Special notice

Due to Stage 2 fire restrictions, the fireworks show that had been planned for July 4 has been canceled.

Celebrate the freedom to shop, eat, drink and explore 

Of course, you’re invited to do more than just watch our fireworks show this Fourth of July. Our Town is open and ready to welcome you as you celebrate Independence Day. Make a day of it, and spend the holiday shopping, dining and exploring in Castle Rock.

Here are a few of our favorite things to do:

Shop, dine and party on

Experience everything from designer boutiques and one-of-a-kind shops to more than 120 stores at the Outlets of Castle Rock. After a bit of retail therapy, tempt your taste buds at one of more than 100 dining venues in Town. Local family-owned restaurants in unique settings, such as a historic Western saloon, a stone church or a trendy microbrewery are just some of the options for memorable meals from a wide range of cuisines.

Visit our business directory to check out Castle Rock’s many restaurants and retail shopping destinations.

Play and explore on

With more than 6,000 acres of open space and 95 miles of trails, you never know what kind of adventure will be waiting for you. Here are some of our favorite places and ways to soak up the Colorado sun:

Ridgeline Open Space

Named the Best Hiking/Biking Trail by Colorado Community Media, these soft-surface trails travel through valleys and ridgelines of the 370-acre open space property. Visitors can take in views of the Front Range to the west and the Town below as they traverse open grasslands and dense Gambel oak.

Philip S. Miller Park

This 7.4-mile native-surface trail network consists of single-track trails divided into four different, but interconnected, loops, with 1.2 miles of paved accessible segments in the active park area near the Miller Activity Complex. The trails explore all the valleys, knolls and high points of this 300-acre site. A unique feature on the site is the Challenge Hill, with 200 timber steps that climb 178 feet in elevation, similar to the Manitou Springs Incline.

Castle Rock Adventure Park

Experience 10 thrilling zip lines soaring over 1.5 miles of smooth, fast cable. Or, challenge yourself with a three-level course with more than 100 elements, including Ninja Warrior obstacles. Climb to new heights on the 42-foot climbing wall with four rappelling stations and the 70-foot Eagles Nest platform featuring the world’s first flight line. Learn more about these exciting adventures.
