Rocky Mountain National Park
Over 300 miles of hiking trails, wildflowers, wildlife, and more are waiting for you to explore. If you're not into hiking, take a drive up Trail Ridge Road. Peaking out at over 12,000 feet, it is the highest continuously paved highway in the United States.
The gateway to Rocky Mountain National Park. A great place to unwind for a few days after the symposium. Arrange a fly fishing guide, take a horseback ride, or a jeep tour of the national park. Or just stop in after your day in the park, do some shopping and enjoy one of the many fine restaurants.
Home of the Rocky Mountain Woodturning Symposium - need we say more? Seriously, Loveland has a vibrant arts community and the city is adorned with an exceptional array of bronze sculptures.
Old Town Fort Collins
Just up the highway from Loveland, Fort Collins has a lot to offer. Take a walk around Old Town and visit shops and galleries featuring the work of local artists and craftsmen. Tour one (or more) of the dozens of craft breweries.
Promenade Shops at Centerra
If you like shopping, Centerra is just down the street.
Boyd Lake State Park
Picnicing, boating, fishing, camping, hiking. In Loveland, just about 9 miles from the Symposium.
