Touch the Rockies in Lakewood

Standing on the edge of the famous American Rocky Mountains, Lakewood has long been the stepping stone between downtown Denver and iconic ski fields like Echo Mountains, Winter Park, and Vail, not to mention hiking on the Dinosaur Ridge and in the vast Roosevelt National Forests. On the other side of town are totemic attractions like the Denver Art Museum and the Denver Zoo, making Lakewood vacation rentals a well-rounded choice for a vacation that has both outdoors exploration and cultural treats for the whole family.

Walking boots are required in Lakewood

No matter if you want to pull on the ski boots or the walking shoes, Lakewood has you covered. Just an hour's drive to the west on I-70 gets you into the deep heart of the Rockies, where countless gondolas and swinging ski lifts serve thousands of miles of groomed piste – some of the best in America. Summertime ushers in oodles of other activities, ranging from swimming in mountain lakes to clambering on craggy trails over the Front Range. Those less inclined to go outdoors could opt for helicopter flyovers of the mountains, or just linger in town to taste Denver's top-notch craft beer.


There’s snow and sun in Lakewood

Eager to pull on the ski boots and don the salopettes in the Rocky Mountains? Then it's surely the main winter season, between December and March, that's the best time for you to book those Lakewood vacation rentals. Prefer hitting dry hiking trails, picnic parks, and sunny mountain lakes? The summer is high time for that, which means searching for places to stay on the edge of Denver sometime between May and August.
