Seriously? You can get better food at Taco Bell and they're everywhere!

Colorado-Texas tomato wars. Held near the Leadville/Twin Lakes area, the two sides divide up and throw hundreds of tomatoes at each other.

As a kid of the 80s, I really wanted to go to this when I was younger.

I don't mean to be a party pooper, especially to people who love Colorado, because I do myself, but .... some of the above places are hardly unique. There's a lot of similar places that offer the same beauty, spectacular-ness, etc.

Mesa Verde is unique, for sure.
Silverton. No. there's plenty of other mountain mining towns scattered throughout the West.
Fort Garland - I have no idea.
hotsprings - come on. plenty of great mountain hotsprings in other states.
The San Luis Valley is pretty unique.
Wolf Creek Pass?? Come on. There are as-spectacular or even more spectacular mountain passes in other states.

[quote=CAVA1990;20570488]That's not unique. There are others such as Lake Placid, NY. quote]

The Colorado Springs facility is more than one of two training centers it is also the seat of U.S. Olympic Committee which acts as the coordinating body for all Olympic-related athletic activity.

Wow! Just wow!

I happen to agree with 80skeys. A lot of the stuff being noted in this thread is not "unique" in the sense of "none other".
