Banjo Billy’s Bus Tours

OK, it’s silly. And a little unconventional. And you have to be armed with a sense of adventure. But hasn’t the let’s-grab-dinner-and-drinks routine been done a few too many times? Hop on the big wooden-sided school bus—a ramshackle vehicle “tricked out to look like a traveling hillbilly shack”—and settle in for 90 minutes of Denver folklore, ghost stories, juicy historic scandals, and yes, audience participation while you zip around the city. We laughed, jammed out to driving tunes like “Low Rider,” “Wagon Wheel,” and a few Journey hits, and had plenty of time to scout out a spot for the next date. Plus, it’s long enough to bond over the ridiculous experience, but short enough in the event of a chemistry misfire that you won’t forever wish you could get that hour and a half back. Denver tours depart at the Big Blue Bear in front of the Colorado Convention Center, 14th and California streets; Boulder tours depart from the Hotel Boulderado, 13th and Spruce streets, Boulder; 720-938-8885,
