Although Colorado is famous for our snowy winters, one of the best times of year to live in our state in the summer. Here in Northern Colorado, you’ll never be at a loss for fun and exciting leisure activities during the hottest months of the year. Even if the temperatures rise to the mid -nineties, you don’t have to suffer through the stifling humidity found on the East Coast. Our comfortable summers also pale in comparison to the horrendous heat found in the deserts of Arizona, California, or New Mexico. With an abundance of lovely sunshine, the last thing you want to be doing in your spare time is mowing the lawn. If you hired Elevated Lawns & Landscape to mow your lawn, here are some fun activities you could be doing instead:
Dining Al Fresco
Instead of mowing your lawn, why not meet up with your favorite friends at one of the many restaurant patios of Fort Collins or Loveland. Old Town in Fort Collins features an abundance of restaurants and bars with patios perfect for grabbing a bite and some delicious cocktails. You could even head up to the rooftop patio of Illegal Pete’s for a truly lovely view, complete with a water cooling system.
Hit A Brewery
Fort Collins is a craft beer mecca, with a variety of breweries scattered throughout the town. Nothing is quite as refreshing as drinking an ice cold beer on a hot day. Breweries are the perfect establishments for gathering with the locals and making new friends. Also, many of these delightful establishments offer outdoor seating for a truly enjoyable experience.
Ride The Local Bike Paths
Fort Collins, Loveland, and the surrounding areas include a variety of bike paths to enjoy on a balmy summer day. If pushing your lungs to the max during extreme mountain biking sessions isn’t for you, then simply enjoy a leisurely ride on a paved path. For a little extra fun, you could ride your bike to your favorite brewery. You’ll enjoy your ride and burn off your beer calories, so it’s a win-win situation.
Stand Up Paddleboarding
Spending time in the cool water of the Horsetooth Reservoir by Fort Collins is the perfect way to cool off on the hottest days. Here you can rent a stand up paddleboard for an hour or two and paddle around at your leisure. Remember to wear your sunscreen! The sun rays can really scorch you at higher elevations.
The Poudre Canyon outside of Fort Collins offers many beautiful hiking trails where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life. You could even venture out even further because Colorado offers an abundance of the most scenic and amazing hikes in the country.
