Street party, free and varied live music. Fantastic. Crazily overpriced food all using a pre-paid voucher system. Not so much fun.
Street parking $2 for 2 hours in a major city? Bargain!
Pedestrianised precinct with free shuttle and high speed bicycle rickshaws? Gets my vote.
But it’s still a big city with skyscrapers, concrete and the need for a car, which as you’ll know by now is not my thing. Small and green places, I’m heading back to you…
I have to spend more time here. It’s a nice town, lots of entertainment and great food, but on the surface it doesn’t seem all that interesting. One day definitely isn’t enough. I feel like I’m missing something.
Yolculugumun ilk duragi Denver. Deniz seviyesinden 1600 metre yukarida olmak degisik bir duygu.
Denver is the capital of Colorado and sits one mile above sea level. For this reason it’s nicknamed the Mile High City. It’s got lots of museums, great restaurants, and plenty of entertainment for all ages and tastes. There are also many day trip opportunities with the Rocky Mountains and several historic towns just minutes away.
- Visit the Colorado State Capitol building for a free tour, Monday through Friday. Sit on the steps outside which are marked “One Mile Above Sea Level”.
- Stroll through Civic Center Park, between the State Capitol and City and County buildings. Check the schedule for events.
- Enjoy one of Denver’s fine museums, including the Denver Art Museum or History Colorado.
- Walk down 16th Street Mall for lots of shopping and restaurants.
- See the oldest part of Denver at Larimer Square. Stay for dinner at one of the restaurants or do some shopping.
- Take in a professional sporting event. Denver’s beloved Broncos play NFL football at Mile High Stadium. The Colorado Rockies play baseball at beautiful Coors Field. The Pepsi Center hosts the NBA’s Denver Nuggets and the NHL’s Colorado Avalanche. The Colorado Rapids play soccer at Dick’s Sporting Goods Park. In addition, the stadiums often host concerts and other events.
- The Buckhorn Exchange is Denver’s oldest steakhouse and one of the most unique dining experiences in town. Choose from wild game like elk and buffalo or have an amazing steak. Braver guests are encouraged to try Rocky Mountain oysters or fried alligator. Stuffed bears, deer, and other animals placed throughout the building add to the fun.
- Las Margs has excellent Mexican food and Mexican beers on tap in addition to friendly service. You can’t go wrong with the many different types of street tacos and enchiladas on the menu. If you like a little extra spice, the guacamole has a nice kick to it.
