It is getting HOT outside. Many of our projects have been outside recently, and dealing with the heat is not a fun part of the job. That is why we like to wind down on the weekends with something fun to do that will cool us off and make great memories. If you are looking for some ideas to do this summer, then you came to the right place! Here is a list of some of our favorite local places as well as a few places that we have on our bucket list to try out!
SUP GJ – SUP stands for Stand up and Paddle. They are a local company that will rent you paddle boards to take out on our local water ways. For some added fun you can also sign up for one of their paddleboard yoga classes and/or a moonlight paddle. You can sign up for these fun events even if you have your own equipment to bring along. Don’t know how to paddle? They got you covered with that too! You can sign up for a class where they will teach you everything you need to know. Sounds fun, Right? They have two locations to make things easier on you. Check them out at Highline Lake and/or Las Colonias Park!
Palisade River Trips is another fun place where you can rent rafts and SUP boards. But the main feature that I love about this company is their scenic float trip down the Colorado River. It is a 2 hour trip that starts at Palisade and ends at Corn Lake.
Rapid Creek Cycles Want to stay on land this summer? We’ve got you covered there as well. Rapid Creek Cycles is a great place where you can rent bicycles. Ever wanted to tour a vineyard on a bicycle? Now you can!
Grand Valley Adventure Do you love riding dirt bikes or have you ever wanted to learn? Grand Valley Adventure is happy to rent you some dirt bikes and/or take you out on an adventure. Rentals also come with full gear, so you will be all ready for a fun adventure! They are also happy to teach you how to ride if you are a beginner. Another really cool thing about Grand Valley Adventure is they will deliver the dirt bikes to you and even meet you at the trail with them!
