On the edge of the Rockies in Windsor

Just an hour up the interstate from the Mile-High City, Windsor's wide streets and leafy blocks are a delight to behold. They date back all the way to the agricultural boom of the American plains in the 1800s, and owe their existence to the influx of Russo-German settlers who came to these parts to till the land. These days, Windsor offers a quiet, family-friendly base on the edge of Denver and the Rocky Mountains, with hands-on museums that chronicle the farming past of North Colorado, and oodles of cozy Windsor vacation rentals to boot.

Windsor is a ticket to the wild outdoors

With the Rocky Mountains looming just to the west and vast Pawnee National Grasslands spreading out to the east, you can rest assured that there's going to be something to suit the adventure travelers among you, right on the doorstep of most Windsor vacation rentals. In fact, there's a lot that will have you reaching for that well-deserved Denver homebrew at the end of the day, whether it's whitewater rafting on the currents of the Poudre River or soaring in hot air balloons to see the snow-topped rises of the Front Range in the distance.

Wonderful museums in Windsor

It's not all about the great Coloradan backcountry around Windsor. You can also hop within a clutch of acclaimed museums. Start in the Boardwalk Park Museum, where visitors are immersed in reconstructed 19th-century train sheds, old schoolhouses, crooked barns, and historic farmsteads from the golden agricultural age of North Colorado. Then, move on to the Windsor Severance Fire Rescue Museum, where the younger ones are bound to love gawping at classic engines and meeting bona fide firefighters.

Windsor vacation rentals both summer and winter

With all the cozy half-timbered lodges and family Windsor vacation rentals on the menu, you are offered a great base in North Colorado in both summer and winter. The warmer months, which run from May to September, are the best time to come if you're looking to make the most of the walking trails and whitewater rapids along the Poudre River. The colder months, starting in December and lasting to late March, are when you'd hit town with the skis in tow, touting passes to ride the chairlifts of Eldora Mountain.

Windsor is the hub of North Colorado

Like Denver before it, Windsor is blessed with both the flatlands and the peaks. It sits where the rolling plains of the Midwest finally give way to the rugged Rocky Mountains. The Front Range looms on the horizon, forever beckoning hikers and climbers to the beautiful alpine valleys of the Rocky Mountain National Park. That ranges from soaring moraine ridges and the ice sheets of the Moomaw Glacier down to grassy plateaus where bighorn sheep clash between the wildflowers. To the east of town, the Pawnee National Grassland is a contrast, carved by bluffs and dressed in blankets of greenery.
