If Shea is bartending, definitely sit at he bar and tell him Laura sent you. This place does not make the "favorite" list for food but does have a full menu. They definitely have a great selection of beers but also a full bar!

Groceries
Disclaimer, there is a grocery store in Idaho Springs (Safeway) but this store is way better and on the way if heading 70 West. I stock high-end spices and all the condiments, oil butter etc. you will need for cooking. There is also a Natural Grocers right next door if you are looking for unique grocery items and 2 liquor stores.

Shopping Favorites - Georgetown
This is the next door neighbors shop, her name is Diane so say hi if you stop in. She makes the coolest freeze dried candy, but also a quick bite and other "needful things". My favorite is the Charleston Chew and the Skittles, I crush them and top ice cream with them.

This is the best mountain for families, affordable lift tickets and great terrain for beginners and experts. If you are lookin early enough check the website for a 4 pack, they can all be used in one day! If you are going to take lessons ask for Tracy Slacktowitz he is the best!

Great place for a stroll and if you want a more challenging hike there are trails off the back side of the lake. If you are looking to paddleboard this they currently do not have rentals but inquire because I have rental boards. This also has some great fishing. In the winter ice fishing and they set up a driving course on the ice.

Beautiful spot, if you are driving Loveland pass to the continental divide then keep going West on 6 and make a day out of this area. You can rent bikes and paddle boards (or check with me on rentals for the trip). The amphitheater is right over here and the farmers market.

Make reservations early, this is a gorgeous course. They also have a driving range. The restaurant is great and the family can do some shopping in Keystone village and take a gondola ride while you play a quick 8!!

Great spot for an afternoon, this is right past the continental divide. There is dining, shopping , you can ride the gondola with the the family to the top. They have a little adventure course for kids up at the top. They have food and beverage up there too. If you are a hardcore mountain biker this is the place.
