When you live in a state like Colorado, you don’t need to go far to have fun. Whether you have a day off or are planning a weekend outing with the family, here are some fun – and healthy – ways you can be a tourist in your own town.
With 40 stations and 300 bikes, BCycle is a bike-sharing program that will help you see the best of Boulder for only $8 a day.
In Denver’s River North (RiNo) neighborhood, you can enjoy a close-to-home gastronomical getaway at two local halls featuring artisan foods: The Source and Denver Central Market . Take your food journey into your own hands and make the most of your summertime farmers market trip.
With more than 100 miles of path to explore, Colorado Springs’ urban trails system helps you take the road less traveled as you explore the city by foot.
Tweak your winter sports excursions by taking them nocturnal. Try night skiing at Keystone Resort, moonlight snowshoe tours at Copper Mountain Resort or evening snowshoe adventures at Breckenridge Nordic Center.
Need some “me” time? Denver’s Brown Palace Hotel Spa offers a decadent getaway from the everyday. On a budget? Visit the Colorado School of Healing Arts in Lakewood where you can get a massage or spa treatment from a masseuse-in-training at a fraction of the price.
