    Waterton Canyon Trail

    by OlenaKyiv Written Sep 4, 2005

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Waterton Canyon

    Waterton Canyon is very beautiful place for biking. The path lies in canyon along the mountain creek. You will enjoy the views of mountains and the beauty of nature. The path is good for beginner, especially for families, because the road is wide, the slopes are not high. Plus you will see a lot of families there with children on bykes with their parents. But it shouldn't stop the advanced bykers, because the path ends with long uphill road. I did only a half of it, believe me, it was tough

    The path also is good for hiking, but pay an attention that path is not a concrete.

    Equipment: You may take fishing poles. I saw many fishermen over there with their poles. They get to the creek on bikes, so you migh do both things for pleasure - biking and fishing

    Colorado Rockies Baseball game

    by Packerman Written Jul 14, 2003
    Game ticket & parking

    Watching a game at Coors Stadium is an excellent treat, especially if you are a baseball fan. You will probably see a few baseballs leave the stadium before it is all said and done. I saw 6 leave the field on July 10, 2003 (3 by the Rockies and 3 by the Giants, one of which was struck by Barry Bonds). The stadium is very pleasing to the eye, there are mountains in the background and in the stadium itself there is a nice little waterfall and some other rock landscaping. Tickets cost as little as $4 in the Rock Pile, or up to almost $50. I bought mine for $20 and was in the upper level right behind home plate. Abe, Beau, Ken, and I had a great time!

    Equipment: A baseball glove to catch a foul ball or a homer!

    Cycling along Platte River

    by frantz Written Sep 25, 2003

    If you're like me and come from a country where most people have a bicycle or you just like cycling than you can make a lovely trip along the Platte River.
    There is a good bicycle path that goes on for i don't know how long, i spend a great day cycling along there.
    Found out at the Tourist infomation (16th street mall) where you can rent bicycles, er if you're lucky like me borrow one from a friend.
    I think that at the Tourist information you can get a map as well.
    You will enjoy a good dat out.

    Equipment: Bring along some nice food abd if you,re not shure what to wear ask where ever you rent or borrow a bicycle from what to bring.
    And off course never leave home without a repair kit in case you get a puncture.

    Seeing a Rockies game is fantastic! The Rocky Mountain Range is in the background, downtown is right there, the field is gorgeous, and you are bound to see a few homers! I got the chance to see 6 leave the field! Barry Bonds hit one of them. I saw the game with my friends, Abe, Beau, & Ken.

    Incredible College Football Setting

    by bg408 Updated Mar 2, 2004
    On the way to the game - yeee braaaa!

    If you are lucky enough to see a Colorado Football game in Boulder - do it. The backdrop with the Flatirons and the campus is amazing. Folsom Field is a really intimate stadium and tickets are not hard to find. Try the Harvest House before and after the game. Go Buffs!

    Equipment: It is usually really nice in the fall in Boulder, but the weather can change quickly. Dress in layers.

    Choppers Sports Grill

    by ratherton Written May 24, 2004

    One for the armchair fans. We spent a few hours in here one afternoon with nothing else better to do (honestly, the weather was awful).

    It was a nice enough setting with plenty of TVs showing different Ice Hockey Play-off matches.

    All the normal US food and beers were available.

    Coors Field

    Coors Field

    This is the home of the Colorado Rockies, apparently, they are a baseball team.

    I never went to a game but the stadium looked pretty good (from the outside) and there were several bars in close proximatey which is never a bad thing.

    Ride the Rockies

    by JohnnoBSCW Updated Jun 6, 2005

    http://www.bicycletourcolorado.com/ - this is the ride I want to do here. I need to get in shape for this, but it would be an awesome experience and a great achievement. This seems to be a smaller version of the Ride the Rockies ride about a month earlier .... need to start training for 2006!

    Although we didnt see any games,(we missed the LAKERS VS NUGGETS) We did check out the Invesco field, Pepsi Center, and the Coors Field. These are all pretty close to each other. Maybe next time i can catch a game.

    COORS FIELD AND THE COLORADO ROCKIES

    THE LUNDEEN SCULPTURE OUTSIDE THE STADIUM

    MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL, NATIONAL LEAGUE STYLE. Coors Field seats 50,000 for home games. If you sit in the row of purple seats you are exactly one mile above the oceans. The stadium has its own brewpub.

    Equipment: Bring sunglasses, that Colorado sun is really bright. Also sunblock and a cap for shade. Lots of ultraviolet rays up here, you know.

    This is a picture of a Cubs and Rockies game where Sammy Sosa hit three homeruns in four at bats, a personal record. It was so exciting.
