Howdy, pup-lovers! This winter if you are looking for a dog-friendly getaway to a fun city a short drive from snow-covered mountains and all the activities of a winter wonderland, look no further than the desert capital of Colorado, The Mile-High City—also known as Denver.
Denver has made a name for itself with its thriving music scene, awesome dining and drink experiences, and nearby insta-worthy red rock formations begging to be explored.
