Here is what you need to know about the best pet friendly hotels and activities to get the most out of your cannabis vacation. Colorado boasts sunny skies and outdoor spaces, from city parks to mountain terrain. Bringing your four-legged bestie along for the fun is one of the most culturally-Colorado things a visitor can do, but logistics can be tricky.
Pet-friendly hotels in Denver
Many travelers choose lodging in Denver because it easily connects city life to great outdoors. Most ski resorts are within two hours driving distance, in addition to the accessibility of recreational marijuana.
My 420 Tours offers several Pet-Friendly and Cannabis Friendly hotels in Denver. Guests pay a $75 non-refundable fee to have safe, clean rooms that allow pets in a desirable city location. The pet-friendly hotel is a few blocks from the Denver Art Museum, capitol buildings, Colfax Avenue, and the Tattered Cover Bookstore, and bike sharing options are nearby for those looking to cover some ground while visiting.
No need to wonder where to buy your cannabis, as a handful of recreational dispensaries are within walking distance of 16th Street and Colfax. Most have weed bowls and vape pens available for purchase. Customers should be prepared to purchase in cash (ATMs are in most dispensaries).
Get high and go on adventures with your dog!
Beautiful city parks adorn Denver, and some parks have more dogs than strollers present. Throughout the summer months, City Park Jazz runs from 6-8PM on Sunday evenings for free (although cash donations are encouraged). Attendees are encouraged to bring a blanket and good company, which certainly includes your beloved fur baby.
For those looking for a good workout in a beautiful setting, consider Garden of the Gods park and trails. Based in Colorado Springs and about an hour south of Denver, the majestic scenery will give you the mile high experience. Trail lengths and difficulty levels vary, and dogs are required to be on leash at all times. Hop over to Manitou Springs for lunch and shopping, followed by a round of vintage pinball at Arcade Amusement, Manitou’s famous penny arcade.
Spend a relaxing evening earning back those carbs at Stella’s Coffeehaus. In the lovely Wash Park neighborhood, Stella’s offers coffee and pastries that will satisfy the fiercest of munchies. They offer water bowls and treats for your pooch, and are open until 11PM or midnight depending on the day.
