Starving for some water in the middle of the country? Head out to Grand Lake. Really cool boating scene in the warmer months on one of Colorado's biggest lakes. Boating with stunning mountain views is quite the combo.
Low-key mountain town that makes for a nice day-trip from Denver. If you're looking for some solid hiking, a neighborhood spot to grab lunch and to be back in Denver for dinner, give Lyons a try.

Cool mining town in the Rockies only an hour or so from Denver. Unlike some mountain towns, this one has a decent downtown vibe. If you're looking for a super easy day trip from Denver, Georgetown should be high on your list.

It's reputation speaks for itself. Vail is gorgeous any time of year. Despite being only a couple hours from Denver (traffic dependent), you'll probably want to make it an overnight as there is a lot to see.

A little off the beaten path, Crested Butte is a place for adventure. Skiing in winter, hiking in summer, the breathtaking views will make it worth the extra effort to get here.

Ok, this one is a little far away from Denver, but if you haven't been to Jackson Hole, you gotta go. Jackson is a beautiful bowl in the midst of the Teton Mountains. World-class skiing, food, hiking, and animal-watching are at your finger tips. We highly recommend a "safari" to have a guide point out all the amazing wildlife in the area.
