9:00am-4:00pm  Experience Colorado is an opportunity for you to experience the local flavor of the beautiful State of Colorado. The idea is to provide you the time to enjoy Colorado in an activity that interests you. We have begun compiling a list of options and as we gauge the interest of each activity, we will narrow down exact details of the activity including departure times from the hotel as well as estimated times each group will return back to the hotel. Activities include: Trip to Georgetown, Hiking, Biking, Brewery Tour, Downtown Experience, Golf, and much more!
