Weather, traffic, construction, tourists — they all come into play when road tripping from Denver into the mountains. Luckily for Coloradans and visitors, these re-fueling options dot the way, making the journey taste just as good as the destination.
Starting just outside Denver, ending as far as Grand Junction, on the way to distant ski resorts, and well into the mountains, these 16 bars, breweries, distilleries, and restaurants are worth the pull-off. They serve hand pies, tacos, barbecue, cocktails, even coursed backcountry dinners.
