So many things to do, so little time.
Welcome to March where we’re just a step away from spring! The Mile High City normally collects the most snow, so head into the month with that in mind. For March, we’ll be finishing off the last of the winter season and heading into spring so this list will reflect that with many cozy indoor and winter-focused outdoor activities to enjoy in Denver and around. With so many restaurants, cultural events, and bars, 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, what’s ending soon, and what some of the coolest activities are in Denver. Here’s your guide to March 2022 in Denver.
The popular Candlelight series back in Denver, and they’re doing some really amazing tributes to some of culture’s most iconic musicians. A tribute to Coldplay will kick off the month followed by a tribute to Queen and even a tribute to the queens of disco themselves, Abba.
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.
What began as a 19th century Victorian retreat space has now become the world’s biggest mineral pool. Glenwood Hot Springs is a beautiful, secluded resort that’s a short drive away from some of the best skiing in Colorado, like Snowmass and Aspen, and is the shortest drive from Sunlight Mountain Resort. The springs are perfect year-round, sitting at a comfortable 92 degrees during all seasons, and is open daily from 9am to 9pm. Pool reservation isn’t required, but is on a first-come, first-serve basis, with lodge guests getting guaranteed access to the pool.
Denver Restaurant Week is an annual week of exclusive, budget menus from some of Denver’s most talented chefs, and we couldn’t be more excited about who is participating this year. Denver Restaurant Week will be taking place from March 11th to 20th, so you have plenty of time to try out as many menus as your budget and stomach can handle.
Weekend traffic on the I-70 is the absolute worst so we thought we’d try to avoid it all together. With Colorado having so many other viable options–plus there being an alternative route to big resorts like Breckenridge and Vail-we put together this list to help you find the quickest routes to spend the least amount of time in traffic and more time shredding.
What makes a Bucket list cocktail? One-of-a-kind, unique ingredients, and well-made. Thanks to Denver having a big array of amazing mixologists and cocktail spots, Denver has got some great cocktails to try like their Smoked Old Fashioned and Macadamia Nut cocktails.
The Beacon is the latest to be added to Denver’s vibrant and quirky bar scene. This isn’t just your normal bar experience though–it’s a place for artists and creative people to gather and connect on a human level. The bar, that just recently opened, has an eclectic mix of inspirations behind it–from the tropical beachy bars of Tulum to the tech-forward bars of Tokyo combined with art installations that remind you of stepping into Burning Man or other festivals.
Mexican street food is taken to new heights by the owner, James Beard Awards nominated Dana Rodriguez, who, if you haven’t noticed, has really taken the Denver restaurant scene by storm. Not only does she have her own line of Mezcal, but she’s also the new owner of Cantina Loca, plus she’s the executive chef behind the improved food of the new Casa Bonita.
