Winter Got You Down? Get Outside With These Fun Denver Activities!

Don’t let the icy idea of winter intimidate you into avoiding activities this season – winter is wildly fun in Denver! Though it sits at the foot of the mountains, Denver has incredibly mild winters. Sunny days, often-moderate temperatures, and quick-melting snow all make the winter months not only bearable, but enjoyable!

Whereas the Midwest suffers from brutal, bone-chilling winters with a constant barrage of snow, Denver has a majority of sunny days. The occasional heavy snowstorm will usually melt in just a few days, leaving the streets open for easy traffic and the parks open for perfect snowman-making weather! Only a few spells of frosty temperatures will descend, while other days are only pleasantly chilly – sometimes even balmy! Denver truly is one of the most comfortable places in America to experience a winter wonderland.

Look forward to plenty of great outdoor activities coming up this season, including ice skating, minigolf and sledding. Here are a few of our favorite winter activities in Denver:

Southwest Rink at Skyline Park
If you’ve never skated on ice before, this is an experience you don’t want to miss! The rink is free to skate on, and you can bring your own skates, or rent a pair there.

National Western Stock Show & Rodeo Parade
January 9, 2014, 12 p.m.
A parade with cowgirls, cowboys and Texas Longhorn cattle right in the heart of downtown Denver? Yes, it’s real and it’s the perfect opporunity to use the cowboy hat that you bought.

We’ll also be featuring plenty of indoor activities as well, including movies, laser tag, and trips to various museums. Activities are an extremely effective way to practice and enhance your language skills, as well as a wonderful way to socialize with people from a range of cultures. Bridge has been a hub for countless international friendships over the years, and we continue to delight in introducing students to new cultures, new ideas, and new friends.

    a lot of time both reading and posting comments.

    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

  4. Greetings from Florida! I’m bored to death at work so I decided to check out your site on my iphone during lunch break.
    I really like the information you provide here and can’t
    wait to take a look when I get home. I’m amazed at
    how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone .. I’m not
    even using WIFI, just 3G .. Anyways, superb site!

  5. You are so cool! I do not suppose I’ve read through something like that before.
    So great to find somebody with genuine thoughts on this issue.
    Seriously.. thank you for starting this up. This website is one
    thing that is needed on the internet, someone with
    some originality!

    stumbleupon every day. It will always be helpful to read through content from other

  8. Howdy just wanted to give you a brief heads up and let you know a few of the
    pictures aren’t loading properly. I’m not sure why but I think its a linking issue.
    I’ve tried it in two different browsers and both show the
    same outcome.

  9. Howdy would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style seems
    different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely
    unique. P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!
