It’s the last full weekend of January, how are those 2020 resolutions working out?

If your resolution was to experience more, move more or learn more, stay tuned Denver! There’s something for everyone this weekend. 

For a one of a kind experience, play a pioneer for a night with The Oregon TrailⓇ: IRL at the History Colorado Center. For those looking to be active, go to the Downtown Denver Rink at Skyline Park on Friday for free ice skate rentals. And if you need a bit of ‘fitspiration’ to get yourself in gear, check out the Houston Rockets vs. Denver Nuggets on Sunday. 

Looking to learn something this weekend? Get a behind the scenes tour of current exhibits at the MCA on Friday.

Have at it Denver!
