30 Amazing Places You Can Go On One Tank Of Gas From Denver
Colorado has a multitude of superbly scenic byways, but the adventure-filled Lariat Loop is the state’s only urban byway and is closer to the metro area than any other. This rich 40-mile route provides access to a wealth of historical, cultural, and natural landmarks, where you can experience the thrills of mountains and foothills outside the city at more than 30 museums and interpretive sites, over 25,000 miles of open space and mountain parks, and 150 stunningly scenic square miles of pure Colorado beauty. The Lariat Loop provides access to all of the amazing attractions in the historic towns of Golden, Evergreen, Morrison, and everything along the way. You can choose a pre-planned trip or design your own route on the official site for the Lariat Loop National Scenic Byway, “Forty Miles of Western Adventure” and undoubtedly one of the most picturesque places to visit around Denver!
