Denver is an outdoor city filled with urban adventures. It’s known for its world-class cultural attractions, thriving craft breweries, chef-owned restaurants and diverse music scene, all within easy reach of the Rocky Mountains.
Situated in the South Platte River Valley, this modern city draws openness from the Great Plains to the east and embraces the spectacular views of the mountains to the west. Residents of this mile-high landscape are noted for their sunny dispositions—to match the area’s 300 days of sunshine—and can-do attitudes. It’s very much a “maker culture,” where anything is possible.
So where do you begin? Park the car and explore the walkable downtown on your own two feet or get your heart pumping by renting a bicycle from Denver B-cycle. Check out Larimer Square and historic LoDo (Lower Downtown) where Victorian brick buildings have been transformed into chef-driven restaurants, specialty boutiques, art galleries and cocktail lounges. Or head to Union Station, a renovated Beaux-Arts train station that’s home to 10 chef-owned restaurants and bars, boutique shops and the 112-room Crawford Hotel. It’s not far to the Golden Triangle Creative District where you’ll find some of the city’s finest museums. And don’t miss the River North Art District (RiNo) where historic warehouses and factories now house jazz bars, restaurants, craft breweries and art galleries.
