From the Denver Post: Look, we love Fourth of July fireworks just as much as the next patriotic pyromaniac. That’s why we’ve put together this list of notable displays around the Front Range.

But we also love personal space and non-scorched landscapes, which is why we’ve added some contact information for reporting illegal fireworks. (We know: It’s lame to snitch. But it’s also lame to burn down your neighbor’s garage or half of a park.)

Setting off fireworks — of any kind — in Denver is illegal, and the same goes for most Front Range cities.

It's tricky to find a good hike for visitors from out of town. You want to show them why you love living in Colorado, but you don't want to kill them, especially if they're coming in from lower elevations. Here's my favorite spot to take flatlanders for a beautiful hike that shows off Colorado without much elevation change.
