How to Have a Fun and Cheap Labor Day Weekend in Colorado
If you want to have a fun Labor Day weekend in Colorado, without a high cost, here's how you can do it. Who says you can't have major fun on the cheap?
On Friday, September 1st, Skillet, and Colton Dixon will be rockin' the amphitheater at Las Colonias Park. Tickets are $35, which is a cheap, fun way to start your Labor Day weekend.
This could be a day trip, a one night trip or an all weekend trip! There are so many parks and places to camp in Colorado. Saddlehorn Campground at the Monument and the Island Acres section at James M. Robb State Park are two that are within 30 minutes of Grand Junction. It's $35 to camp at the Monument and at Saddlehorn and you can make a reservation.While you're at the Monument or at James M. Robb State Park, you can fish, you can hike, you swim, you can boat and more!
Is camping not your thing? I've got something for you! So hotels can get pretty pricey, especially for a long weekend. I've used VRBO (Vacation Rental By Owner) and had a great experience! Denver, San Juan National Forest, Colorado Springs, Fort Collins and Crested Butte are just a few of your options for your Labor Day weekend. While you're staying at your Fort Collins castle that you booked through VRBO, you could check out Tour de Fat. Beer, music, magicians and circus performers are all at this festival, and New Belgium is the sponsor, did I say beer? Tickets are only $25!
Life is stressful! Soak away your stress at one of Colorado's many hot springs. Iron Mountain Hot Springs, Glenwood Hot Springs Lodge, and clothing optional Orvis Springs are within two hours from Grand Junction. You can book a room or camp and maybe even get a massage. All days soaks are around $20. Taking my clothes off and stargazing while taking a dip sounds really good to me!
