    Colorado does have reciprocity with my Utah resident permit, but I am wondering if there are any other laws I should be aware of.

    Any restrictions on where I can and cannot carry, besides the obvious secured areas?

    Liquor stores? Restaurants that serve alcohol and bars?

    Anything else I should know?

    I know I can't OC in Denver, but wasn't planning on it for this trip anyway.

    Thanks in advance!

    As far as alcohol goes, this is the only restriction:

    CRS 18-12-106 (Prohibited use of weapons.)
    (1) A person commits a class 2 misdemeanor if:
    (d) The person has in his or her possession a firearm while the person is under the influence of intoxicating liquor or of a controlled substance, as defined in section 12-22-303 (7), C.R.S. Possession of a permit issued under section 18-12-105.1, as it existed prior to its repeal, or possession of a permit or a temporary emergency permit issued pursuant to part 2 of this article is no defense to a violation of this subsection (1).

    If you're CC'ing, about the only restrictions on where you can carry are government buildings that are posted.

    And lastly, you can travel anywhere:

    CRS 18-12-105.6(2)(b)
    Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no municipality, county, or city and county shall have the authority to enact or enforce any ordinance or resolution that would restrict a person's ability to travel with a weapon in a private automobile or other private means of conveyance for hunting or for lawful protection of a person's or another's person or property while traveling into, through, or within, a municipal, county, or city and county jurisdiction, regardless of the number of times the person stops in a jurisdiction.

    You can't concealed-carry in:

    Public K-12 schools (although you can have a gun in a compartment of the car, with the car locked);

    Any building with permanently-installed metal detectors and security;

    Federal buildings where it's prohibited by federal law;

    Any private property where the owner exercises his right to deny the carry of weapons.

    State preemption applies, so no other government authority can regulate concealed-carry in Colorado.

    Thanks for the information guys!

    I will be seeing a show at the Denver Center on Saturday and then hitting the flea market on Sunday morning. I am assuming neither of these venues has metal detectors?

    I can't imagine that they would. I've been to shows at most of the parts of the Denver Center (there are multiple theaters), and never saw metal detectors.

    The flea market may prohibit weapons, though. Worst case would be throwing you out for trespassing if you refused to leave when asked.
