Summary and Info
After having used a Frommer's New Mexico, and Frommer's California, I was shocked by the incompleteness of this guide. We stayed in Dillon, Colorado for a week. The guide had one little blurp about Dillon Schoolhouse museum. Frommer's Colorado guide also had nothing on Central City, Black Hawk, and at least a dozen other towns we visited or drove through. There was also nothing on Independence Pass (above Aspen) and multiple other high mountain passes we traversed. Approximately 1 out of every 3 things we looked up in the guide were missing. For us it was a waste of money. This guide may be OK for you if you are only going to big tourist draws like Vail, Aspen, or Rocky Mountain National Park. It does have useful information about the towns and areas it covers. However, if you really go out and explore like we do, this guide will come up short with its omissions. We ended up buying "The Colorado Guide" by Caughey & Winstanley. It provided us with the information we wanted to know. We also used "John Fielder's Best of Colorado" book as we traveled. This large book has amazing color photographs taken throughout Colorado. It is not designed to be a stand alone guidebook. However, it is an incredible visual feast, and a great photographic guide of "where and when" to take pictures in Colorado.
