Peaches are in season! I love the great Palisade peaches that are almost everywhere this time of year. There is just something that is so totally Colorado Summer that says a quick trip to the mountains for a box of the best peaches you’ve ever eaten…but then again a peach of a deal is pretty satisfying as well.

 Denver Summer Activity Guide. Amber published our annual 2020 Denver Summer Activity Guide with 150+ activities! Most of the free days aren’t happening (thanks COVID) but there are some super fun things on this list – so be sure to bookmark this awesome resource.

National Ice Cream Month. Ice Cream is honestly my favorite summer treat. Last summer I did an ice cream tour looking for the best ice cream in town. This summer – we’ve turned to the Milkshakes!!! That is why I’m super excited to go try the Cherry Cricket as they are launching Milkshake Mondays! Kids get free milkshakes all day on Mondays and the big kids (21+) can get boozy shakes for just $5!!

Free Virtual Summer Camp. Camp Tonsafun” is a free virtual camp hosted by counselors from the NBCUniversal family and others with activities for families to enjoy at home.

The cost will decrease by $250 per family if there are 2 or more families on a trip. All food and equipment will be provided.   

 Sam’s Club Membership. I often go back and forth, is Costco better or Sam’s Club? Maybe Sam’s Club is for a deal hunter – right now they are offering a promotion, when you purchase a membership for $45 you get a Sam’s Club Gift cards valued at $45 ($25 instantly, $20 when you spend $20 + a free pizza). So basically, you get the membership for FREE and they’re throwing the pizza party to celebrate!
