5 Unique Places to Beat the Heat Near Arvada


Looking for fun places to keep cool around Arvada this summer? StorQuest Self Storage has you covered. Check out these five unique adventures to help you beat the heat under the hot Colorado sun.

Cherry Creek State Park

Take a quick trip to Arapahoe County and discover the natural prairie and wetlands of Cherry Creek State Park. In the center of the state park, an 880-acre reservoir is where you can bring your powerboat, sailboat, or paddle craft. Bring your kayak or canoe for a peaceful paddle on the lake and enjoy the scenic views or relax on the shore for some beach vibes.

Eben G. Fine Park

Heading into Boulder? Find refuge from hot summer days at Eben G. Fine Park. Kayakers and tubers alike will love the whitewater play park, and you can take a refreshing dip in the swimming hole. Just be sure to play it safe when the spring flows are high. We recommend going in the early AM for a more chill experience.

Crested Butte & Taylor River

Feeling up for a road trip? Fly high on a zipline tour through Crested Butte in the Rocky Mountains. Zip from six suspended wooden decks and take in the exquisite mountain views. After your two-hour adrenaline rush, take a short drive to the Taylor River. Spend the afternoon rafting a challenging whitewater through unforgettable canyon scenery.

The Beach at Grand Lake

If you’re looking for something a little closer to home – and way more relaxing – check out the Beach at Grand Lake. Offering grand views of Mount Craig, this little hidden gem is the perfect place to swim, fish, paddleboard, or just unwind on the sandy beach and watch the waves.

Lake Arbor Park

Keeping it within the city limits, it’s tough to beat Lake Arbor Park. This small park has much to offer, including a playground, open fields, multiple trails, and a pleasant loop around the lake. Take a paddle boat and enjoy a quiet time out on the water.
