Springtime fun in sunny Colorado

Spring is here!  What better way to embrace this gorgeous weather by making plans to get outside and enjoy the season?  Here are a few things happening near you…

  1. The Colorado Rockies had their opening game on April 6th.  After an hour delay due to snow, the first pitch was thrown out with a temperature of 27 degrees.  It was the coldest first pitch at a home opener, in franchise history!  But don’t fret, temperatures should be picking up enough to make almost any spring game enjoyable.  Fingers crossed!  Read more about what’s new at Coors Field here!  Take a look at the 2018 schedule here.coorsfield
  2. Check out the summer concert line-up at Red Rocks Amphitheater.  If nothing suits your fancy, consider visiting for a day trip anyway.  “If you think of Red Rocks Park as just a beautiful place to see a concert, think again! Around you are 738 total acres of deer, dinosaurs, pines and prairie, geological wonders and spectacular vistas.  At 6,450 feet above sea level, Red Rocks Park is a unique transitional zone where the Great Plains meet the Rocky Mountains. The diverse environment allows visitors to see plants, birds and animals of both regions.  Red Rocks Amphitheatre is a geological phenomenon – the only naturally-occurring, acoustically perfect amphitheatre in the world. From Sting and The Beatles, to opera stars and U2, every artist aspires to play on this magical, spiritual and emotional stage.”  With an amazing line-up of concerts and on-going fitness activities, including Saturday morning yoga and barre classes, there is something for everyone!redrocks
