Take a spin around the zodiac to determine which Colorado adventure is destined to resonate with your astrological leanings.
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.
See Broadway-born plays (and locally conceived productions) at the Denver Center for the Performing Arts. The 2021 lineup includes "Tootsie," "Hadestown" 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 a yoga retreat (featuring movement, organic foods, outdoor exploration and more) at SunMountain Center near Manitou 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.
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.
AMBITIOUS & CHALLENGE RELISHING
Zipline above the Colorado River with heart-stopping views of Glenwood Canyon. Then regroup with your friends at No Name Bar & Grill for food and drinks — all arranged by Colorado Adventure Center via their Happy Hour Zip Tour.
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.
