Wheelchair Accessible Cities To Visit Across the US

Wheelchair Accessible 1 On our last trip to CA, we saw a game at Angels Stadium and booked a hotel room near the stadium to be closer to the airport (wonderful CA traffic and all, lol). Not sure how it happened, but somehow we ended up with a wheelchair accessible room. Didn’t realize it until we checked as it was a hotel with suites and I thought maybe we had just gotten a free update since we checked in after 11. I did like the fact that it had a removable shower head and handrails. I am short, so it was nice to be able to use the removable shower head instead of trying to fight with a standard showerhead that I can never reach  🙁  I also liked that the bathroom was a little bigger than a standard room. Again, I thought it was just because it was a suite room. Continue reading “Wheelchair Accessible Cities To Visit Across the US”

Hammonds Candies in Denver, Colorado – Feel Like a Kid Again

Hammonds Candies - Candy CanesI must have been hungry today when I was working on my blog because I decided to share a company that has been here in Denver since 1920. According to their website: Over the past 90 years, the “Mile High” city of Denver, Colorado, has seen a number of fine chocolate and candy manufacturers come and go, but one special company is still very much in business. That business is Hammonds Candies. I have to say that I am very glad they are still here today. Continue reading “Hammonds Candies in Denver, Colorado – Feel Like a Kid Again”

Buffalo Bill Grave and Museum – Lookout Mountain, CO

Buffalo Bill Grave 1Since we moved here in 2014 I have had a few nieces and nephews come out to visit from California. While they were here, I had a great time getting to play tour guide. We had fun going to such places as the Garden of the Gods, Hammonds Candies, and Celestial Seasonings. However, I took two of them to a local attraction that actually was quite close to home for them. We visited the grave of Buffalo Bill who was their great or great-great uncle on their mother’s side. Since I am into genealogy, I thought this was so cool.  They both seemed interested and enjoyed visiting his gravesite and museum.

Hyatt Resorts – Hyatt Regency in Denver, CO

Hyatt Regency - FrontA few years ago we joined the Hyatt Reward program, and this year we decided to use some of our free nights. We also stayed at the Grand Hyatt in Denver while celebrating New Year’s Eve.  In actuality, we have stayed at three different properties since we joined their program and found each one wonderful and quite unique. Hope you enjoy learning more about each of these hotels in the coming weeks. I am starting this series with our latest stay at the Hyatt Regency in Denver.

Elitch Gardens Theme and Water Park – Denver, CO

Elitch Gardens 1

This was originally posted on my previous blog and updated. I love roller coasters and was happy to be able to visit Elitch Gardens phenomenal park in September of 2017. Until our visit, I had no idea how big it was or the history of the park. While waiting to enter, I jumped online and was surprised to find out that it opened on May 1 in 1890 but was moved from its original location in 1995. That was crazy to me, lol. I also learned that it was originally 28 acres, but today it’s more than 69 acres at its current location! Since there are actually two parks, I guess I shouldn’t have been surprised. One is a theme park and the other is a water park. We checked out the water park a little but mostly stayed in the theme park area. We both love roller coasters.
