For those of us who haven’t started taking advantage of the new and improved Light Rail lines in Denver South, there’s a gridlock of vehicles waiting for us on I-25. Rush hour is a force to be reckoned with. But never fear–there’s a better way! Instead of getting cramps in your clutch foot, take a break at these oases of entertainment.

Topgolf Centennial

Topgolf takes the classic driving range and brings it to an entirely new level–three new levels actually. This triple-decker driving range has over 100 hitting bays that are climate controlled and even lit at night. If you’re a golfer, this is the perfect place to relieve some workday stress while avoiding traffic. If you’re not a golfer, there are still tons of other amenities at Topgolf that’ll keep you entertained–full service bar, a fire pit terrace, free wifi, and over 200 tvs to name a few. Just remember you’ll have to go home at some point…

Park Meadows

Touted as the “largest shopping mall in Denver,” Park Meadows will have you shopping till you drop after a long day in the office. If the 185+ stores and restaurants don’t catch your attention, the beautiful architecture surely will. Complete with a man-made rushing river with waterfalls and massive window-lined interiors, this mall is a feast for the eyes. Check out some of the quality food options while you lug shopping bags full of new shoes and thank your providence you don’t have a seatbelt on.
