AT&T increases network coverage at Arapahoe Basin ski resort in Colorado

Calling Down the Mountain with AT&T and Arapahoe Basin

AT&T Coverage at Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort in Colorado Colorado. Mountains. Winter. Snow. Fun. They just go together. One of my favorite places for all these together is “The Legend”, Arapahoe Basin. For 20+ years I’ve been riding in Colorado, and A-Basin has always been the place I enjoy most. I’m certain a lot of it is personal preference, but I like how it's not the posh and polished apres ski focused village. It's where you go when you want to find out what you can really ride, and enjoy friends looking to find the same. I’ve sat on the lifts with random ski dogs (literally, furry fun-loving dogs), and relaxed at the base, aka "The Beach," grilling hotdogs with new pals I just met.
The Palm Denver offer brunch and a football bus to Broncos games with complimentary valet!

The Palm Denver Brunch + Bus for Broncos Games (Free Valet!)

OK, yeah, so... 2016 doesn't seem like the Broncos' year. But they are rebuilding, right? Not that I even know what I am talking about since I an about as unknowledgeable about sports as they come. But one thing I *do* know about: BRUNCH! It's pretty much my favorite thing if you follow our Swarm check-ins. We were thrilled when The Palm Denver invited us to check out their Broncos brunch recently, and ride the football bus over to the game. Of course, it happened to be the coldest day of the year so far, but we didn't mind. We'd sampled the Bloody Mary bar and dressed warm - plus the atmosphere on the bus was cozy. The Palm Denver offers a brunch with complimentary valet while the football bus brings you back and forth to the Broncos game!
Martinhal Chiado Family Hotel - Lisbon, Portugal

Lovely Family Suites in Lisbon: Martinhal Chiado

I was recently in Lisbon, Portugal, for Web Summit and had planned to stay near the conference the whole time. It was a wonderful surprise when Martinhal Chiado Family Suites reached out and asked if I would like to stay with them for part of my time in their town. They had just opened a new hotel in the fantastic Chiado neighborhood. Lucky for me, the night I stayed there, Web Summit was holding a "Night Summit" nearby - Night Summit being a code word for "party". So I got to explore a hotel that I definitely plan to return to with my family, tucked in an area of town I would have been exploring that night anyway. Perfect!

YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch: New Yurt Village and Fun Fall Activities

YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch: New Yurt Village + Fall Activities

Recently, we headed up the hill from Denver to check out the new "yurt village" at YMCA's Snow Mountain Ranch. Sometimes we Denverites forget how much beauty is so close to us, just a quick drive away. The yurts are a great option for families that want to camp, but still have some luxuries... you know - like electricity and beds. Each yurt can sleep up to 6 people, with one queen bed and two bunked beds. And! You can bring your dog. Something I will definitely keep in mind for next time. YMCA Snow Mountain Ranch - Winter Park, Colorado
