What To Do In Denver Over the 4th of July Weekend!

A lot of you wanted ideas of things to do in Denver, for the 4th of July weekend. On instagram stories, I directed you to look for roundups from 303 Magazine, but I just couldn’t resist compiling a list of some cool things to do in Denver, over the 4th of July weekend. For those of you that wanted ideas in addition to fireworks and events, find them below!

Please double check any business you are thinking about going to, in case they have holiday hours. As always, it means so much when you share on social!  xo Kayla

Truck Stop Rally – Truck Stop Rally Facebook

1. The FREE 4th of July Party EVERYONE iIs Going To – Truck Stop Rally is put on by the best party and event planners in Denver – Two Parts! They put on Collaboration Fest, The Big Eat, Denver Deluxe, and so much more, including the Denver Passport (everyone’s resource for buy 1, get 1 drinks around the city). Their parties are always filled with boozy-craft cocktails and music!

Truck Stop rally is the going to be the ULTIMATE block party, filled with your fave food trucks, friends, innovative cocktails and bands! Hope to see you there, at Stanley Marketplace. The best part:  it’s free, grab all the info, here.

2. Fireworks and Other Things To Do:  I love 303 Magazine’s roundups of things to do because it’s so organized, comprehensive and hat tip for not having to deal with a ton of pop-ups. Click here, for not only unique things to do, but fire works, as well.

3. I Really Want To SUP or Paddle board Close to Denver –  I vote for Evergreen but 303 Magazine put together this great list of other places to get your paddle board or SUP fix!

Though Broadway Market is closed on the 4th, they are ready for weekend Happy Hour the rest of the weekend.

4. Places to Eat and Drink:  A lot of my fave places are taking a much needed break over the Denver 4th of July weekend. Good thing Eater put together this list of places that will be open. Don’t see your favorite spot? Most restaurants update their instagrams to let you know they are closed, or have limited hours.

5. Just Want to Splash Around in the Water – While I love this article about the best pools and water parks in Denver, it is a bit outdated, please make sure you double check hours and pricing before you go! And while this is a great write up about the best places to tube in Colorado, with the rapid snow melt, please check ahead and be careful!

6. But I Really Want to Be Outside in Nature – I got you covered.  How about a hike to see wildflowers?  Or hikes to see waterfalls? Here are hikes near Denver. Bring your fur friend on these pup friendly hikes. I know many of you are interested in hiking up to the 15ft wooden art troll, in Breckenridge, now that it’s been put back together. Though the temps are heating up, it’s cool at night – how about a stay at a hot spring? Check those out here.

8. What Would Be Really Cool is To Sit Out on A RoofTop or Patio in the City –  I love Improper City (patio, dog friendly), Ratio Beerworks (patio, dog friendly), Ironton Distillery (a beautiful patio with shade and gardens), Blue Moon Brewery, 54-Thirty (a gorgeous rooftop), Linger (rooftop), El Five (rooftop), Joyride Brewing (dogs allowed in the brewery but not on their new rooftop), Postino (patio and $5 wine til 5pm) and Infinite Monkey (patio, dog friendly).

Hope these give you some great ideas of how to spend the fourth with the ones you love!  xo Kayla
