About the area
While most people think of mountain destinations like Evergreen as a seasonal experience, there are so many things to do and places to go within a short distance that Colorado Dream Vacation® is truly is a year-round destination. Summer time is a great time for fishing, hiking, bike riding, checking out local festivals and mountain parks. Kids have a great time at Dinosaur Ridge, or Heritage Square in Golden! Heritage Square Amusement Park in Golden is about 25 minutes away and has a 220 ft double zip line, go karts, boats, golf, an arcade, and rides including a ferris wheel and tilt-a-whirl, and all kinds of fun things to do! The zoo in Denver is phenomenal too! Right around Evergreen, there's canoeing, paddle boats, and tons of walking/hiking trails in Evergreen and the Lake. In the fall, don't miss the Aspens and the leaves turning to the fire neon gold! Absolutely stunning! There are so many great roads with outstanding scenery to take short trips, up to a full day trip, returning to Colorado Dream Vacation®, and the warmth of the hot tub, with the view! Winter, of course, is skiing for the whole family, about an hour away in Breckenridge, A Basin, Keystone or Winter Park. Nearby Echo Mountain caters to snow boarders, and there's always old fashion sledding on the property. Evergreen Lake is so close and there's still so much to enjoy there! Ice fishing, ice skating, hockey, along with of course snow men, and snow fish, and whatever you can imagine making! Spring brings snow melt, which is a great time for white water rafting! Spring is beautiful with the spring flowers, and the smell of newness in the air! Horseback riding is great fun virtually all year long, and indoor swimming is at Wulf Recreation Center in Evergreen.
Don't forget how close we are to downtown Denver too! Professional hockey, football, and baseball are 30-40 minutes away! Red Rocks Ampitheater is about 20 minutes away with a history of world class musicians taking the stage. Don't miss the view of Denver from here, or the museum that in the lower level-it's amazing!
