Colorado is quickly emerging as a hot spot for travelers of all types. Fly in to Denver, check in to the new Ramble Hotel in the Mile-High City’s bohemian River North Art District, grab a killer cocktail from the lobby bar, Death & Co, and then take in the prime spring weather in this burgeoning but still laid-back city. The 50-room boutique hotel will serve as a stellar home-away-from-home for the weekend designed for lounging, mingling, and, of course, sipping.
The athletically inclined visitors can cruise down to Boulder for the weekend’s annual 10K race that loops through the Bohemian city. If running isn’t your thing, get in on the Memorial Day action by heading straight to the finish line at Folsom Field, where F-16 fighter aircrafts will fly over a crowd set to be 70,000-deep and skydivers will leap from above. For a post-race libation, we recommend Oak at Fourteenth, where cozy interiors greet you and mixologists serve refreshing and sufficiently boozy cocktails—as if the dizzying altitude wasn’t enough.
