In the afternoon, make your way to the 1,000-year-old ruins at Manitou Cliff Dwellings for a look at the fascinating architecture of the ancient Anasazi people. The site is open daily. Admission is $12 for adults, $8 for children, and free for dogs.
At the end of your day, grab a meal at Pub Dog Colorado, where you can dine indoors with your dog. Food is served counter-service style (in dog bowls!), and the restaurant boasts an impressive canine menu. Fido can burn off the calories at the restaurant’s fenced dog park.
