One of the largest sectors of tourism in Colorado is called “heritage tourism” – touring the historic sites around the state. So, the Colorado tourism office and the Colorado Historical Society have put together an amazing website with a timeline of historic Colorado events. Click on a date, region, or category and you are presented with a number of pictures. Click on a picture and it tells the story of the significant person, place, or event in Colorado history. Last I heard the site is continually being developed, so check back often for more content. This is a fun, engaging way for tourists and residents alike to visually learn about our state’s colorful past.
