Nestled near the foot of the Front Range mountains about 30 minutes from Denver and Boulder, Hilltop Inn pampers patrons with homey confines and ample amenities. After checking in, guests are greeted in their king mini suite by a half dozen chocolate-covered strawberries, a complimentary snack bar, and breathtaking mountain views. A romantic gas fireplace keeps toes toasty, and a satellite-enabled, 27-inch flat-screen TV inspires epic, popcorn-fueled channel-surfing competitions. Guests can stop by The Wildflowers Tea Room & Restaurant and use their $10 gift card toward a late-afternoon tea, an english bread pudding, or something heartier, such as corned beef cooked in Guinness and whiskey. With a refrigerator, microwave, and kitchen sink in their room, boarders can pack it in for the night and take advantage of the WiFi connection to perform magic shows via video chat to enraptured family and friends. After all sheep are counted and the violet hue of the sun paints the eastern sky, lodgers start the day with a full-size breakfast before heading off into the mountains for a bout of exuberant yodeling.
Mile High Spirits doesn't deal in half measures. The distillery uses an all-glass still to craft a dazzling range of spirits—including rum, gin, bourbon, whiskey, and vodka—from proprietary recipes and high-quality ingredients, serving up all its liquor straight up or in creative cocktails. Patrons can enjoy the housemade liquors and a selection of private-label beverages in a comfortable lounge.

Urban Dare Adventure Race is a fast-paced competition that challenges two-person teams to decipher clues, navigate the city, and perform playful stunts. A dozen trivia-based clues lead contestants to checkpoints all over Los Angeles, where they must use a camera to document their presence and, in some cases, the completion of challenges, such as scaling a wall or shooting hoops. In addition to running and walking, contestants may use public transportation to move from checkpoint to checkpoint, though taxis, cars, and bikes are off-limits. Races generally last less than four hours, and the winning team receives free entry in the Super Dare, a cruise-based take on the Urban Dare concept that features a $5,000 grand prize. Proceeds from the race are used to help battle breast cancer.
Smokin Joes BBQ heaps plates of beef brisket, St. Louis-style ribs, pulled pork and other menu items slathered in sauce that’s at once sweet, tangy, tart, and spicy. Other sauces include the spicy barbecue, sweet and tangy mustard sauce, and the Carolina sauce, which blends vinegar, brown sugar, and a hint of cayenne pepper ideal for whole-hog cooking. Signature milkshakes cool off the tongue with inventively sweet flavors, such as the birthday cake shake with Funfetti cake mix, milk, and vanilla ice cream. Smokin Joes can also cater for events such as company picnics, class reunions, and weddings, especially weddings where they toast with barbecue sauce instead of champagne.
Whiskey Bar embodies its name by hosting a whiskey list that holds more than 180 varieties, accompanied by local microbrews and high-definition entertainment. The classic Tennessee-born Jack Daniels ($5) shares space with glasses of Woodford Reserve bourbon ($5) and a rich 15-year Pappy Van Winkle bourbon ($9) to intrigue sippers' palates. A consistently rotating $3 whiskey of the day encourages imbibers to dip into Whiskey Bar's vast selection and glean knowledge to counter slanderous statements against whiskey's honor. Or celebrate Colorado's microbrewers with a different $3 local draft beer daily—accompanying nine other sudsy pours on tap—and bottles for $4.50.
