the outdoors

Red Rocks: An icon for a reason, catch a show at this incredible venue with the city sparkling on the horizon, or visit during the day when free yoga and athletic classes take place. Or, just run the stairs.

Chautauqua State Park - Located in Boulder, Colorado, this beautiful state park nestled in the Flat Iron foothills has an abundance of trails for all skill types. After a visit, hit up the Dushanbe Tea House for a really unforgettable experience. 

Ride the Cherry Creek Trail - The best way to see Denver, hands down. Rent a bike from Evo (just two blocks away) or an electric scooter, and cruise down the Cherry Creek Trail around Denver. 

Cheesman Park - This former cemetery turned park (spooky, right?) has some of the best mountain views Denver has to offer and is an urban oasis in the city. Like a super tiny central park where you can sip a beer and enjoy the evening.
