If you do not have your own vehicle, you would have limited independence as far as getting around. With a car though, you are an hour away from several world-famous ski resorts, and closer to an unlimited number of spectacular hikes. We are only 40 minutes away from the large city of Denver, which has museums, sports arenas, etc. etc. If you are a winter visitor, we have snowshoes you can borrow. In summer, you can rent a canoe to enjoy the nearby lake. We're happy to give you lifts to nearby places. There are several pubs, etc. nearby, but the roads are curvy mountain roads, often well-monitored by the local highway patrol, so in more ways than one it is not safe to drive home after having a few drinks. We also do not really want anyone who has more than a few drinks in an evening here anyway. Drugs are a deal-breaker. Even though it's legal in Colorado, that includes marijuana. We like to enjoy life in healthier ways.
