So many things to do, so little time.
This may have been the coldest February on record in a really long time, but warmer days are upon us, and that means more time outside! The Mile High the best place to live during the warmer spring months, with so many beautiful recreational areas surrounding Denver. Not to mention, delicious restaurants to try and old favorites to revisit. There’s just not enough time to do everything, but at least with this list, you’ll have a better guide as to what’s going on this month only, what’s ending soon, and what some of the coolest activities are in Denver.
Imagine experiencing an amplified sense of taste and smell as the rest of your senses are obscured in darkness. That’s the sensory experience that Dining In the Dark allows for. After being blindfolded and escorted to your table, sit down to an extravagant four-course meal you will likely never forget. Tickets are going fast, so don’t miss out before its too late.
There’s been a lot of snow this winter season here in Denver, and around the whole state as well! If you’re still interested in some cool snowy getaways or recreational snow outside, hurry and head on over to some of Colorado’s snowiest cities before the season is over.

Grab a drink at this beloved Denver dive bar, once frequented by Bob Dylan when he was in his late teens. Pete’s Satire Lounge has been around for the long-haul, and was closed for 11 long months due to the pandemic. Now, you can finally enjoy a tall cold beer after ordering some pork tacos from Pete’s Kitchen while sitting on Pete’s brand new outdoor patio.

As the weather warms up, that means we’re going to be able to get out into that crispy mountain air a little more every day. Before starting any hikes, biking, or skiing, you definitely gotta stop and try one of these breakfast burritos that the city has got to offer. From burritos dripping with green Chile to vegan avocado burritos, Denver’s got a bit of everything.

Just 25 days until spring, which means hiking season is pretty much here already. If you haven’t done so yet, you definitely need to check out this beautiful hike that leads to a stunning blue oasis. The Blue Lakes Trail is located in the Mt. Sneffels Mountains and has beautiful panoramic views of the Uncompahre National Forest and mountains around, as well as these stunning crystal clear lakes. We think it’s well worth the drive.
