The Plains & Mountains region is a skier’s and nature lover’s paradise. Enjoy the natural beauty of this region as well as the outdoor sports that are available to you. Camp under the stars or stay in a comfortable resort or ranch. Here are a few highlights:
* Aspen, Colorado: In the summer months, go horseback riding or whitewater rafting. When the snow starts falling, strap on those skis! When you’re finished with the slopes, enjoy Aspen’s music and nightlife.
* Denver, Colorado: Cheer for one of the four major league sports teams. Shop at the 16th Street Mall or catch a performance at one of the Performing Arts Complex’s 8 theaters. If you are looking for some thrills, ride the amusements at Six Flags Elitch Gardens.
* Yellowstone National Park, Montana & Wyoming: Take a Ranger-led walk, see the wildlife and marvel at the natural beauty around you. Check out Old Faithful, the Upper Geyser Basin and the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone.
* Bismarck, North Dakota: Take a trip down the Missouri River in the Lewis & Clark Riverboat. Visit Fort Abraham Lincoln and many other historical buildings. Shop downtown Bismarck for some great souvenirs.
