Coors Field baseball stadium - 5.4 miles - $9 uber/lyft

Im not a huge baseball fan but the games can be fun. Tip: Buy "Rooftop" tickets. Theres no traditional seating, but tickets are $16 and it comes with a $6 concession coupon. Also, beers are $3 before the first pitch;)

Downtown bars - 5 - 7 miles - $9 uber/lyft

Lodo: Check out Zanzibar for pool, Larimer Beer Hall for dance club up top and a bar on bottom, Ginn Mill for a no cover dance club with free popcorn, Tap fourteen for rooftop craft beers and distilled spirits, 1up for video games, Viewhouse/Tavern/Lodos for the big club atmosphere, Beta/Vinyl/Church for electonic clubs

  Rino: Rino is a bit north of the Lodo/16th st mall scene. Lots of art murals on buildings. Lots of breweries like Epic, Great Divide, and Beryls. Work and Class has great food, Los Chingones has a summer rooftop, Nocturne for the jazz club, Larimer Lounge and Whiskey bar for dives. 

Highlands: The Highlands (not Highlands Ranch) are right across i25 from downtown Denver. One of my favorite spots to go. Avanti has an awesome rooftop bar with views of downtown and one of those shared eating concepts with quite a few different options. Its also a good alternative to the higher tempo Lodo club atmosphere. Linger has great food and atmosphere, and Little Man Ice Cream is right outside. Ale house for beers. Plenty of excellent restaurant choices, sushi bars, and coffee shops.

South Broadway: South of downtown area that has an edgier vibe to it. Plenty of dive type bars, dispenseries, and restaurants. The hornet does a great bloody mary bar for brunch on weekends. Historians or Irish Rover are fun bars I go to when I get the chance. 3 Kings Tavern does a drag show. Skylark Lounge has lots of bands play there.

East Colfax: Fun street East of downtown. Tons of bars and restaurants. There are always hobos hanging around Colfax. Go to Sanchos Grateful Dead bar. 

Union Station - 6.8 miles - $10 uber/lyft

Where the train from the airport drops you off at. If you arrive for breakfast, Snooze does a great one. Walk across Wynkoop street to go to Machete Tacos, Jax's Fish House, or Wynkoop Brewery. You are also just a block from the top of the 16th St Mall or a few blocks away from the Lodo bars and clubs. There are a few dispensaries around, but whenever you buy downtown, it will always be more expensive. If you have transportation and care about price, you should check out or weedmaps for better deals. 

The famous Red Rocks amphitheater - 18 miles

If you care about music and concerts and you havent been to Red Rocks to see a show, what are you doing with your life? Its a music venue amphitheater carved into the Rocky Mountains. Every band wants to play Red Rocks. The acoustics are amazing. There are hiking trails scattered around. Its also a popular workout and yoga destination. For concerts, there is a Red Rocks shuttle that leaves from Union Station downtown :)

Settlers Park free hiking (Boulder) - 22 miles

If you want to go do a quick hike and climb around some sweet rock formations then go get a beer or happy hour on Pearl Street in Boulder, this is the place. You can literally have a beer at the new Oscar Blues bar, walk down the street and do a sweet hike, then walk back for happy hour at Centros Mexican Kitchen. All within an hour or two. Its also only a 30 minute car ride from HostelKush or an express bus ride on the Flatiron Flyer from Union or Westminster Light Rail Stations. No camping. 30 minute drive from Hostel Kush/TreesBNB. Beginner.

Green Mountain free hiking (Boulder) - 25 miles
 Great option for a 30 to 45 minute hike. More strenuous than Settlers Park, but better views on top. Once on top, there are 360 views of the deep rockies. 30 minute drive from Hostel Kush or TreesBNB. No camping. Intermediate.

Sugarloaf Mountain/Switzerland Trail - 32 miles
I love going to this place. Its only a 40 minute drive from Hostel Kush/TreesBNB. There is free camping. Great off-roading trails. Sugarloaf Peak is only a 20 minute hike to the top and has great 360 views of the deep rockies and Longs Peak. Beginner.

Mt. Sanitas free hiking (Boulder) - 23 miles

This is a bit more challenging version of the Settlers Park "Hike" described above. No camping. Not quite as close to the Pearl Street bars in Boulder, but almost. 30 minute drive from Hostel Kush/TreesBNB. Intermediate.

Lost Gulch Overlook (Boulder) - 25 miles
Great views of the front range deep Rockies. 30 minutes from Hostel Kush/TreesBNB. No hiking necessary. No camping. 

St. Marys Glacier - 47 miles
Full year glacier. 1 mile hike to lake and glacier area from parking lot. Frozen lake during winter. No camping. Very scenic and picturesque. Less than an hour drive from Hostel Kush. Beginner.

Guanella Pass (Georgetown) - 52 miles

One of my favorite spots. Take the Georgetown exit off i70 West, then drive through the quaint downtown and follow signs for Guanella Pass Road. There is a ton of open space and a nice creek after you pass the "Xcel Energy Cabin. Elevation is around 10,500ft. If you want to camp and the hike a "14er" mountain the next morning, this is a great option. Mt. Bierstadt (elevation 14,060) is right down the road. 

Chief Mountain (Near Evergreen) - 39 miles
Trailhead is about an hour from HostelKush/TreesBNB. Good hiking trail that will take you above tree line to a nice peak with 360 views. Hike is about an hour. This is in the middle of Mount Evans Wilderness. You can get lost if you dont stay on the trail off the top (Happened to me haha!). Intermediate.

Mount Evans - 63 miles
An hour and a half drive from HostelKush/TreesBNB. This is a 14,265' mountain that you can drive up. Its an awesome spot. Only open during the summer. Be careful driving! Sharp dropoffs and narrow road on the way up! 

Echo Lake/Summit Lake - 48 miles
These 2 lakes are on the drive up to Mount Evans. Echo Lake is a great option during the winter. The road will still be open, and the lake freezes, so you can walk on it for some of the winter! There are tons of trails and spots to hang out around the lakes. Summit Lake is higher elevation that Echo, and will also be closed during the winter.

Ski Resorts
There are at least 10 ski resorts within an hour and a half drive from Denver. If there is a snow storm or its a weekend, plan on at least another hour to get there. If you are renting gear, rent it in Denver! It will be double the price if you rent at the resorts.
Breckenridge - 83 miles. Best night life out of the ski resort towns. Tallest ski lift in North America. $160 to $180 for a 1 day lift ticket. 
Loveland - 59 miles. Best value for your money. Good beginner runs. Only about an hour from Denver. $70 for a 1 day lift ticket. But you might be able to search for cheaper deals on the internet or magazines. 
Arapahoe Basin - 66 miles. Also great value for your money. $70. It is a bit more of a treacherous drive since you have to drive through Loveland Pass to get there. There are no beginner runs. If you are experienced, it has great skiing and riding. New The Beavers lift is awesome for black tree runs and powder hunters.
