2. Hang out with some friends
If you're feeling brave, try the Via Ferrata Course with AVA. A Via Ferrata, which means "iron way" in Italian, is a method of mountaineering and rock climbing that's been used in Europe for centuries. You will use a variety of sources including ladders, rungs, rails, cables and bridges to make your way up a cliff face. Don't worry, this is a guided tour, you won't be left to your own devices. If you're concerned about safety rest assured, you'll be locked up tight with the advanced internal locking system in the carabiners that make it impossible to clip out of both carabiners at the same time ensuring you're always connected to the cable. You will be physically challenged, but the unbelievable views and bragging rights make it well worth it.

3. A cunning segway
If a little drive through some stunning canyons doesn't offend you, then make your way over to Canon City to cruise over the Royal Gorge Bridge on a Segway with Ilean Tours. The Royal Gorge bridge is the highest single suspension bridge in North America, spanning 1,260 feet across the Royal Gorge and 1,053 feet over the Arkansas River. This is a whole new level of fun that you can add to your bucket list. If you're feeling a little queasy thinking about riding across the bridge you can opt for a more relaxed, but equally awesome tour riding a Segway around historic Canon City, Colorado.
