Legal weed, Casa Bonita and other drops in the 2014 bucket list

Categories: Best of Denver

As 2013 winds to a close, I can't say I'm sorry to see it go. Not because it was a particularly bad year, though. Just the opposite: 2013 was the first year in a long time that wasn't marked by some kind of personal tragedy. It was a year of minor triumphs and general pleasantness, unmarred by the kind of grief, misery and despair that's all too common in our lives these days. I didn't lose a job or anyone close to me; my worst moments came in the form of a few lost nights of sleep thanks to a toddler and a few days sidelined by a stomach virus. I'd like to think I can get through 2014 the same way, which is why I'm eager to get on with it - and with some of the items on my bucket list. -- Cory Casciato

With that in mind, we've dipped into our huge Best of Denver archive to find great destination suggestions in the city and within easy driving range for running, cycling, skateboarding, fishing and more. Look below to see ten photo-illustrated picks from the 2013 edition. Then get out there and enjoy Colorado.

There are few places better for people watching than Denver.

But what are the best spots for this pastime? For that, we consulted our handy Best of Denver archive. Look below to check out best people watching spots from more than a decade's worth of editions. They're worth watching.
