Just 30 Minutes From Denver, Bennett Is The Perfect Colorado Day Trip Destination
Do you need to escape the hustle and bustle of the big city, if not for only an hour or two? No problem, as all of our biggest cities are surrounded by charming small towns! If you are in Denver and need to get away, however, we have to recommend visiting the small plains town of Bennett, which is the perfect Colorado day trip destination:
Welcome to Bennett, home to nearly 2,500 residents and a surprising amount of things to see and do!
Named after the family who first homesteaded in the area in the 1860s, Bennett is surrounded by beautiful farmland and wide-open spaces, making it seem like it is a million miles away from reality.
With beautiful landscapes comes stellar outdoor recreational opportunities, and Bennett is no exception, thanks to world-class hunting, a beautiful golf course, impressive parks, and more.
Whether you're traveling with kids or are just an animal lover yourself, you will want to check out one of Bennett's many unique animal rescues and farms, like Longhopes Donkey Shelter, LaZyB Acres, and Tall Grass Farms.
Are you hungry? Good, because there are plenty of delicious, locally-owned cafes and restaurants to choose from that offer everything from Mexican food to pizza, wings, and down-home American.
What's a small town without a charming downtown area? Bennett has that, too!
