Stacker might have the answer. The website recently compiled a list of must-visit hidden gems in the U.S. — and Colorado made the cut.

According to Stacker, the best hidden gem in Colorado is Bishop Castle. Surrounded by the San Isabel National Forest in Rye, the attraction boasts stone towers, iron bridges, and a fire-breathing dragon.

Yes, you read that right. On the roof of the Bishop Castle's Grand Ballroom sits a gigantic, fire-breathing dragon statue, which the landmark's builder, Jim Bishop, created out of scrap metal and a hot air balloon burner in the 1980s.

The Bishop Castle website notes that Bishop, who turned 79 in February, started constructing the attraction from the ground up in 1959 — so it's not only an impressive sight, but also an incredible piece of Colorado history.
