Experience Honnibrook Craft Meadery
Indulge in a decadent glass of history at Honnibrook Craft Meadery. Widely regarded as the oldest fermented beverage in existence, honey and water are fermented together to create an alcoholic beverage called mead. At Honnibrook — just down the road in Castle Rock — discover more about the fermentation process and the other ingredients that are used to produce a variety of results. Following their guidelines for a safe and socially distant experience, enjoy live music, food trucks, and karaoke.

Hike Spruce Mountain Open Space And Trail
Situated between Larkspur and Monument, you’ll find the stunning Spruce Mountain Open Space and Trail. Pack a healthy lunch — with help from your glimmering brand new kitchen at The Canyons —  and set out for a 30 minute road trip to this beautiful slice of Colorado paradise. With 1,390 acres of open space and 8.5 miles of trails, you and your family can enjoy spotting wildlife, ride mountain bikes, and even take a trip down the trail on horseback. Whether you plan to embark on a five mile hike or just take the dog for light exercise, take in the majesty of the iconic Rocky Mountains along the Spruce Mountain Trail.

Miller Activity Complex
For the thrill-seekers in your family, consider spending the day at Miller Activity Complex (MAC). With a wide variety of activities, family fun awaits in Castle Rock. Experience indoor swimming pools — with four lap lanes and a water slide — as well as batting cages, indoor synthetic fields, a trampoline play area, and more. To ensure the safety of your loved ones, check their website to make your reservations and stay up-to-date surrounding COVID-19 protocols and visitor pricing. In just a quick 15 minute car ride from home at The Canyons, your family can stretch their legs and get their hearts pumping at the MAC.

Stroll At Bluffs Regional Park In Lone Tree
Perfect for any fitness level, this spacious park offers 3.72 miles of trails which suit a wide variety of fitness levels. Bluffs Regional Park is open sunrise to sunset and features 235 acres of Colorado beauty. As you meander along the scenic pathways, you’ll notice the chirping birds and scampering critters that inhabit the area. With breathtaking views of grassland vegetation and the Front Range mountains, don’t forget to bring a camera along for the trek.
