Many Colorado residents get to enjoy the convenience of city life while having access to endless adventures that are simple day trips from Denver. From lively cities to charming towns, and fourteeners to some of the highest roads in North America, Colorado has a wide variety of experiences to offer, and Denver is the perfect gateway for enjoying these destinations. If you’re wanting to get out of the hustle and bustle of the city, here are some of those locations and why they’re worth your visit, with Denver as your basecamp.
As you wind your way up the highest paved road in North America - past rolling slopes, a mountain lake and meadows covered with wildflowers - you’ll arrive well above the treeline and 134 feet from the summit of Mount Evans. This allows daytrippers to experience a tundra landscape up close and personal. Also accessible via hiking, the tundra environment of Mount Evans offers a unique experience worthy of your bucket list.
In north-central Colorado at 11,900 feet above sea level, you can begin a scenic, though somewhat challenging, journey along Hwy 6, commonly known as Loveland Pass Road. This mountain road will take you to the summit of Loveland Pass, the state’s 5th highest mountain pass.
Nestled in the upper Clear Creek Valley at more than 9,000 feet, about 45 miles west of Denver, lies the sleepy little town of Silver Plume, Colorado. Although some consider Silver Plume a “living ghost town” due to its tiny population of 200 and mostly vacant 19th-century buildings, there’s still plenty worth seeing and doing in and around this former silver mining town.
Celebrate Christmas festivities nestled in the Rocky Mountains in Georgetown’s historic downtown! The 60th Annual Christmas Market is a two-weekend celebration of traditional European festivities, including a procession of chorale singers, a visit from St. Nicholas, delicious food and treats.
If you’re planning a trip to Georgetown, don’t forget to pack the fishing pole! With simple, drive-up access to Georgetown Lake and an abundance of streams and back-country ponds, you're bound to find the perfect spot to catch a big one.
You know the pit stop, but it’s so much more than that. It’s a destination full of recreation and stellar views. With its location less than an hour from Denver, Georgetown is the perfect place to get away for a weekend or day trip.
