Here is just a snapshot of the latest additions in Colorado. The Colorado Tourism Office’s list was long and impressive, so we narrowed it down to standouts for groups to check out.  

Activities

City on the Side gives passengers the opportunity to experience Colorado from a completely unique perspective on a classic Russian Ural cT sidecar motorcycle. Four tours are planned for 2018, including Essential Denver City Tour, South Mountain Exploration, North Mountain Exploration and Peak to Peak/Estes Park. 

Earth Treks Climbing and Fitness is debuting its newest gym in Englewood this year. Encompassing more than 53,000 square feet, it is the largest climbing gym in the United States. In addition to roped climbing and bouldering terrain, there is a yoga studio, functional fitness and cardio zones, training areas, climbing classes and more. 

Lodging News

Head south on Highway 285 to Buena Vista and find peace and productivity at Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort in nearby Nathrop. The resort is debuting 25 new guest rooms overlooking Chalk Creek and located east of the Main Lodge in June.

Culinary & Market Scene

Slated to open this summer and anchored by The Maven hotel, Dairy Block is Denver’s newest micro-district. Originally the location of Windsor Dairy, Dairy Block will feature restaurants, innovative retailers, cocktail bars and Milk Market, a food hall by acclaimed chef Frank Bonanno. 

The latest addition to the Colorado Springs beer and food scene is Oskar Blues Grill & Brew. Located in the heart of downtown, highlights include underground bocce courts, a patio and 48 rotating Oskar Blues and other American craft beers on tap.  

There also is a new Oskar Blues Grill & Brew on the 1600 block of Market Street in Denver’s LoDo district with a Southerninspired menu and 48 beers on tap. The location pays homage to rock legends and includes a downstairs music venue, The Black Buzzard, that is fully equipped with A/V capabilities for private events. 

More good news for meetings and events continues to pour out of the Gerald R. Ford International (GFIA) Airport.

The airport reported an almost 6 percent increase in passengers—2,811,622 total in 2017—flying and in out of the Grand Rapids facility. That record established the best year in the airport’s 54-year history, and marked the fifth straight year of record-setting growth.

The airport saw growth in 11 of 12 months during 2017, and experienced 53 months of growth over a 60-month period.

 

After falling under disrepair for years, Theater on the Lake has emerged from renovations as a brand-new indoor-outdoor venue just in time for summer events.
