This summer, we had many out-of-staters move to Colorado! While people know Colorado for winter skiing and summer hiking, Fall is a beautiful time of year. Leaves are changing, there’s a chill in the air perfect for outdoor dining, and everything is pumpkin flavored.
For those new to Colorado, we’ve outlined some of our favorite things to do in our state in the Fall. Come join us!
Especially in the time of COVID, more and more restaurants are providing the option of dining al fresco. Temperatures are in the 60s and 70s in the Fall, and the sky is bright and sunny. You really can’t beat an afternoon with a delicious beverage outside.
- Larimer Square is in the heart of Downtown, and has 6 brand new restaurants opening this season. It’s a lovely spot to wander with Colorado flags and lights decorating the street.
- Rooftop patios are open and rocking this season – including at new restaurants like Dimestore Deli Bar in LoHi, classics like Del Frisco’s Grille in Cherry Creek, and Downtown’s Whiskey Tango Foxtrot.
Leaf Peeping in the Fall
One thing everyone in Colorado looks forward to in the Fall is the leaves changing color. The mountains transform from bright green to gold, yellow, and red! You don’t have to go far either to see it.
- Kenosha Pass is famous for their paths through the gorgeous aspen trees, but gets crowded this time of year.
- You can also head up North on Colorado State Highway 14 to the top of Cameron Pass to get some rainbow leaf photos.
Be sure to get out there before the seasons change!
