Heritage Hills is surrounded by a wide variety of top-notch shopping and dining options, work opportunities, and entertainment choices. But it’s also just a short drive from some of the best mountain towns in the world. Consider a weekend getaway to one of these stunning Colorado towns to celebrate the long Labor Day weekend.
- Idaho Springs is a famous Colorado landmark because gold was first discovered here in 1859. However, it remains a popular weekend getaway thanks to its relaxing hot springs. Full of invigorating minerals, these springs will restore your energy and vitality in no time. There are fun activities for the whole family in Idaho Springs, including ATV tours, hikes and wildflower walks, mine tours, and lots of dining and souvenir shopping options.
- Famous as an iconic ski-town, Aspen is also gorgeous in summer, when many off-season deals and discounts are available for weekend vacationers. Stroll downtown and admire the architecture and artful landscaping. Shop ‘til you are ready to drop and then enjoy a meal complete with a view of the mountains from one of Aspen’s many award-winning restaurants.
- One of the most family-friendly vacation destinations in the Rocky Mountains is, of course, Steamboat Springs. Hike in the mountains, swim in the lake, and bike the trails. Resorts abound in this mountain town, which means you can send the kids to the pool while you opt for a couple’s massage, or a drink on a rooftop patio overlooking the stunning vista.
- Use the long weekend to take advantage of the last of the warm weather in Estes Park. Hike, walk, camp, or just drive through the world-famous Rocky Mountain National Park and keep your eyes open for all kinds of wildlife, including elk, moose, deer, and maybe even a bear or two. Spend a day shopping downtown, and go for the creepiest of creepy tours in the Stanley Hotel, the inspiration for Stephen King’s novel, The Shining.
