Other day trips include Blackhawk and Central City casinos, Antiquing, and Microbrewery tours in Fort Collins, Loveland,Longmont and Boulder. 

Of course if there is time, a trip across the Continental Divide to Grand County is a must do adventure. The YMCA of the Rockies offers programs, and the series of lectures offered by the Park Service is always a treat.
