What's better than a vacation than a free vacation? The Outlets at Loveland has FIVE Colorado staycations up for grabs, including the Royal Gorge.

Stop in at the Management Office at the Outlets at Loveland to get entered to win a getaway in the Centennial State. Here's what the contest is offering this year:

  • Two nights at the Holiday Inn Express in Castle Rock, which is located near the Outlets at Castle Rock and has some great craft beer.
  • Three days, two nights in Colorado Springs at the SCP Hotel — 'Holistic Hospitality.'
  • Three days, two nights in Silverthorne at the Hampton Inn. That's ski country AND shopping with the Outlets at Silverthorne, right there. This also includes $50 to dine at the new Timberline Restaurant.
  • Three days, two nights at The Cliff House at Pikes Peak in Manitou Springs. A great hotel in a great town.
  • The big giveaway: A one-night stay at the Bighorn Lodge at the Royal Gorge. It's a 3-bedroom home with a huge fireplace, a huge living room, and fantastic views. This also comes with two passes to Royal Gorge.

Anyone one of these sounds like a great way to see the state — for FREE.
