If you’re spending some time in the Denver area this spring, there are plenty of Colorado activities to indulge in during your stay.  Paired with some incredible food and craft breweries, you’ve got a fun weekend on your hands!

Friday Night

Concert at Red Rocks

What would a trip to Denver be without a show at one of the most well known and notorious music venues?  Watch your favorite band jam at the outdoor amphitheater and catch some incredible views as you dance the night away.

Saturday Morning

Grab some brunch at one of the many delicious breakfast joints in the mile-high city as you make your way over to Idaho Springs.  It’s only a 30 minute drive into the mountains on I-70, and the historic mountain town rich in history of mining is quite the place to spend your Saturday.

Colorado Zipline Tour

Fly among the treetops as you marvel at the beautiful Colorado scenery on this 6-line zipline course along the cliffside.  You’ll find yourself crossing a plethora of unique suspended bridges as you venture amidst the mountaintops.  Views of the Continental Divide act as your backdrop on this excursion, and you’ll bond with your group as you get your heart racing high above Idaho Springs.

Saturday Afternoon


You’ll be in much need of a cold brew after your cliffside adventure with AVA, so swing over to the main drag of Idaho Springs and make your way to Tommyknocker Brewery for the best beer around.  Knock down a bubbly beverage, then explore the many shops in Idaho Springs before you make your way back to the Denver area.

Denver Nightlife

There are a jubilee of night clubs and great spots to grab a drink on a Saturday evening in Denver.  Choose between a speakeasy, billiards room, live music, and much more as you wander the streets of downtown Denver.

Sunday Morning

Boulder Bound

While you’re in the Denver area, you should definitely add a day in Boulder on your to-do list.  This culture-filled college town is home to some great hikes and mouth watering cuisine.  Grab some lunch in Boulder before you head just an hour northwest to Rocky Mountain National Park.

Venture through Rocky Mountain National Park

This is true Colorado wilderness at its best, with jagged rising peaks, crystalline lakes sparkling in the sun, opportune wildlife encounters and trickling alpine streams.  It’s no surprise this is the third most visited national park in America. Great family hikes in Rocky Mountain National Park include Gem Lake (the trailhead is located outside the park in Estes Park) and Bridal Veil Falls (a long, but gentle walk with a waterfall reward).

Finally, sit back and relax on Sunday evening as you look back on a fun and action filled weekend in the colorful state of Colorado.  The amount of events and activities surrounding the city are endless.  Call AVA Rafting & Zipline today if you need more ideas for adventure, or book online today!
