Being in a landlocked state, you are pretty limited in your choice of fresh seafood options. Sure, you could catch a rainbow trout or two and cook them up for dinner. But something about Colorado trout just doesn't sit right with me when I want good seafood. With that in mind, where do you go to get a fresh catch in Colorado?

When you are looking for only the best seafood options, you are going to have to take a drive down to the Denver metro area to get your seafood. However, all those miles you are going to put on your car will be well worth it.
