Colorado might be landlocked, but that doesn't mean there's any shortage of water. Our state's water sources are in the form of lakes (including some of the bluest in the nation), rivers, streams, creeks, and reservoirs, and Coloradans take full advantage by getting out and enjoying them in every way possible.

Whether that be by fishing, kayaking, wildlife watching paddle boarding, boating, tubing, or some other sport, there are endless opportunities to soak up the benefits of all the different forms of water in the Centennial State.

And even when Coloradans aren't out recreating on the water, citizens still find ways to enjoy it. One of those ways is by taking in views of the water during a meal at one of these Colorado restaurants and bars.
