What's New in Colorado
DENVER
Denver is an outdoor city with spectacular views of the
Rocky Mountains and plenty of urban adventures for all
ages. Explore The Mile High City's farm-to-table cuisine,
local craft breweries and unique live music venues like the
famous Red Rocks Park & Amphitheatre. Visit the Denver Art
Museum with its famous American Indian art and Western
art collections, see the giant blue bear public art sculpture,
shop at Cherry Creek or get an authentic western shirt at the
iconic Rockmount Ranch Wear. Denver combines historic
Victorian brick buildings in Larimer Square and LoDo (Lower
Downtown) with the bold architecture of today, all within a
laid-back, walkable city center.
In new hotel news, two properties have opened this
year, both of which offer meeting and events space as well.
The Maven Hotel is a 172-room boutique hotel that opened
in March 2017, and it is part of the Dairy Block mixed-use
development near Denver Union Station, which features
60,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space. Innovative
room types include The Maven Bunk Rooms and 11 expansive
suites. The Maven is also home to the divisible 2,300-squarefoot Windsor event space that can accommodate groups of up
to 200. Anchoring downtown Denver's thriving Union Station
neighborhood, Hotel Indigo Denver opened in January 2017
and includes 180 guestrooms within the LEED-Certified
building. Other highlights include 1,188 square feet of meeting
and event space, a 24-hour fitness studio and easy access to
many of Denver's attractions. Hotel Indigo Denver also offers
a range of amenities for guests' furry friends, as
well as a warm welcome from the hotel's
resident dog ambassador, Barkly.
BOULDER
Boulder is enriched with
natural beauty, hip urban
culture and a vibrant love of
the outdoors. It is located
at the base of Colorado's
mountains-exactly
where the mountains
meet the plains.
Getting to Boulder
is a snap; it is only 45
minutes from Denver
International Airport
and 30 minutes from
downtown Denver.
This town of 103,000
residents feels much
smaller, as it is compact and
walker friendly.
Renting a bike is a fun way
to see the town and experience

Boulder as a local. The Boulder Creek Path meanders right
through historic downtown and follows along Boulder Creek.
Some of it is paved, some is dirt, and there are spots to stop,
get off your bike and enjoy the creek. In addition to this path,
Boulder has more than 150 miles of biking and hiking trails.
Attendees at your next event can tour Boulder on two wheels
with the help of a number of tour groups, including At Your
Pace Freestyle Cycling Adventures, Boulder Adventure
Travel, Boulder Sacred Rides or Electric Cruiser Bike Tours.
ASPEN
There's an old adage in Aspen that nearly every "local"
can relate to: "I came for the winter, but stayed for summer."
While the ski slopes of Aspen's four surrounding mountains
beckon winter-sports enthusiasts, it is spring, summer, and
autumn that compel many to fall in love with Aspen, Colorado.
An endless array of arts, culture, dining, and nightlife during
non-winter months give Aspen an urbane feel that belies its
small-town charm.
When you combine a year-round outdoor lifestyle accessed
from your hotel lobby or doorstep and a jam-packed cosmopolitan
cultural calendar with a bustling downtown atmosphere and
centrally located airport, it's no wonder why Aspen is a worldrenowned destination throughout the entire year.
If you're looking for a unique venue in Aspen, the Aspen
Historical Society's renovation of its 3,000-square-foot
archive building was completed this summer. The new facility
features a community gallery space for exhibitions,
educational programming and events, plus
increased and safeguarded storage for
the town's artifacts, photographs
and objects. A newly landscaped
courtyard also increases
indoor-outdoor space
available for events. The
Aspen Historical Society
has three additional
unique properties
available for special
events, including a
Victorian home, a turnof-the-century mining
museum and an 1880s
ghost town.
