Romantic Colorado Vacation - Garden of The Gods Resort

Hello everyone! Life has been pretty busy and from seeing all of the lovely share notification really has me grateful you all are still reading my posts. Especially since I have not posted in awhile.

I wanted to share with you my 'Travel Guide" to for a Romantic Colorado Getaway! It was such a treat! My husband has not flown in 15 years so I wanted to make it an unforgettable experience for him! #BestWifeAward . 

It's a check off our bucket list for sure!!! When planning our trip I wanted to go to the Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater. Now I arranged this entire trip literally around the date of the concert. Researching you hear people say you have to stop at Red Rock. I didn't want to just "stop" there I wanted to watch something! So I bought my husband Five Finger Death Punch Tickets (we are heavy metal fans) it was a unforgettable experience! This trip took about 6 months to plan!

Just so you know it is a very long walk up to get to the venue, then you have to walk a steep walkway up... Kinda felt like the great wall of china (not that I 've been...yet!) so wear extremely comfy shoes.

 My husband is such a social butterfly he was getting the line in front of us and in back of us pumped!

The reward of getting to our seats! Cervezas!

Unforgettable experience! Do know that when visiting Colorado you have to drink lots and lots of water? LoL, as you see the beers in our hands. We are from Texas so I do have to say we did get a little altitude sickness.. lingering headache. And no we were not hung over! But the more water we drank it subsided.

From there we wanted to stop at Garden of the Gods...I know what you are thinking...why didn't I start with this huh? Suspense killing you yet?!?? I never knew this, but you can literally drink wine with a science view of Garden of The Gods Park from the comfort of your own hotel room! You hear people hiking it but a resort that close! My husband and I were blown away! The look on his face was everything I hope for to treat the one you love! He kept saying it looked like a 007 super villain's hideout. Awesome response! 

Wine not! Wine while our room was being upgraded! Can't get over the view!

They have a beautiful restaurant downstairs and a yummy breakfast for 2. We received the romantic package "Love on the Rocks" which is a Luxury Accommodations with Mountain Views & Suite -Different rooms to choose from with Fireplace, In-Suite Wine & Dessert, In-Suite Breakfast for two.

From the resort is a 20 minute walk to the garden of the gods park area ...

The drive back from Garden of the Gods to Denver is absolutely beautiful. It's about an hour drive, we took an Uber!
