Thank you to Capital One for sponsoring this post.
Capital One Venture Dome
Colorado is full of adventure. I have lived in this beautiful state my entire life and although I feel like I have experienced a large portion of this state, there is so much that is out there to experience. I had the opportunity to attend the amazing Capital One Venture Dome at Cherry Creek Shopping Center this past weekend and had an incredible time.
The Capital One Venture Dome set out to help Denverites explore their own backyard and allowed attendees a chance to taste, experience and immerse ourselves in varying cultures. There was truly something for everyone and so much to do. Themed with all things that really represent our great state and some awesome surprises from around the world, it was a welcoming and exciting event to attend. I was only supposed to pop in for a short time, but I was having such a nice time, I stayed and experienced as much as I possibly could.
With a huge campfire complete with tasty marshmallows and great music, to outdoor games and those famous Adirondack chairs that grace every facet of our ski towns, the Venture dome’s exterior was so inviting and fun that people were flocking to experience everything.
Inside the Venture Dome
The dome itself is representative of how the Capital One Venture card rewards and encourages cardholders to travel, explore and experience something new, be it near or far. From virtual reality skiing experiences, to an astonishing 360º projection screen showcasing some of the most captivating and inspiring travel destinations to airbrush tattoos there was so much to experience.
I made it a point to take the quick quiz to find out what type of traveler I am. Of course “wayfinder” came out as my traveler type. I am absolutely one of those people that wants to see and do everything that the world has to offer, so I completely agreed with this outcome. Plus, they gave out super cool bandanas for your travel type! One fun experience that I was able to enjoy was meeting professional snowboarder Red Gerard. He happened to pop in the dome while I was there and he was a super sweet kid. It was also really impressive to watch him on the virtual reality ski simulator. We learned that he has never actually been on skis, however, you would never be able to tell, he mastered that simulator.
Just like a typical wayfinder, I had to try it all. I got a sweet red yeti airbrush tattoo and had to jump in the destination venture photo booth. I was game for it all and I think I was laughing the entire time as we shot the photo! I truly had a fantastic time exploring and checking out the Venture Dome.
I am a Capital One cardholder. In fact, they are the first credit card I ever opened, and I am still holding that same card. It was a perfect fit for me to partner with them to share some details about their awesome Venture® card. I love that it is designed with travel in mind and offers unlimited double miles on EVERY purchase, and that they can be redeemed on any travel-related purchases. Check out all the Venture® Card has to offer:
- Unlimited 2 miles per dollar on every purchase
- Earn 50,000 bonus miles (equal to $500 toward travel) once you spend $3,000 on purchases within the first 3 months of account opening
- Unlimited 10 miles per dollar on thousands of properties when you pay at hotels.com/venture
- Up to $100 application fee credit for either Global Entry or TSA Precheck
- Redeem miles for any airline, any hotel, anytime
The goal of the Venture Dome is to help Coloradans learn how they can explore everything from this amazing state to cities and countries far and away! Those Venture travel reward miles can help take them around the globe and back again. If you missed this fun event, do not worry, the Venture Dome is coming back to Denver in December (12/15-12/16) at the Rink at Belmar and in January (1/5-1/6) at Skyline Park. We had the best time, and I know you will too. For more information check out visitdestinationventure.com
