Colorado is one of the most beautiful places in the world, this category covers all things Colorado adventure.

LoHi is short for the "Lower Highlands" neighborhood located just west of the central downtown area. Technically speaking, it's the neighborhood that is sandwiched between LoDo and the Highlands, or for those who are more familiar with the streets of Denver, the area that extends south of Platte Street, across I-25 and blends into 32nd Street. 

 

LoHi has quickly become your Denver destination for some of the best restaurants and bars in the city. The overall vibe is more San Francisco than Denver, and the area's hills certainly add to that feel. Those hills also lend to some of the best views of the Downtown area you will find anywhere.

When you think of great wines, you think of California, France, Italy, Spain, and Colorado. Colorado? Indeed! We may not have the best Cabernets or Pinot Noirs, but we do have some lesser-known varietals that will rival the best in the world. Colorado Cabernet Franc is floral and herbaceous to the nose and loaded with notes of dark ripe plum with a toasty oak finish (typically found in the Loire of France), Colorado Merlot is wildly unique, the skins develop an intriguing array of spice from being at high altitude, and Teroldego (an Italian red variety) has a superb deep black cherry note.  A few other grapes to keep an eye out for include Syrah, Petit Verdot, Bordeaux blends, Rieslings and Gewurztraminer.

Fall doesn't technically begin until September 22nd, but the leaves will start turning in Colorado well before then. For many Coloradans, Fall is a special time of year. And the first sign of Fall is always that wave of colors along the Colorado Mountainsides. 

As the air gets crisper and the pumpkin spice lattes start frothing - it's time to start thinking about some of the best leaf-peeping spots in the state.

When do Leaf Colors start to Change?

Starting in mid-September, expect to see Aspens turning gold at elevations from 8,000 to 10,00 ft above sea level.

Typically Northern Colorado peaks first, and a wave of color moves South through the state. However, keep in mind that moisture levels significantly affect when leaf colors start to…
