When Denver Westword critic Jason Sheehan visited Cracovia Restaurant and Bar, his summation of the meal ended up sounding less like a restaurant review and more like an Alice in Wonderland–style memoir dripping with passion and faux nostalgia. At one point, he recalled a desire to tackle a waiter who had walked by with a plate of cabbage rolls, so that he could "grab the golabki with [his] teeth and drink the tomato-mushroom gravy straight from the tureen." Later in the meal, he and his wife felt so connected to the food, they almost felt Polish themselves: "If our mothers had been Polish … this would've been what we ate growing up, " Jason said, "This tastes like home cooking in the best possible way, tastes of time and care and experience and love."

Love is probably the key word here: it's not surprising that Jason and his wife were so enamored with their meal, considering Cracovia is a labor of love for husband-wife team Lester and Marie Rodzen. They named the restaurant after a Krakow hotel where they honeymooned more than a quarter-century ago, and they pour this affection for their home country into each of the from-scratch Polish dishes they create. The aforementioned golabki—cabbage rolls stuffed with pork and rice—is one of the Rodzens' signature dishes, as are the homemade kielbasa and pierogi stuffed with meat, cabbage, cheese, or blueberries, all purchased at local farmers markets. In the spirit of its romantic inspiration, Cracovia is a perfect date-night restaurant—every Friday and Saturday night, live singers croon as couples make their way to the dining room's dance floor or three-legged racing area.

Owned by a 15-year home-brew veteran with more than 9,000 beer recipes, Do Your Brew educates burgeoning malt mavens on all the basics of concocting brews during a hands-on introductory brewing class. Aspiring brewmasters can select from twelve brew kits, such as the Bitter Bob Bitters, a deep and big-bodied pale ale with a quick-brewing process and a satisfying result, or the Dark Roast Porter, a dark-coffee brew with rich, spicy hops and a smooth finish. Other selections include the Atbier, Black Canyon Stout, Bronco Amber Ale, Enlightened Black Ale, Gold Coast Pale Ale, Irish Red Ale, Kolsch, Nut Brown Ale, California Common Beer, and Sundown Wheat. In addition to their newly gleaned imbibing insight, beer believers can take home five gallons of beer from the resulting handcrafted batch, ideal for impressing family members or German dignitaries that randomly appear in one’s basement. Aspiring barley pop experimenters also get 10% off all home-brewing supplies and kits at Do Your Brew if they want to continue crafting hop concoctions.

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.

Flesh-eating zombies, cannibalistic clowns, nightmarish ghouls, and haunting ghosts prowl The Frightmare Compound, ready to snatch those foolish enough to venture through its fear-infested grounds. Known as one of Colorado's oldest and largest haunted attractions, the compound houses two terrifying attractions on more than 100,000 square feet of swampland. Horrors unseen wait for new victims inside the first compound, where a haunted barn filled with terrors is the least of visitors' worries. The second attraction, the House of Darkness, was the site of a terrible massacre and lay abandoned for some time until the Frightmare staff brought it to their site. Soon after, the ghosts of those slain began roaming its halls, and clowns with a taste for human flesh found their way inside its corridors.

According to a 2013 article in the New Yorker, Colorado is No. 3 in the nation in terms of number of craft breweries (it has 151 altogether). According to that same article, the number of craft breweries continues to grow every year in almost every state. It seems like people can't get enough of the inventive craft beer flavors made by beer lovers from breweries such as Broomfield's Big Choice Brewing.

Owners Nathaniel Miller and Tyler Ruse pour pints and growlers of their 10,000 Summers Saison, which is brewed with Madhava wildflower honey, or their #42 Poblano Stout, which contains actual poblano peppers. To make the beer tastings more of an experience, Big Choice offers in-house movie nights and trivia nights.
