Though you're in a great place to head up into the mountains, find a river to try your hand at fly fishing, ATV to abandoned gold mines, and take in the beauty of the land, there's no need to skip over the city itself. Spend an afternoon at the Lakewood Cultural Center and catch a show at the theater there one evening. Being directly next to Denver has its perks. Not only is there no shortage of Denver flights, they're often very affordable. Hop on over to the capital city and enjoy the museums of downtown, and the history of a Wild West settlement turned modern city. Hotels in Lakewood offer great proximity to Denver without having to pay big city prices. That means you can have fun while saving your money for some great Colorado beef at the same time.
Fortunately there are lots of cheap hotels in Lakewood, but that doesn't mean there's a lack of delicious eats. Though you'll find plenty of restaurants all around the city, the downtown stretch has a high concentration of great local eateries combined with a couple of brewhouses to keep you happy after your day in the mountains. Make sure you complete your visit to Lakewood by trying a steak from some of Colorado's fine cattle herds.
Booking one of Travelocity's Lakewood vacation packages is the best way to ensure that you see everything you can in this adventure-packed destination. You can even save up to $537 when you book your hotel and flight with us at the same time.
