I got to visit Colorado for the first time on our family trip last week visiting my brother who lives in Denver.
We didn’t do much sight seeing while in Denver as we simply wanted to spend time with our families. My brother and his wife have two small kids and it was great for our kids to spend time with their little cousins.
We stayed at the Halcyon, a boutique hotel located downtown in the heart of Cherry Creek walking distance to chic boutiques, cafés and restaurants.
The hotel offers many cool amenities like a kitchen counter in the lobby where they serve free breakfast and drinks 24/7; a gear garage with bicycles for complimentary use; a rooftop pool and bar with beautiful views of the Mile High City and a French line of body products. Totally my kind of hotel!
One of my favorite thing to do when visiting a new city is to shop at local boutiques. With summer almost over, I got a head start on my fall shopping with a few transitional basics. Can’t wait to share these essentials with you!
After spending a few days in Denver, we drove to Colorado Springs and stayed in the Garden of the God valley at the Cheyenne Mountain Resort which has breathtaking views of the Rocky Mountains.
The resort offers so many activities for the family from hiking, swimming, tennis to a huge fitness center and golf course. There are many local parks nearby such as the Garden of the Gods, Seven Falls, the famous Cheyenne zoo and many trails to explore.
I felt so inspired and rejuvenated by the majestic beauty of the Colorado mountains. I’m more of a beach girl when it comes to summer vacationing, but this trip has definitely changed my mind about summer fun in the mountains!
What about you? Have you visited Colorado?
Enjoy the rest of your summer ! Hard to believe it’s almost over!
A bientôt ♥
