Many celebrities either visit Colorado frequently or have even made it their second home, to escape the hustle and bustle of places like Hollywood and New York City. Famous people like Arnold Schwarzenegger, William H. Macy, and Katherine Heigl have often been seen out and about in the Centennial State, doing everyday activities, such as shopping or dining at local restaurants.

Here, celebrities feel as though they can walk down the sidewalk without being bombarded by the paparazzi. That being said, it's still exciting to encounter a celebrity in Colorado, especially if it's in a place you'd least expect.
