Gals: Are you looking for that perfect spot to tell your sweetheart to propose? (If you answered yes, share this article to their Facebook!)
If you answered yes to either of these, we’ve got you covered with some romantic things to do in Colorado if you’re planning to propose. Here are the 11 best romantic places in Colorado for an epic marriage proposal:
1.) On the Elitch Garden's ferris wheel at dusk.
The tippy top of the Elitches ferris wheel offers the most BEAUTIFUL views of Denver -- this is a must do for your city loving honey!
2.) At a romantic riverside restaurant
Colorado has several riverside restaurants, like the Grand Rapids in Grand Lake (pictured) that provide the perfect ambiance for your perfect proposal.
3.) At the ballpark
Is your honey a die-hard Rox fan? (Even when they are doing this terrible? #dedication...) If so, propose to her at Coors Field! Broadcasting your proposal on the message board costs only $50 (the least expensive of any ballpark)!
4.) At a cozy mountain bed and breakfast
My best friend and her husband got engaged at a B&B in Estes Park and she said it was like something out of a movie! For added romance, make sure to request their turndown service, complete with chilled champagne, strawberries, and chocolate (where available).
5.) After a stunning hike
Colorado is home to the most beautiful scenery in the world (says the unbiased Coloradoan), so why not pop the question with a background as incredible at the Maroon Bells?!
6.) On top of the world on the Telluride Gondola
When she says "yes," you'll feel as though you're on top of the world -- so why not actually propose somewhere that feels like the top of the world?
7.) Soaring over the Continental Divide
See #6 for identical "on top of the world" caption.
8.) Among blooms and lights
I have friends who got engaged at the Denver Botanic Gardens and it sounded AMAZING -- just know that you'll have to wait until the Christmas season for their "Blossoms of Light" display. If you can't wait that long, why not consider...
9.) A quaint local winery
...proposing at a local vineyard? Colorado is home to several beautiful and unique wineries perfect for your engagement!
10.) Sleigh ride through the mountains
If you ask me, there is nothing more romantic than a horse drawn sleigh (or even carriage) -- whether you propose in the mountains or on a carriage in LoDo, you are sure to be making outstanding memories that will last a lifetime.
11.) After dark at Red Rocks
Taking a picnic to Red Rocks on a night with no events and proposing with the Denver skyline shining brightly in the distance? Gold!
