Sloan's Lake is really close to my home. It's a great 2.5 mile walk around the entire loop and provides city and mountain views, as well as excellent people watching. Grab brunch at the popular Rupert's at the Edge before or after!

RiNo is a great area to walk around and explore! Walk down alleys and unexpected corners to see gorgeous, unique and inspiring art. Stop in Denver Central Market to grab ice cream or coffee to have with you on your walk. Check out boutiques or a couple of breweries on your exploration!

Many people don't know that Red Rocks isn't just for concerts - you can visit at any time! Stand on the stage and admire the setting or run the rocks for a great workout. There are plenty of trails all around the park for you to hike for as long or as short of a distance as you want. It is typically very sunny, so wear your sunscreen! Note that the amphitheater part of Red Rocks is NOT dog friendly, but the rest of the trails are.

This is my favorite area to hike close to Denver! The Three Sisters Peak is a fun, beautiful and steady loop that will get a workout in without being too difficult. Look out for mountain bikers and bring your dog! You can explore the adorable mountain town of Evergreen after your hike - Lariat Lodge Brewing is my fave spot to grab a beer and fries with a view.

A challenging, popular hike in Boulder, I enjoy taking the valley loop up and the peak trail (it's steeper) down. Expect to see plenty of dogs and people.

Unique bloody marys in an adorable setting with *amazing* food! The flavors are extraordinary! If it's snowing, get a seat by the front window to watch the flakes fall. If it's nice out, grab a patio seat in the back.

My goodness this place is amazing. Go for the experience of the chef's tasting menu...if you really want to go all out, try the 10 course option, which takes about 2.5 hours. Obviously saki is a must.

Close by, the new Edgewater Public Market is great for lunch or happy hour. There are a ton of food options inside where you walk up and order, then find a table. The upstairs patio has an airstream bar and there's even a brewery inside. Some great local stores, including cute boutiques (my favorite is Artisan's Thrive, which sells ethically made goods that support female education globally) and a zero-waste market. Great for families!
