Happy Friday ATS
After (or before) the meet up in Denver, some members might want to make the most of their trip and check out what Colorado has to offer. Here's a
portion of the info I've gathered about Denver and its surrounding areas so you could start getting as hyped as I am for this trip.
If we do have
members visiting from out of country, feel free to contact me for more info or if you have any questions about getting around or suggestions about
places to visit/stay.
The Southwest US is full of the wonderful intriguing high strangeness that may have brought you to ATS. I am holding off on info from the strangest
of all-- there is a location, 4 hours SW of Denver by car, that has documented weirdness dating back to the 1930s and earlier Native American legends
which I think deserves its own thread. I plan on putting it together and linking it to this one, but for now, enjoy browsing some of the links I have
found about Denver attractions.
Here's a link to a few of Denver's haunted hotspots
You can even stay in Denver's most haunted mansion (funny- the official page does not mention the hauntings..
Stanley Hotel: The hotel which inspired one of the most frightening and genius ghost movies of all time. Steven King got his idea for The Shining
while staying in The Stanley, located in Estes Park, approx 1 hr and 45 min drive from Denver and at the base of Rocky Mountain National Park (also
the locale of some Missing 411 strangeness).
There are hundreds of brewerys in Denver. Here's a Top 30 guide for you to check out:
The Rocky Mountains are home to natural sulfer and artisan hot springs (healing and relaxing!)
Here's a link to 30 of them:
A castle built by an eccentric conspiracy theorist from materials found in the mountains. It's beautiful, remarkable, and
full of insane little rants. An interesting spot in the middle of the mountains:
One of the most amazing natural ampitheaters in the world. I'm not sure if there will be any shows that early in the season, but
it's worth a trip anyway. 20 mins outside of Denver.
Denver has all the regular activities that can be found in any major urban center- good food, great music scene, lively bars, sports, parks and is
compact enough to get around mostly by foot. The lightrail covers nearly 90 miles and serves the airport. I'd also recommend checking out some of
the mountain towns if small scenic towns interest you. There is no shortage of fun, that's for sure!
Also the weather in April is (usually, lol) gorgeous.
Enjoy your weekend!
