Here are some Colorado must-do’s close to Denver. Relax in some Hot Springs How would you like to soak in natural hot springs in an underground cave? Indian Springs is just an hour west of Denver.

With so many professional athletes, and everyday gym goers, coming out of the green closet, it’s making it very clear to the public that cannabis consumers are not lazy. Having so many people stand up, to end the age old stereotype of cannabis making you lazy and stupid, people from all walks of life now have a distinguished flag to rally behind.

Ophelia's at the Airedale Building

You’ve probably driven or walked past it numerous times, admired the building, heard people raving about the delicious food and great shows they’ve seen there and maybe have even frequented the unique underground bar yourself — I’m talking about that mysterious, glamours and somewhat nostalgic looking building on 20th St, right in between Larimer St and Lawrence St, that houses Ophelia’s Electric Soapbox.
