Colorado Waterfront Homes for Sale


Decorated with the majestic Rocky Mountains, Colorado is the only U.S. state that lies entirely above 3281 feet (1000 meters) in elevation. The states lowest elevation is 3315 feet (1010) meters. Colorado has approximately 550 mountain peaks that exceed 13,123 feet (4000 meters). The highest point is the summit of Mount Elbert at 14,440 feet (4401 meters). The world's largest flat-top mountain is in Grand Mesa.  

Once primarily a mining and agricultural state, Colorado's economy is now driven by the service industries, including medical providers and high tech companies, and other business and professional services.  

Breathtaking scenery and world-class skiing make Colorado a prime tourist destination. Colorado has almost as many “dead” towns (about 500) as “live” ones (650). Mining booms and busts left the mountains littered with more than 300 ghost towns that fascinate locals and tourists. The eastern plains and western canyonlands are also haunted by more than 200 ghost towns.  

Every year Denver hosts the world's largest rodeo, the Western Stock Show.
