Let’s Roam. A couple weeks ago, I got to participate in a Let’s Roam scavenger hunt. It is an app based hunt that lets you discover all kinds of great places in Denver and restaurants afterward (with the membership on the app you can download specials at different restaurants). It is great fun for the whole family to discover together (and you’re not locked in a room together). Give it a try and here’s a discount code you can use to make it cheaper!
