Things To Do In Greeley


Select Local Merchants

  • Syntax Spirits Distillery
    Each batch of Syntax Spirits Distillery’s vodka, whisky, and rum is made by hand using stainless-and-copper fractionating stills, Colorado Weld County wheat or American Molasses, and Cache La Poudre River whitewater. The result of these curated elements are incredibly smooth, complex spirits versatile enough to be sipped or mixed. At the distillery, visitors are filled in on the process that brings these drinks to life and can taste the fruits of the facility’s labor. Along with its signature spirits, the distillery boasts housemade infusions that range from bourbon vanilla to citrus flavors. Guests can sample the different infusions as chilled shots or in a signature cocktail at the cocktail bar in the industrial-style tasting room where neon signs and antique light fixtures illuminate each sip. When guests aren’t mid-pinball game or sampling drinks at the 40-foot-long concrete bar, the staff leads complimentary tours of the distillery’s manufacturing area, where Laverne & Shirley imitations are prohibited.

  • Centennial Village Museum
    Greeley Museums bring history alive?sometimes quite literally. The best example is Centennial Village, a living, breathing town square from 100 years ago. Over seven acres of immaculately restored land, time-swept citizens go about their lives as they would have in the last century: they toil at the blacksmith, file grievances at the courthouse, and a lucky few put up their feet at grand homes. But though the seasonal city is the antique jewel in this historical tiara, it's hardly the only chance to learn about the past. The History Museum dips its toes into other eras, visiting the bicycle craze of the 1800s, the challenges of the homefront in the 1940s, and the grudge match between the town's namesake Congressman Horace Greeley and political cartoonist Thomas Nast. At the Colorado Model Railroad Museum, a 5,500-square-foot model railroad feels at home among 600 railroad artifacts and a full-size caboose. And the Meeker Home offers a look inside the lives of the Meeker family, who founded Greeley with a vision of a utopian future.

  • Bikram Yoga Greeley
    Great minds think alike, and this was definitely true for Kyle Baxter—a professional tree climber—and Bridget Baxter—an accomplished high-school and college cross-country and track runner. Each certified instructor owned or worked at a local Bikram studio, but it wasn’t until they met at a Bikram yoga convention in 2006 that they discovered each other. Now the married couple oversees two Bikram yoga locations, which offer classes for students of any level seven days a week. Each studio is kept at a toasty 105 degrees, and sessions are led by a certified Bikram instructor who guides patrons through muscle-building and stretching poses that promote healthy, lean bodies. A large towel, yoga mat, and water bottle are recommended for each class, so the studios offer rental towels and mats for those whose dog ate their yoga mat along with their homework.

  • Adventure Paragliding
    When soaring past the Rocky Mountains surrounding Glenwood Springs, trees seem to be the size of pinecones, streets look like pencil lines scrawled across the ground, and houses resemble Monopoly real estate. Yet the certified instructors at Adventure Paragliding assure first-timers that when they?re strapped in and soaring, a fear of heights seldom rears its head. That's because paragliding doesn?t involves the falling sensation of parachuting?pilots instead gently launch by jogging down a slight incline. When their feet leave the ground and the parachute-like sail carries them through the sky, they can turn and soar serenely, eventually landing softly. The instructors fight myths about the scariness of their sport with regularity. They maintain that manning a paraglider takes more precision than bravery or physical strength, and their introductory lessons aim to impart that precision to all ages so that they might feel free flight and witness the midair views of the Rocky Mountains. For prot?g?s in pursuit of loftier journeys, immersive certification programs cover more advanced techniques, such as ridge soaring and telling a snowcapped mountain apart from a giant sculpture of George Washington?s head.
