Yes, Colorado is the most “magical” state in all the land. Well, according to one travel website.

And it’s not because of the marijuana.

“Because regardless of your feelings on legalized pot, Colorado will leave you feeling absolutely magical,” a line reads in the Huffington Post’s travel story. You can read it here.

Here are some of the reasons why our lovely state is so magical.

-300 days of sunshine

Yes! The sun is a wonderful thing. Colorado has 30-40 overcast days per year, according to the Post. Wow! I’ll take it.

-High altitude fun

The state has the highest average elevation in the country. Apparently, we can get drunk faster because of how high up we are. I wouldn’t know.

-Colorado is for beer lovers

Beer me, son! Colorado has plenty of breweries and ranks among the best craft brew states, according to the Post.

-Mountains!

Think of any outdoor activity that can be done in the mountains and the outdoors. Endless.
