Your Apartment Search is Over. It’s Time to Explore!

Take In a Rockies Game

Looking for a way to ease yourself into the state to get a feel for how people act in Colorado? There’s no better way to do that than by heading to a Rockies game. “Wait, aren’t they terrible?” you might find yourself asking. To tell you the truth, it depends on the year. As luck would have it, the Rockies are off to a pretty good start this year. They currently hold a 17-15 record as of the time of this writing and they’re sitting at 2nd in the National League West.

The really great news is that win or lose, it’s a blast to visit Coors Field. Whether you’re a baseball fan or not, you’ll find plenty to love in the park. There are a number of great restaurants to enjoy, but if you want an authentic experience, make your way over to the Number 17 Burger Shack and grab a Helton Burger. It’s on the left field concourse and it’s pretty hard to miss because it’s a ballpark favorite in the Mile High City.

Head to Estes Park

If you want to get out of the city and do a bit of exploring, Estes Park is hard to beat. No matter what you like to do, you’ll find that there’s plenty of fun to be had in Estes. Located about an hour and a half away from Littleton, it’s pretty easy to make a day trip. Just hop on I-25, take that to US-36 West and follow the signs until you arrive in this quaint town.

Are you a Stephen King fan? Head to the Stanley Hotel, which served as the inspiration for King’s creation, the Overlook Hotel, in his fan-favorite novel The Shining. Want to do some fishing? There are a number of guided fishing tours to enjoy. Prefer to do some hiking? Rocky Mountain National Park is hard to beat. Whatever you choose to do in Estes Park, you’re sure to have a blast.

Visit Fort Collins

What’s in Fort Collins, you ask? A college town located about an hour and fifteen minutes north of Littleton, Fort Collins is quickly growing into a go-to destination in Colorado. It all starts with the restaurants. Whether you visit Big Al’s Burgers and Dogs, Music City Hot Chicken, or Cafe Mexicali, Fort Collins is becoming known for its food scene.

It’s also something of a hotspot for local microbreweries. Colorado is already known for being a great place to visit for people who love beer, but there are around 20 breweries in Fort Collins and more in close proximity if that’s not enough for you.

After you’ve had your fill of food and drink, head on over to Horsetooth Reservoir to have a bit of fun in the sun. As the Larimer County website notes, you’ll enjoy “six and one-half miles of water” that is “surrounded by 1,900 acres of public lands.” It doesn’t get much better than that.
