We’re not out of winter’s grasp just yet! We have a few more weeks of the chilly season before we start to enjoy the soaring temperatures that mark the lazy days of summer. Fortunately, there are plenty of places near our Centennial, Colorado, apartments that are just a staycation away!
Centennial is just a hop, skip and jump (or ride on the light rail) from downtown Denver. As Colorado’s capital city, you’ll find plenty of eats, drinks, and activities around every corner when you choose Denver as your staycation destination.
To keep your body warm, make sure you stop by some of the city’s breweries. The temperatures outside might be the same as they are at your apartment, but you’ll be nice and toasty after you’ve had a few brews. If beer’s not your thing, check out one of the distilleries around town.
When you’re finished touring downtown, get a hotel room and enjoy the heat in a sauna inside a luxury spa.
If it seems contradictory to head to higher elevations when you want to be warmer in the winter, hear us out! The briskness of the air at the beginning of the year only makes the experience at Strawberry Springs even more incredible. With water temperatures naturally staying around 102 degrees Fahrenheit, you’ll understand why Coloradans appreciate having this type of thermal blanket in their backyards.
About an 8-hour drive from Denver lies the place where Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, and Utah come together. This southwestern part of the Centennial State, also known as the Four Corners, is a desert region that’s rich in history. It showcases the lives of the peoples who have lived here since ancient times. Thanks to a plethora of parks and a ton of tiny towns that’ll give you an interesting perspective on the idea of a vacation, the Four Corners is a fun way to escape winter without ever leaving the state. Of course, you can also leave the state three times by literally taking a hop, skip or jump, but who’s counting?
When you love the place you live, you won’t ever want to leave. That’s the environment we strive to create at The Apartments at Greenwood Plaza. Schedule a tour, so you can see our community for yourself!
