Applewood Bars and Restaurants

The town of Applewood was settled more than 140 years ago by homesteaders who realized that farming would be more profitable than searching for gold. The town got its name when one of the early settlers found that the nitrogen he had been using for dynamite actually was a powerful fertilizer to help grow apple trees. There are so many cool things to do when you are tooling around the Applewood area. If you love puzzles and figuring out riddles, then you will want to make your way to the Golden Puzzle Room and test your skills. And there is nothing quite like joining a rafting or kayaking tour especially for those who love adventure and those who can't get enough of the water. But truly, the extreme outdoor recreation and excursion takes place in the nearby Rocky Mountain National Park. There are numerous activities available to you in this very special wonderland including wilderness camping where you can rough it has much as you like to. If horses are your thing, then be sure that you avail yourself of one of the two stables within the park. In addition, you will want to check out the fishing, camping, picnicking and wildlife watching opportunities. And if you feel like you have exhausted yourself to he point that you need to replenish your energy, direct your party bus chauffeur to one of the amazing places we have listed below.

The Arvada Tavern has a leader in the bar scene since it opened in 1933. They have great food, a very good beer list, delicious cocktails, and great service. Keep in mind that the outside is not much to look at but do not let that deter you in any way. We suggest the burger and brussel sprouts. It may seem like an odd combination but not the way the kitchen staff here cooks it up. There is something for everyone here. If you have a large group or you are just bringing a date, they can accommodate you. In addition, the craft cocktail bar will provide anything and everything you could ever dream of.
