No longer is a trip abroad required to indulge in a tourist friendly weed vacation. Thanks to the sweeping trend of cannabis legalization across the nation, new weed-cation destinations are popping up constantly, but Colorado will always remain partial in our hearts as pioneers of a recreational industry designed with tourism in mind.
Dodging issues regarding public consumption (including consumption on federal land), Colorado has been able to create a cannabis tourist haven complete with local cannabis products, tours and educational courses, and even lodging catered to the stoner in us all. But, Colorado is a big state with a lot of far-reaching activities. If you need help planning your next Colorado vacation, let us be your guide.
Where to Stay on Your Colorado Weed-Cation
Just because weed is legal in Colorado doesn’t mean you can light up (or vape) anywhere you want to.
Colorado’s Clean Indoor Air Act still applies which blocks smokers from consuming in public areas like parks, restaurants, sporting arenas or residential common areas. To ensure you can toke on some Colorado cannabis while in the area, we suggest scoping out some of these 420-friendly lodging options.
Things to Do While High in the Rockies
Want to experience a weed-cation in all its glory? Numerous Colorado cannabis companies offer tours, classes, meet-ups and events designed with the stoner in mind. Hop aboard a luxury limousine before heading out on a private tour of dispensaries, glass shops and grow houses at Mile High Limo Tours or wine and dine with a cannabis-infused dinner and cannabis pairing at Cultivating Spirits. There’s a lot of fun events and cannabis activities in Colorado so start planning now! (And don’t forget to save some time for hitting the slopes before heading back, either.)
Where to Find the Best Bud in Colorado
As the first state in the nation to implement recreational cannabis sales, you can bet we have a lot of dispensaries to choose from – like seriously, a lot. Colorado has more dispensaries than McDonalds or Starbucks combined, most of which are owned by different companies, to boot. That means there are a lot of different cultivation facilities, product manufacturers and distributors to choose from. That’s why, to find the best marijuana in Colorado, it’s important to do a little research first.
Our interactive dispensary locator can help you find dispensaries near you, then each store’s profile can take you deeper into the experience without ever having to leave your couch. Our readers contribute regularly to reviews of both strains and dispensaries to help you decide which stores are worth the visit and which are better left in the shadows. After visiting a dispensary, be sure to leave a review for anyone else planning a weed vacation.
In addition to our dispensary directory, be sure to search our deals page for hundreds of coupons on edibles, concentrate, flower and much more! We work with many dispensaries to help you save money on cannabis products and our deal system is highly filterable, meaning you can find what you want with ease.
Everyone needs some time away every now and then. If you’ve been thinking about planning a cannabis-themed vacation, there’s never been a better time than now. Use our simple guide to help plan the details of your next marijuana vacation or let a cannabis tour guide handle it for you.
