SUMMER ADVENTURE FOR SINGLES IN COLORADO
For those of you who look at Colorado as a winter wonderland, the summer to me is even more magical. Everywhere you go, you will experience astonishment at the beautiful sights. The people are so warm and friendly and we discovered fantastic restaurants as well!
You can choose to be extremely athletic and adventurous or just enjoy the views. The best part of traveling with other singles is sharing all the experiences and getting to make new friends.
We explored Denver- Great dynamic city with a lot of diversity! Denver seems to have a great night life and many places for single people to go. Stayed at the Magnolia Hotel, great boutique hotel centrally located and included excellent full breakfast, wine for happy hour and milk and cookies at night. Just what we needed!
Visited the Red Rock Amphitheater (Yes and climbed all the stairs! This has to be the most amazing place to see a concert but unfortunately no one was playing the day we were there! Now we have to go back!)
Drove to the quaint town of Estes Park and got to explore the Stanley Hotel, from the movie “The Shining”. Adventure, adventure and more adventure! Then drove into Rocky Mountain National Park to have a picnic and hike around the beautiful Lakes. Some people even hiked the waterfalls!
Drove to Telluride-My favorite Festival City! Another city with a lot of single people. I have 3 words for this town-gorgeous, inspiring and fun. Hiked Bridal Falls, Gondola ride, and of course great shopping and food! Got served cocktails and dinner in the hot tub at our beautiful rustic Lodge- “The Hotel Telluride.”
Drove to Durango- a fun, laid back town with lots of activities with an old western flavor. Home to beautiful, old original hotels and the famous “Durango-Silverton Train.” Had fun exploring the San Juan Mountains on a jeep ride and some of the group went horseback riding at a great stable. Explored Mesa Verde National Park-home to the original cliff dwellings of the Ancestral Pueblo people.
Got to enjoy Glenwood Hot Springs on way to the city of Colorado Springs. Since our great guide Bob, knew all the off the beaten path places, we had lunch in a truly western town and went to the Museum Of The Mountain West. There we learned about the old west by actually being guided through historical buildings filled with authentic artifacts displayed in authentic setting. We even made a stop at a fabulous Vineyard in Cortez and now everyone is hooked on the wines from Guy Drew vineyards! There will be a lot of ordering going on! Like I always say it is not always the destination but the experiences you have along the way!
Our last place that we stayed was Colorado Springs-scenically wonderful! We explored the famous Broadmoor Hotel, rode the Cog Railroad up to Pikes Peak, had a tour through the Cave Of Winds, hiked 7 Falls and Garden of the Gods. And let’s not forget the massages at the beautiful spa in the hotel! Talk about an action packed 10 days! All in all it was a fabulous trip and no one wanted to leave.
Till next time……
