Daylight savings time has come and gone, and with it came longer days, warmer temperatures, and the undeniable feeling of spring. Flowers have begun to bloom, parks are swarmed with picnic-goers and joggers, and we have shed our winter garb. So in honor of our spring awakening we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 spring activities to do in Denver, keep reading below to see if your favorite activities made the cut.
In the early days of spring the mornings remain much darker, and as we progress towards the summer solstice in the middle of June, the days get gradually longer. With darker mornings come slower wakeups, which is why March and April are perfect months to eschew breakfast for brunch.
Our Favorite Denver Brunches: Devil’s Food, Lucille’s Creole Cafe, Snooze, Little Annita’s
- Coffee Shop Stops
Although we’ve had unseasonably warm weather recently, spring is typically a time for mild temperatures and partially cloudy days. So while it might not be warm enough for flip-flops and sunscreen, you can easily stay warm on neighborhood walks or breaks at the park with a cup of coffee from nearby.
Our favorite Denver Coffee Shops: Aviano, Devil’s Food, The Market
- Late Night Adventures
Springtime brings with it lingering sunshine, so your day doesn’t have to end after work. This lighter season is a great time to turn off Netflix and fill your calendar with fun after-work activities.
Our Favorite Late Night Adventures: Sipping n’ Painting, Ceramics in the City, Brewery Tours
- Dinner Out
Again thanks to a little extra sunlight during the day, it feels like we have more time to do things after work. It’s always fun to grab a group of friends and find a new restaurant in town to try.
Our Favorite Denver Restaurants: Work and Class, Linger, Gozo, Cuba Cuba
- Getting Outside
Although spring typically remains fairly cool, the brisk weather and softer light make it almost impossible to stay indoors. While we always love walks around the park, or hikes up our favorite trails, spring is also the perfect time to get your spades and gloves out, and revive your garden. We recommend planting flowers in late April or early May. One of our favorite stops when envisioning our perfect garden is the Botanic Gardens Plant Sale, where you can buy what you need for the perfectly enviably flower display.
