It’s finally 2021! A new year to create long-lasting memories with friends and family. Even though COVID-19 is still around, don’t let it spoil your fun. Here are some safe ways to stay social while socially distanced this winter season.
Adventure at Horsetooth Reservoir
Just minutes from Fort Collins, Horsetooth Reservoir provides a wide selection of outdoor activities, whether you are looking to hike, snowshoe, horseback ride, bike or even have a snow day picnic. Spanning 6.5-miles, Horsetooth Reservoir is open year-round with breathtaking views and recreation for all.
Try Fat Biking
In Northern Colorado, snow doesn’t stop us from going on a bike ride in the majestic Rocky Mountains. Fat bikes are designed with two oversized tires that make for smooth riding on rough terrain so that you can continue to cruise on snow-packed trails. Cameron Pass and Lory State Park, outside of Fort Collins, offer amazing fat bike adventures. If you’re an inexperienced biker, no problem! Check out Front Range Ride Guides for a ride that will complement your abilities, fitness level and desires.
Outdoor Fitness Classes
If you’re missing the gym, Northern Colorado has some great socially-distanced outdoor fitness options. OpenAir-NoCo provides year-round outdoor training in Fort Collins’ beautiful parks so layer up and breathe in the fresh air! If you’re a yogi, check out Liv Barre’s COVID-friendly barre class and wine tasting at Sweet Heart Winery in Loveland on January 24th.
Support Local Restaurants
We know that indoor dining is still extremely limited, but why should that stop you from experiencing a delicious meal? As an alternative for going out to eat, try Noco Nosh, an independent delivery service for independent restaurants. Northern Colorado has some of the best local restaurants, so set up your dinner table or start up the fire for an outdoor meal with friends and place your order today!
We know connecting with friends and family can be difficult during these uncertain times. These are just a few ways that you can stay social and safe during the pandemic. So bundle up and get out there for some socially-distanced fun. And don’t forget your mask!
