While Colorado is known for its abundance of outdoor spaces, views and activities, the Centennial state also provides plenty of romantic settings for a proposal.
If you and your partner live in, or are visiting Colorado here are the best places to pop the question for a memorable and picturesque proposal.
Indoor Proposal Locations in Colorado
If you’re in Colorado Springs and looking for a luxurious space to pop the question, Penrose Room is where you’ll want to be. Located in The Broadmoor hotel, Penrose Room is the only five-star restaurant in Colorado and includes three-course meals, cocktails, dancing and live entertainment.
After a full and elegant evening, take a stroll through the rest of the resort and get down on one knee to complete the memorable night.
Located near Civic Center Park, Denver Art Museum is a contemporary gem among a nature-filled city. If you and your partner are art-enthusiasts, then a museum proposal is the way to go. After taking a stroll through the galleries and exhibits, choose your favorite one to pop the question in front of. Any section of this modern and architectural building will prove to be a memorable spot to kick off this exciting chapter.
Art buffs, this one’s for you! Located at the Denver Museum of Nature and Science, the Anschutz Family Sky Terrace looks out at the Denver skyline and the Rockies and makes for a picture perfect moment to get down on one knee.
After making your way through the museum exhibits, head out to the terrace (make sure there aren’t any events taking place that day!) and take in the views before sharing a sweet moment with your loved one.
While technically this attraction could be considered an outdoor adventure, the 13-minute ride inside the gondola is where the magic happens.
Looking over the San Juan mountains, the gondola provides a quiet and intimate setting for a romantic proposal that the two of you will remember for years and years to come.
Panoramic views, breathtaking heights, and a romantic ambiance make up a night a Peaks Lounge. Located on the 27th floor of the Hyatt Regency in the heart of downtown, the bar and lounge is the ideal spot for a sophisticated evening. Enjoy cocktails and light dessert before popping the question, then finish the evening with a bottle of champagne to celebrate. (This is also one of my personal favorite bars!)
