What was once a desolate destination for miners is now an affluent, active town full of employment opportunity, tourism, and beautiful natural parks. With over 400 acres of canyons and state grounds, Castle Rock is the perfect destination for any lover of the outdoors. Men, women, and children benefit from countless athletic leagues and recreational centers. Golf players boast living in one of Livibility’s ten best golf cities. And for the thrill seeker, Castle Rock offers an adventurous, scenic zip lining route and several outdoor biking and hiking trails.
While some of us may not be eager to zipline 150 feet above ground at 50 miles per hour, we may seek thrills in other ways - through art, for example. Luckily, Castle Rock also boasts a thriving community of local artists; men and women, creatively spurred on by both the incomparable beauty and history of their state and the human race.
The artistic community is manifested in one way through The Castle Rock Art Guild - an organization providing local Colorado artists with an opportunity to continually inspire and be inspired. The grassroots group holds events throughout the year to allow local artists to showcase and sell their work. The CRAG allows Castle Rock’s breath-taking views to serve as the backdrop for events such as a Party in the Park - an outdoor get-together in a canyon park full of food, beer, fireworks, and artist booths.
While all CRAG functions are enriching, the most exciting event for artists in Castle Rock occurs once a year on the weekend after Labor Day: the Colorado ArtFest, hosted by the Castle Rock Chamber of Commerce. It is here that hundreds of artists gather from across the country to display their own art and enjoy the art of their peers. With continual live music, a wide variety of food trucks, and a featured artist, the ColoradoArt Fest is a one-of-a-kind perks.
If neither art nor nature peaked your interest, but your ears perked at “food trucks”, then listen up: Castle Rock, Colorado is a culinary haven. The lively town hosts dozens of restaurants featuring many varied cuisines, and three awesome breweries: Castle Rock Beer Company, Rockyard Brewing Company, and 105 West Brewing Company. Plus, with a large young working class population, primarily employed in Denver Technology Center, Castle Rock nightlife is a bustling business.
Now, you may ask, what does all this have to do with flowers?
It’s simple: life. Just as nature and food and art are significant parts of life, so are flowers. Flowers birth beauty wherever they’re brought. Flowers make the most of life’s most meaningful moments: new babies, weddings, anniversaries, illness, and death. If you live in Castle Rock, you’ll likely need flower delivery of either roses, plants, bouquets, or arrangements throughout the year.
You’ll need birthday flowers for your mom, sister, wife, or daughter. You’ll need anniversary flowers for your wife. You might need to send new baby flowers to your new mom friend. Or, you might choose to surprise your child’s teacher with a Lehrer’s bouquet on the first or last day of school. Bottom line: every day is a beautiful day to send flowers to someone in Castle Rock - and no one does it better than Lehrer’s.
