Why did you come to Colorado?
I am a native! I was born in Grand Junction which is on the western side of the state, known as the Western Slope. My parents were both born in Colorado, and my mother’s side of the family has been in Colorado for generations. We moved to Denver in 2000.
What is your favorite place and why?
My favorite place is Denver! I love the variety this city has to offer! First thing in the morning you can get in a hike or an organized charity run, then head to your favorite local craft brewery to enjoy their seasonal brew on a patio, and finally finish the day off with a concert or a catch a sporting event! Best part is all of those activities are within an hour of one another! Another perk of living in Denver is the weather is always gorgeous!
What do you want our guests to know about your favorite destination that they may not know?
Denver has a lot of history and fun facts to learn! As a city formed by the gold rush we have many tales and stories on how our city was founded. Being the ‘mile high city’ there are a lot of fun facts to learn about the cause and effect of altitude. Just let Realize know what you are interested in learning about and we can take it from there!
What is your favorite activity in Colorado?
I love visiting different towns and cities. There is so much to do in Colorado, that I haven’t done it all! You can head up to Georgetown and ride the train to take in the scenery, or travel to Telluride to take in a blues festival. We have many destinations in Colorado, and I enjoy being able to visit them and learn about my state.
Why should our clients have their group event in Colorado?
Colorado can accommodate any size group with varying personalities. We can take a group to the mountains while another group stays around town for a brewery or city tour. With nearly 300 days of sunshine it is always a beautiful day here, and who wouldn’t be happy with the sun shining! Denver is centrally located making it a great destination meeting place for groups traveling from various destinations.
Why should they hire Realize Colorado?
