During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Pug Ryan's Lakeside Tiki Bar (Frisco)
Drinks on a patio by the ocean may not be an option, but drinks on a patio by a gorgeous lake? You can do that at Pug Ryan's Lakeside Tiki Bar in Frisco! Enjoy margs (or whatever cold drink your heart desires) and delicious food alongside Lake Dillon, which is even more beautiful than an ocean with its mountain backdrop.
2. Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory (Denver)
Nestled away within the must-visit Denver Botanic Gardens, the Boettcher Memorial Tropical Conservatory is an 11,000-square-foot wonderland full of exotic flowers, plants, trees, and humidity that you will only find on a tropical island. (Psst... while you are there, be sure to check out the rest of the Botanic Gardens, too!)
3. The Island (Aurora)
Welcome to The Island, AKA America's premier volleyball facility! Featuring 6 indoor and 2 outdoor volleyball courts, The Island - with its sandy courts and colorful beach murals - will make you think you are playing sand volleyball at a resort in Cancun. In addition to sand volleyball, The Island also offers tropical drinks and gourmet food.
4. Rock Canyon Swim Beach (Pueblo)
Are you ready to hit the beach? Then head south to Pueblo and its Rock Canyon Swim Beach! Situated alongside the Lake Pueblo Dam, Rock Canyon is THE place to be for sand and sun, as well as camping, tubing, and other various water sports.
5. Ohana Grill (Edgewater)
Hungry? You have come to the right place! Welcome to the Ohana Grill, which will make you think you have left the Centennial State for the Islands of Aloha, thanks to its tropical ambiance, unique fare with an Asian twist, and colorful drink menu. Yum!
6. IVP at the Beach House (Colorado Springs)
Last but certainly not least on our list of Colorado Caribbean paradises is the IVP at the Beach House! Formerly known as BooDad's Beach House, IVP is a "place to eat, drink & play with friends" thanks to its extensive food and drink menu, sand volleyball, and beachy vibe.
