The dog days of summer have certainly arrived, and it's about high time to cool off in the Mile High City! Just because we're landlocked doesn't mean we don't have plenty great spots to dive into! Whether you want to enter the splash zone at one of our great water parks or relax at the reservoir, there's so much refreshing fun to be had all within a stone's throw of us here at the Holiday Inn Cherry Creek!
Just 15 minutes north of Denver is one of America's largest family water parks - Water World! Take the whole family and jump into the fun! Head down the signature Double Dare, a dual water slide that lands you right into a cool pool. Or for your inner explorer, take a Voyage to the Center of the Earth! You'll take a water tube ride through a dark cave and see when dinosaurs ruled the earth!
If you're looking for something a little more laid back, there are also plenty of lakes and reservoirs that offer great freshwater swimming while a beautiful backdrop of Colorado's incredible mountains paints a perfect picture. Hop into the Aurora Reservoir, just outside of Denver. There are no boats allowed in the water, which make it great for swimming, fishing, and even scuba diving!
Cherry Creek State Park, Boulder Reservoir, and Jackson Lake State Park all also have plenty of great swimming in the area. So take your pick and cool off under that mountain sun! Of course, if you'd rather stay even more local, you can always just jump into our pool right here at the Holiday Inn at Cherry Creek and relax!
