It might be raining or too cold to go outside. You might have spent the day in the sun and need to give your burnt skin a break. Or maybe, you’re just spent from playing so hard that you need a mellow activity requiring a beer and an awesome group of friends.

Whatever the reason, bowling is a great activity for those looking to stay indoors and relax.

There are many great reasons to bowl, but on the top of the list is the fact that everyone can do it and have fun, regardless if they’re throwing gutter balls or strikes. Bowling is also social, affordable, and even offers some health benefits, like muscle toning, stress relief, and improved hand-eye-coordination.

For a fun night of bowling in the Royal Gorge Region, head to Fremont Lanes in Florence or Cañon City Lanes, which has an onsite game room and snack bar.
