Denver is surrounded by natural beauty. But, that doesn’t mean that business people working in Denver can easily unwind. That’s why various Denver spas have made it their mission to offer guests a complete disconnected space free from any signs of WiFi or electronic life. If this sounds appealing to you, it’s time for a break! Take a look at these Denver spots begging you to disconnect from the world around you (just for a few days!).
1. Shambala Mountain Center: there’s no sign of wifi or any other technology at this retreat. You will be treated to a plethora of stress-reducing classes, though. Sign up for yoga, meditation, or another class to clear your mind, but leave your phone and television behind. Rates start at around $79 per night.
2. Mount Princeton Hot Springs Resort: if you are going to visit this hot springs resort in order to relax and unwind, leave your connected world behind. The main lodge does offer wifi, but that’s the only spot where you’ll find bits of your connected life. Otherwise, the resort if yours to explore sans technology – doesn’t that sound nice?
3. Lower Lake Ranch: if you don’t want to travel too far, you can check out the Lower Lake Ranch that’s located approximately 40 miles outside of Denver. This ranch is all about the outdoors, and it has very little to do with the Internet world. Sorry, folks, you can’t Instagram these pictures!
4. Elmwood Camp: this one is for the kids! If your kids are spending way too much time playing video games and networking on social sites, this camp is where it’s at. At first, they might protest, but the activities at Elmwood Camp will keep your kids occupied on a daily basis. This is a day camp, too, so your kids can connect at night.
5. Rafting on the Colorado River: we dare you to whip out an iPhone while you are rafting on this river! Forget about wifi, the Internet, and smartphones as you careen through the river bends on any Colorado River rafting trip. You can find lots of deal and details for various rafting trips by searching the Internet (the last chance you’ll get before you go!).
6. Just put your phone in a drawer. Okay, this isn’t a resort or retreat, but, really, Colorado is filled with so many hiking trails, natural wonders, and amazing outdoor beauty that it’s simple to just leave your phone behind. Ditch your phone, tablet, and laptop for an afternoon by leaving it at home while you head outdoors to enjoy Colorado’s natural beauty.
