With 43 state parks and 4 national parks they probably won’t be interested in video games anymore. How are you going to get them back in front of the TV?

The world-class skiing is always luring people in, so they might want to look at colleges or jobs here, meaning you’ll have to keep coming back to visit.

Locals might smile and wave at them, some may even go so far as to say hello and be friendly.

They might get addicted to tacos. Where are you going to buy good green chili back home?

And pizza with really, really thick crust (like at Beau Jo’s). Once you’ve had Colorado style pizza, that delivery chain by your home just won’t cut it anymore.

When you’re driving over a beautiful mountain pass looking at the leaves changing color, you’ll probably see deer or elk walk by, maybe even a moose, which could cause a lifelong interest in wildlife. That local zoo just isn’t going to cut it anymore.

Speaking of the mountains, they might want to climb one. There are many climbing walls to get their practice in, good luck dissuading them.

A trip to Coors Field (or anywhere, really) will certainly require sunblock. And we have 300 days of sunshine a year, so you’ll have to buy the large bottle.

The Children’s Museum of Denver was specifically designed to keep them engaged, meaning they won’t want to take a nap in the afternoon.

They’ll get wet while whitewater rafting, and you won’t be able to get them to shut up about it.

After going to Casa Bonita, they might forget about McDonald’s. Birthday parties back home will never be the same.
