Things to do in Denver when you're Married

My partner and I will be taking advantage of Colorado's unique self-solemnizing law, which allows couples to marry themselves (no city official or pastor or even witnesses required.) That means we can create a meaningful marriage ceremony that appeals to us and only us. Thing is, we're from the midwest and need some ideas of great places to wed in Denver. No traditional wedding spots needed. We like hiking and legal marijuana smoking. Difficulty level: we want to do outdoorsy things in winter or early spring. We also enjoy arts and culture events or sites. We need your amazing ideas please. [more inside]

Afternoon in Denver with a car

I'm arriving at Denver airport just after 11 am on a Saturday, hiring a car at the airport and then planning to stay in Grand Lake for a few days after that. Is it worth spending the Saturday afternoon checking out Denver rather than heading straight for Grand Lake? If so, how should I do this? [more inside]

Renting a car for southern CO road trip - do I want an SUV?

I'm planning on flying into Denver and doing a solo roadtrip for a few days in southern Colorado, but I'm pretty unfamiliar with the territory. Should I get an SUV, or is that unnecessary -- especially given that I've never really driven one? (Itinerary suggestions welcome!) [more inside]

Indulgent Getaway near Denver in May

A girlfriend and I are meeting up with our awesome friend in Denver the first weekend in May (1-4). She's recently moved there so isn't super familiar with the area, and only has one bedroom-so we'd love to find someplace relatively close where we can relax and indulge-hotel or VRBO or ? Oh, and must allow her small, well-behaved dog. [more inside]

Buddy trip things to do - Georgia/Alabama/Tennessee

I am meeting up for a weekend with some guys from college (all in our 30s) and looking for a good spot to meet up/things to do. We all live in the southeast and it would be good to find something in between Atlanta, Birmingham and Chattanooga. Obviously we could stay in the one of those cities and there would be a lot to do, but I am curious if there are some hidden gems or fun places outside of the cities. Thanks in advance!

Keystone → UC Denver morning of 3 April

I need to go from Keystone to the University of Colorado Denver Anschutz Medical Campus the morning of 3 April 2015. So far, my best option seems to be to take an early morning Colorado Mountain Express shuttle to Denver International Airport, and then take a taxi to UC Denver. The first CME shuttle that goes directly downtown doesn't arrive until 12:30 p.m. I don't want to rent a car. Are there better options?

Alternative comic shops in Denver?

We will be traveling to Denver later this month and would really like to check out some alternative comic shops, if there are any! A Google search turns up general comic shops, but results on alt comic, zine-y shops are few. Any tips on some cool places would be great! Thinking along the lines of Oily comics, etc.

Will good Fall color extend into October in Telluride, CO

My wife and I had to move our road trip to the Telluride area back a couple of weeks to the first week of October. I'm worried that we will be greeted with bare aspen trees! I know that the timing of peak color can change from year to year, so I realize that any advice is just a best guess. So, are we in luck? Thanks!

Where to stash a car for a couple of weeks near downtown Denver?

We are on a roadtrip in Colorado and want to stay in downtown Denver for 1-2 weeks. We don't envision needing our car during our stay and wish to avoid the expensive parking options in downtown. Is there a good place to stash our car in the Denver area that is safe and inexpensive ($7/day or less) and readily accessible from downtown by public transportation? Any specific parking lot recommendations are welcome.
