Georgia Line’s Tyler Hubbard proposed to longtime girlfriend Hayley Stommel in September. The couple got engaged during a romantic helicopter ride. Hubbard posted a photo on Instagram of the couple celebrating with champagne aboard the chopper.
