The Cherry Cricket on Blake Street is our favorite place! You must have a burger and fries! -Sue Perrault

The new Ester's in Park Hill is my go to spot! -Abby Matson

The parade is meant as a protest of THE GAME THAT MUST NOT BE MENTIONED. -Dave Christie

It's not too early to think about reserving campsites in Colorado’s state parks and wildlife areas!

At the first of the year, Colorado State Parks converted to a “reservation-only” system for campsites at 20 state parks. The program was tested successfully at five state parks last July (Cheyenne Mountain, Eleven Mile, Staunton, St. Vrain and Trinidad Lake) and is being expanded this year.

Campsites can be reserved six months in advance. That means you can assume sites in your favorite state parks for July 4th are already being reserved. And if they’re not, consider this a friendly suggestion to beat the crowd and lock in now.

Sixteen parks were added to the reservation-only program on Jan. 1. They are the Arkansas Headwaters Recreation

We Love Free Days!

On a weekly basis, organizations such as Hudson Gardens (6115 S. Santa Fe Drive in Littleton) offer free daily entry for those whose idea of a good time includes picnics, nature walks and birdwatching. And new this year, the Golden History Museum & Park is offering free admission throughout its 80th anniversary (all of 2019) thanks to a private donor.

For art lovers, the Arvada Center Galleries (6901 Wadsworth Blvd.) has offered free admission seven days a week since opening in 1976, while every day at downtown Denver’s prestigious Clyfford Still Museum (1250 Bannock St.) is still free for attendees 17 and under. The Museum of Outdoor Arts will also offer free days the first Tuesdays of February, March and April.

A First-Timer’s Guide to the National Western Stock Show

Giddy up and go to the 113th annual event, taking place in Denver January 12-27.

Dust off that cowboy hat and the pair of boots that have been languishing in your closet: The 113th National Western Stock Show is in town. If you’ve never been one of the 650,000 annual attendees at this grand event, now is the time to dive in. Didn’t grow up on a ranch? No worries!

1. Visit during a weekday (or get an early start).

Weekend days are undoubtedly the busiest. If possible, head to the National Western Complex on a weekday, when you can share the sights, sounds and, yes, smells with far fewer people. If you’d rather brave the weekend crowds, try to be at the doors when they open at 9

Over the past 30+ years, the Denver Digs Trees program has provided more than 51,000 trees to Denver residents, helping to enhance quality of life in our city.

Trees beautify our neighborhoods, enhance property values, lower utility costs, improve air and water quality, and much more! Important Info:

For each tree you request, you MUST identify whether it is a 'Street Tree' or a "Yard Tree.' You may apply for 'Street Trees, 'Yard Trees,' or both!

    'Street Trees' are for planting along the street (in the public right-of-way) These trees may be planted either in the 'tree lawn' (area between the sidewalk and the curb) or, in the absence of a tree lawn, at a distance within 10 feet of the curb. In…

Denver wants to become a certified Community Wildlife Habitat, which basically means a lot of gardens

Denver hopes to be certified by the end of 2019, joining 116 other cities and towns across the country, including big ones like Houston and Baltimore. Denver would be the largest Community Wildlife Habitat in the West.

To get there, Denver will need to rack up 750 points. The minimum point total is determined by population.

Here’s what you can do:

To get your backyard (or balcony) habitat certified by the National Wildlife Federation, you’ll need to meet requirements in five categories. There are various ways to do it:

  • Food. This can include things like berries, nectar and bird feeders. Your habitat needs three of the 13 options.

Denver got a new transportation disruptor on Thursday. No, not more scooters — this time, it’s Getaround, a decentralized car-sharing system based in the Bay Area that allows you to rent your car out to perfect strangers or, inversely, rent a perfect stranger’s wheels for the day.

Here’s how it works: I, a car owner, register my – let’s say – Subaru with a snowboard rack with the app. Part of this process involves naming your car. We’ll call mine “Steve.” It’s free to list Steve for the first 30 days.

Getaround will come by and take photos of Steve and install hardware that tracks his whereabouts with GPS and allows me to lock the car remotely. Their system can even remotely lock Steve’s engine if necessary.

I get to set the times when Steve

Colorado Bucket List: Cut down your own holiday tree.

It's a wholesome, very Colorado activity worth making a family tradition: throwing the kids, the dog and a handsaw into the back of the ol' Subaru and cutting your own Christmas tree.

OK. The Subaru isn't mandatory. But the saw certainly is. 

And you can do it for just $20 at the Arapahoe, Roosevelt, Pike and San Isabel National Forests -- all within a few hours' drive of Denver. It does, however, take a little bit of planning before you head out. 

What kind of trees are available? 

Depending on where you go, expect to find Douglas fir, Lodgepole pine, Ponderosa pine, Engelmann spruce and Limber pine. 

Is this good for the forest?

Yes, as a matter of fact, it is. Unless forests

What to do in Denver When It's Cold outside

This weekend's cold snap has us getting in the holiday mood, so we thought we would round up some fun winter activities that will start soon in the Denver Area. Some of them require tickets and sell out fairly quickly.

Denver Rink at Skyline Park

It’s that time of year again — the downtown Denver Rink at Skyline Park is set to reopen at 10 a.m. Nov. 20.

According to Denverite, This is the ninth season for this Denver tradition — your annual opportunity to laugh at your loved ones as they fall down. That’s what the holiday season is all about — a good fall.

Skating at the park is free. Skate rentals are $8 for adults and $6 for kids 12 and younger. Avid skaters can get a season skate-rental pass —
