Something that wasn't a thing when I was a kid, that I remember anyway,  was a "staycation." Sometimes a break is needed over summer, winter, spring break, etc., but taking an airplane or a long road trip isn't in the cards

In most cases, going someplace close to home that isn't home, where you can let loose and have some fun for a few days is all you need. This Colorado resort is the perfect staycation destination for any time of year, and it just got even better.

This past spring, the Gaylord Rockies Resort debuted the first two of their many new additions, including an English Pub called "The Fortunate Prospector,"  a 360 wrap-around bar called "Embers Lodge Bar," and a fantastic Grand Lodge redesign. The Grand Lodge was always a sight to see, and this new revamp helped create a new energy and vibe in the hotel's centerpiece location.

These fantastic additions (with more on the way) seen in the pictures above, paired with their already incredible indoor and outdoor pools, which include three super rad water slides and a lazy river, the arcade, and many already existing food and beverage options, and more, it's hard to beat the Gaylord Rockies when it comes to Colorado Staycations, or a place for friends and family to stay while visiting.
