Bold Challenge-Taker

Rappel down a rushing, 55-foot waterfall between the limestone walls of Portland Creek Canyon on a canyoning tour with Canyoning Colorado in Ouray.


Hedonistic & Pleasure Focused

Spend a day indulging at the Outlets at Castle Rock (The North Face, Restoration Hardware, Michael Kors and more) followed by a warm-spiced mud wrap and massage at the Woodhouse Day Spa in Castle Pines.


Curious & Communicative

Easily bored Gemini will love the variety of brewery hopping in Fort Collins, which has more than 20 craft breweries, and chatting with brew masters along the way.


Water-Loving Homebody

Escape to the rustic (and clothing-optional) Valley View Hot Springs, near Moffat, where you can soak all day and settle into a cozy cabin right on site at day’s end.


Drama Lover

See Broadway-born plays (and locally conceived productions) at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. Past lineups have included "My Fair Lady," "Mean Girls," "Les Miserables," "STOMP" and more.


Deep Rooted & Down to Earth

Aim to let go of all the details you’ve been keeping track of and ground down with individualized yoga therapy, nutrition therapy and Sadhana guidance at Root Center for Yoga & Sacred Studies near Colorado Springs.


Outdoorsy & Companion Seeking

Go out on a limb and try group forest bathing with the Evergreen Audubon Society. This Japanese practice of simply soaking up the smells, sights and sounds of the outdoors will feed your need for nature while building comradery with fellow souls.


Secret Seeker

Vogel Canyon, in southeast Colorado, is the little-known gem you’ll love to uncover. The placid Purgatoire River meanders through, and you’ll be afforded glimpses of petroglyphs and the remains of an 1870s stagecoach stop.


Adventurous & Freedom Seeking

Feel the freedom of the open road on a drive on the Flat Tops Trail scenic byway, near Yampa, through expansive, wildflower-studded wilderness.


Ambitious & Challenge Relishing

Spend half the day rafting the sapphire waters of the Animas River and the other half flying through above lush forests on 12 fast and furiously fun ziplines with Durango's Mild to Wild Rafting & Jeep Tours.


Humanitarian & Charity Minded

Visit the Boulder Dushanbe Teahouse to sip tea from a menu of some 80 varieties and learn about how the hand-carved and elaborately painted structure was gifted to the city as a symbol of friendship between cultures.


Lover of Arts & Music

Head to Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison for a once-in-a-lifetime concert experience inside a geologic wonder. As locals are fond of saying, it doesn’t really matter who you see perform here — every show is amazing.
