How often do you play tourist in your own town? I recently had a chance to head into Golden (yeah, the town west of Denver that is where Coors is brewed). There is so much more in and around town than you might think just driving by (or maybe you never drive by). Great trails, a fun park, history galore (take a tour!), cute shops, awesome restaurants (might I suggest the AWESOME Golden Mill). It is worthy of a fun night out or a great Saturday with your family.
Free Days. Free days are back at some of the best museums in town. Check our list and mark your calendar. This week plan to visit the Clyfford Still Museum on the 19th or the Museum of Nature and Science on May 23rd for Space Day!
Kids Bowl Free. Bowling is back! And your kids can bowl two free games every day all summer long. It is a safe, secure and fun way to get inside where it is air-conditioned this summer when it’s not raining every day. Visit KidsBowlFree.com to sign your kids up and find lanes near you.
Kids Skate Free. Visit KidsSkateFree.com. Find a rink near you and click on their sign-up page for free skating all summer long! They will send you the passes weekly – you get two free passes per week per child. (The passes are only good that week but they will send you new ones every week).
Secure Vail Resorts Passes Now. It is arguably the best ski deal in Colorado for adults AND kids…and it runs out on Memorial Day. May 31, 2021, will be the last day you can lock in your Vail Resorts’ Epic Pass purchase with a $49 down payment, with the remaining balance not due until September at 20% off. And, through Memorial Day, the purchase of an Epic Pass will come with the bonus of 10 “Buddy tickets,” good for significantly discounted lift tickets for family and friends.
Taco Bell Rockies Promotion. About once a week, my family and I head over to a Taco Bell to take advantage of the tacos promotion. Whenever the Rockies score seven or more runs (win or lose), the next day between 4 p.m. and 6 p.m. you can get 4 tacos for just $2. You can also multiply that (get 8 tacos for $4).
Free Coffee. Get a free bag of Amora coffee plus try their new Blueberry Blend also for free at Amora Coffee. It does cost just $1 for shipping and handling.

Free Fishing Weekend. Now is a great time to try fishing in Colorado! The fish are starting to bite at waters all around the state. To give everyone an opportunity to get out and get some hits, Colorado Parks and Wildlife is inviting resident and nonresident anglers of all ages to participate in its annual Free Fishing Weekend on June 5 to 6. The free fishing weekend is a great way to get outside with family and friends and take advantage of Colorado’s extensive opportunities to fish for a myriad of cold and warm water fish species.
