Highlands Ranch Ferris WheelTomorrow is Friday, it's actually Thursday, but since the real Friday is the 4th of July we get to make Thursday our Friday for the week. Ha ha! Holiday weekends are always better when the week-end means a 3 days off. What are you going to do with your 3 days off?

The choices in Denver metro are many. Fourth of July Fireworks will be dotting the city from the mountains to the plains.

My all-time favorite is the Cherry Creek Arts Festival. If you've never been this one is a must. As far as Art Festivals go, the 3-day Cherry Creek Arts Festival is the Grand-Daddy of them all and it is free!

Friday night is "First Friday" so if fireworks aren't enough for you, take a stroll down Santa Fe in Denver. You will be amazed at the diversity and talent found in this emerging art district.

Do you crave some outdoor action? Head for the hills...fish, hike, ATV, climb, picnic, cycle, fly, photograph or just relax and contemplate your navel. Whatever makes you happy you will find it somewhere in Colorado this weekend.

So who needs to leave home?
