Even though Rocky Mountain Chocolate Factory has locations throughout the world, it still maintains the small-town candy-store feel envisioned by its creator and CEO, Frank Crail. Crail founded the original location in his adopted hometown of Durango, Colorado, filling the sweet-smelling space with homey accents, such as candy-making demonstrations and games of Pin the Tail on the Chocolatier. Behind the counter, staffers roll fresh granny smith apples in dense caramel and mold lumps of rich fudge on old-style marble slabs. Other fresh confections include mint bark, chocolate-dipped pretzels, and boxed chocolates.

For 35 years, the seasoned seamsters at Homestead Needle Arts have sparked and stoked artistic fervor among stitchers of all stripes with a suite of needlework classes and supplies. The beginners' patterned-square class gathers five to six needlework neophytes around an oaken table for two hours of camaraderie, searching through haystacks, and sampler fabrication. Fuel up for finger feats with complimentary mugs of tea as teachers dispense kits stuffed with multihued thread, pre-marked canvas, and learning materials, before delving into the basics of threading and stitch-chart syntax. By the end of each symposium, students will gain a hands-on mastery of thread parking, stripping, and stitch witchery through six fundamental sutures, including the Straight Gobelin, Hungarian Diamond, and Slanted Scotch. Proud graduates can escort bedecked textiles home or pack them off for finishing (not included), then pore over Homestead Needle Arts’ thousands of threads, notions, and books, sign up for the weekly newsletter, and swap shoptalk with the resident golden retriever. Plan to call ahead for class scheduling and bring a pair of needlepoint scissors.
At Infinity Health Care Center, Steven Otte and his staff administer massages that are carefully tailored to each client's unique aches and pains. Otte specializes in myofascial release, a modality focused on the body's network of connective tissue, or fascia. The technique can help restore lost range of motion by releasing any stiffness caused by inflammation, injury, or accidentally bathing in hairspray. Other massage styles range from intense deep tissue massage to reflexology, which can alleviate back pain while strengthening immune systems.
