A stunning amount of what’s new in Colorado.

The logical side of your brain is likely concluding that little has happened during the most challenging days of the COVID-19 pandemic. Launches of new additions, renovations and venues have been delayed a bit in some cases, but the amount of new hotels and fresh experiences is simply astonishing.

Brady Johnson, a former member of the U.S. Ski Team, now balances time between C Lazy U Ranch, Destination Colorado, his family and the ski slopes. 

While most people retire just once in their lifetime, C Lazy U Ranch’s Brady Johnson wants to retire three or four times. 

“I think that’s the fun part about life. Find something new, chase a goal and accomplish it, and then find something even more fun and exciting that aligns with what you’re doing with your life at the time,” says Johnson. 

 

Colorado has become a mecca for some of the coolest food and market halls that are providing an array of options for groups. 

Food halls are no longer the latest darlings on the innovative restaurant scene. However, the advantage of more and more halls popping up around Colorado is the fact they are putting their own creative spin on the trend to stand out from the crowd. Luckily for meeting and event planners, one of the ways that many operators are stepping up their game is by offering specialized ways to accommodate groups.
