This year the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) is bringing the physical therapy community together in Denver for the 2020 Combined Sections Meeting (CSM).

The Athletico team is proud to be part of the conference and looks forward to meeting attendees at the event – make sure to stop by the exhibit hall to come see us at booth #2041! In a previous blog we discuss how to make the most of your time while attending CSM (click here to read), however you may also be looking for tips on how to explore Denver and the surrounding cities during your time in Colorado. Here are some suggestions:

1. Tour Local Attractions

Whether you want to explore Red Rocks Park and Amphitheatre (15 miles outside of Denver) or take a road trip so you can hit the slopes before heading home, there is no shortage of activities for CSM attendees to choose from. A few other activities to keep on your radar include visiting the Denver Art Museum or Colorado Railroad Museum, or taking a tour of the Colorado State Capitol.

2. Try New Food and Drinks

The Denver area is home to a diverse selection of food that is sure to please even the pickiest of eaters. Start the day with a delicious biscuit sandwich or eggs benedict and end it with an Asian fusion or American small plate dinner. Don’t worry, if you are craving dessert you can swing by The Inventing Room Dessert Shop for a unique and sweet treat made with molecular techniques.

3. Shop ‘til You Drop

Need some retail therapy? Head out to the 16th Street Mall! This mile-long mall is full of shopping and restaurants to keep you busy. There’s a good chance you may see some street performers while you are out exploring too!

4. Take a Hike

There is a lot to do outdoors in Colorado, including hiking! Weather permitting, you can go out and find a nice trail to hike on with a group of friends. From a hike around Red Rocks Park to a more difficult trail at higher elevation, spending time outdoors can give you the true Colorado experience. Just make sure that you take precautions before you head out – like going with a group, hiking during daylight hours, wearing the proper gear and staying hydrated.

See You in Denver!

The Athletico team is proud to be part of CSM and excited to connect with talented therapists that share the same greater purpose of empowering people, inspiring hope and transforming lives. Our team is also looking forward to meeting attendees at the exhibit hall (we will be at booth #2041).
