We have a dog named Heidi. She's Schnauzer and Heeler. Our first dog!
Royal GorgeRoyal Gorge Bridge and Park
Super disappointed that they now CHARGE just to walk across the bridge. I've been here before and it's always been free. They charge for zip lining, rafting, the train ride, the cable car, and the bungee thing. How about just letting folks WALK? So sad. We turned around and left, and we loved Royal Gorge before.
Manitou Cliff DwellingsManitou Cliff Dwellings
Pretty sure the cliff dwellings have been patched over or are fake. But they're good and they're interesting and the dog can go, so move on. The gift shop is AMAZING and huge and has so much ART and stuff. If you want to take time to read all the info at Manitou Cliff Dwellings you'll learn a lot. Pup loved it!
Pikes PeakPikes Peak Highway
What's not to love? I guess that you can't drive quite all the way to the top! Anyway, pup rode in the truck, loved the cool air, and we had a blast. So pretty!
Red Rock CanyonRed Rock Canyon Open Space
Honestly, hubs and I needed to be in better shape because we're from Texas and the air is thinner here. Time to start walking again, kids! Anyway, it was hot as Hades and so we didn't do all that well on the hike. Heidi the pup handled it like a champ and loved it. We stayed on the main trails. The offshoots were probably better. Didn't stay long.
Bear Creek Dog Park rocks!Bear Creek Dog Park
Biggest barking place ever!! Our pup had a great time in the small dog area, which was a full two acres. The big dog area is even larger. Benches and picnic tables in the shade, water for pups, poop bags, garbage cans, loads of room. Best dog park ever! It's worth barking about!
Palo DuroPalo Duro Canyon State Park
The canyons were closed because of rain and safety issues from slides and damage. But the nice guy in the booth steered us to the North Rim. Kind of a drive, but it was nice to get out of the car and see the canyon, take some pix and walk the dog. Some day I want to go back and do the hikes, etc. It's pretty.
Cadillac RanchCadillac Ranch
People are all kinds of quirky. And the guy who created this is no less so! It was muddy and basically, people just spray pain the Caddies, the ground, whatever. Not much to do but look and it and move on. The little gift shop down the road is cute, and there will be all kinds of hawkers at the Cadillac Ranch selling food and souvenirs, so stop so you can stay you did. Doggies can go, too.
John Stiff Memorial Dog ParkJohn Stiff Memorial Dog Park
Neat place with LOTS of room to roam. The pup had a great time meeting other dogs and chasing her ball. The entire park is lovely, and you need to be sure to see the prairie dogs!
Smokey Joe'sSmokey Joe's
Basically kind of a biker bar, but for sure interesting! The food was delish and the wait staff so nice. They brought our pup a bowl of water and gave her loves. This is on Route 66 so cool!
Joe TacoJoe Taco
Food was good except the chicken on my salad was very dry and overcooked. Nothing special done for the pup, but she was allowed to stay with us on the patio. Nice server.
Pub DogPub Dog Colorado
Neat place. The food was good and the pup could be with us, in fact, almost everyone there had a dog. The confusing thing was the dog run. It said it was for 'members,' so we didn't take our dog back there. However, it seemed like everyone else did so whatever. Good food, and the staff was pretty nice.
Colorado RoomColorado Room
Tables in front and back for those with dogs. Good food. Really nice staff!
Cerberus Brewing Co.Cerberus Brewing Company
Wonderful place. Super busy on a weekday noon but there's a good reason! Dogs welcome on the patio, food is amazing. Get the poutine and the sliders!
A MUST-DO3.14 Sweet and Savory Pi Bar
OMG! The pies!!! We ate a Julia's Child pot pie and shared it. Smart move, because what we REALLY wanted were the dessert pies. By the time all was said and done, we'd eaten rhuberry (amazing), coconut cream (fabulous) and key lime (to die for!). The pup was treated like a queen and the owner was super friendly. She also owns a dog training company in Florida and gave us some tips on dog training! This will be the FIRST place I go if I ever return to COS.
Burrowing OwlThe Burrowing Owl
Small place. Really funky. We sat on the patio, which is so architecturally fun that it's worth a look! You sit on benches and eat on tv trays. Quirky! The food was good and different. It's all vegan. I had PBJ with began bacon and it was delicious! The pup had a good time and was given water by the staff.
Stuft A Burger BarStuft A Burger Bar
Oh, mercy me. This is some good stuff! Small patio. Dog treated well. Food delicious! You can watch folks walk by and see the sights. Such a WONDERFUL waitress, Amanda. Ask for her!
La Quinta West Medical CenterLa Quinta Inn Amarillo West Medical Center
No mirror in the room, which makes it hard to get ready. Torn carpet. I guess the room was serviceable, but nothing more. The pet area was horrible. Poop everywhere and no poops bags in the holder. I would fault the pet owners, but I bet some of them would pick up the poo if there were bags. Breakfast was in a sack and nothing good.
Baymont in Lawton, OKBaymont Inn & Suites Lawton
This hotel is clean and quiet. Breakfast was decent and free. Nothing fabulous but it was comfortable and they accept dogs!
Days Inn Salina South, UghDays Inn Salina
Unless you're not expecting anything at all but nice people, don't stay here. The carpet was sopping wet by the nightstand, there were hordes of flies in the room which continued to come from out of the blue, and the bathroom floor was dirty. There were no tissues in the tissue box, and there was an empty water bottle tossed on the floor. Not a good neighborhood. Apparently, not a good cleaning crew at the hotel, either! Really shabby. Probably needs to meet with a bulldozer.
Great place!Holiday Inn Express Hotel & Suites Ft Collins
Huge room with a sofa for pup to rest on, a comfy bed, and a nice clean space. Breakfast was also good. We loved staying here. HI and Suites does not disappoint!
