DENVER – Father’s Day is this Sunday and many of us are still trying to figure out what to get dad.

If you’re running out of time, you may want to cash out one of the many perks of living in Colorado and share with your father a little piece of what makes the Centennial State unique.

Here are five uniquely Colorado Father’s Day gift ideas:

Rockies tickets
Taking in a Rockies game under a blue Colorado sky is a great way to say “happy Father’s Day” to the baseball fan in your family. The Rockies play the Giants this Sunday. See the schedule and buy tickets here.

Colorado craft beer
Let’s be honest, your dad is secretly hoping that carefully wrapped, tie-shaped box you hand to him on Sunday is actually beer. So, give him what he really wants and show up with a case of his favorite Colorado brews.

Colorado mountains
Put the “you need to call more” conversation on hold and head to the hills this Sunday to show him why you’ve had problems connecting. While cell phone signals may have trouble traveling through the mountainous terrain, your Father’s Day gesture will have a clear line of sight. Keystone is having a Father’s Day Celebration at 10 a.m.

While your sharing the day with dad in Colorado’s high country, why not push the adventure level up a notch. Ziplines are everywhere and offer an exhilarating way to experience Colorado. According to, the best zipline can be found in Royal Gorge.

Monster truck show
You’ll crush it with dad this year if you take him to the Father’s Day Super Sunday Monster Truck Show this Sunday! Sunday! Sunday! at the Colorado National Speedway. We’re not sure how this is uniquely Colorado, but it’s probably going to be really cool.
