If you pay any attention to the news right now, then you probably know that Colorado is one of the states that has made recreational marijuana legal. This makes people want to take day trips to Colorado all the time, and understandably so. However, most people simply head towards the largest city without knowing anything about it.
Denver is the largest city in Colorado, just like most people presume. Being so large, it’s also quite crowded. That said, there’s a little over 600K people in the city and country proper. This isn’t prohibitively crowded, so you won’t feel overwhelmed.
But if you’re the kind of person who enjoys having a lot of different things to see and do, then Denver is a great place to be. This is because the Denver-Aurora-Lakewood, CO Metropolitan Statistical Area has over 2M people! This means that you’re able to find just about anything you want to do as long as you’re willing to look in the metro area.
While recreational marijuana is legal, there are still some questions about how to allow citizens to engage in that right. Meanwhile, there are still plenty of bars and nightclubs, and it’s still entirely legal to buy a bottle of wine and enjoy a view of the Rocky Mountains from a hotel balcony.
And of course, there are all the traditional reasons people come to Colorado. Mountain climbing, white water rafting, the list goes on.
The point is, Denver Colorado is an amazing place to take a trip. If you’re hoping for a vacation, it should absolutely be on the list of places to go. But if the only reason you’re going to Colorado is recreational marijuana, you may want to take a few moments and add a few things to that list.
After all, Denver has a lot of things to add!
