Located just a short 30-minute drive south of Denver, Castle Rock is a phenomenal date destination. The town has festivals and events that take place regularly throughout the year, including a Cinco de Mayo Street Party in May, and a WineFest in July. However, any day is a great day to visit Castle Rock to enjoy a great date filled with food, fun, and adventure.
Maddie's Biergarten in downtown Castle Rock is a local favorite. A fab place for a first date or to spend time with someone that you already know like the back of your hand. The communal outdoor Biergarten creates a casual, laid-back atmosphere offering an extensive list of on-tap beers. You can spend an afternoon over a beer flight, listening to live music on Fridays and Saturdays, or nourishing your inner rock stars with Thursday night Open Mic. Save the date, August 11, 2018, for Maddiepalooza V, a day filled with beer, food, fun, and music all to raise money for some of Douglas County's most deserving organizations.
Another local staple in Castle Rock is Union Bistro. Their Happy Hour, Tuesday thru Saturday afternoons from 2-6, is a must. Offering beer, wine, and drink specials, $4 fresh squeezed lime & agave nectar margaritas floated with 'Boulevard unfiltered wheat beer', and discounts on 20 of their most popular, fantastically eclectic menu items, like, Shishito peppers with garlic aioli & Grey salt, Deli 'Cigars' with housemade pastrami, Swiss, sauerkraut & 1000 island, and Italian Egg Rolls with pesto & balsamic.
If you want your date to have more caloric expenditure than intake, then Castle Rock will provide you with an ample amount of hiking and biking. Hidden Mesa Trail to Cherry Creek Trail is a 6.5 mile moderate, dog-friendly, in-out trail that is suitable for both hiking and mountain bikes. Something a little less strenuous, offering more of a leisurely stroll with minimal if any elevation gain is Chuck's Loop. This 1.5-mile loop takes you around the top of the mesa so that you can take in stunning views of the valley and canyon beyond. There are many great hiking and biking trails in and around Castle Rock that will expose you to fantastic views and hopefully some wildlife. You are sure to find one to match the skill and motivation level of you and your date.
A little bit of a thrill may be in order. If that is the case, you can't go wrong by heading over to Castle Rock Adventure Sports. You will get your fill of thrill with a zip line tour, 3 level Epic Sky Trek Challenge Course, or the Epic Adventure including the Superman Leap of Faith. Each of these adventures can be purchased separately, or a Gold Pass will get you a full day of all three heart-thumping adventures.
