Play inside (or outside) with dad in Black Hawk this Weekend!

Hike, bike and explore before treating dad with a beer and a bet in Black Hawk

Father's Day gift ideas don't have to be difficult anymore. It's 2021! Yet, we do the same things year in and year out, golf, gift cards, the same restaurants, etc... This year, beat the Front Range heat and the I-70 traffic. Treat dad to something new, a hidden adventure conveniently 45 minutes from Denver in Black Hawk!

If it's been a while since he's been there, a lot has changed! Kick-off his Father's Day celebration by exploring the all-new hiking on trails on Maryland Mountain. The 3.9-mile hike is a great way to get dad's heart pumping, ahead of the incredible views he'll see at the top!

If Dad is more of the adrenaline junkie type, the all-new downhill mountain bike trail, Hard Money, isn't for the faint of heart!

After a morning on the trails, Dad's probably famished! Time to refuel with a cold craft Colorado beer and a mouthwatering Colorado Fourteener-inspired burger that's guaranteed to satisfy his hunger at Monarch Casino's TwentyFour-7 restaurant. While Dad fills up, he can place a wager on the award-winning BetMonarch app while catching a ball game on one of the 4K TVs that are always showing the most exciting sporting events!

If beers and bets aren't Dad's thing, the all-new Spa Monarch has treatments ready to remedy his sore muscles from the morning adventure and views that rival the peak of Maryland Mountain! You, know? Mom probably wouldn't mind either...

Finally, the cherry on top of Dad's best Father's Day ever is a table-side service and craft cocktails at the award-winning Monarch Chophouse.

Whether Dad wants to stay all weekend or just play for the afternoon, Monarch Casino Resort Spa is a short and easy 45-minute drive west of Denver through Colorado’s breathtaking and refreshingly cool high country. He will get a VIP experience from the moment you self-park in Monarch’s state-of-the-art parking garage and start planning your next trip back to Colorado’s premier gaming resort destination.
