There’s a whole lot to love in the Mile High City of Denver, CO -- a bustling hub of activity where the ying of a fast paced major city lifestyle meets the yang quietude of panoramic mountain views. A balance of excitement and escape, lures travelers of all stripes into Denver hotels looking for an adventure of their own.
The towering Mount Evans is a must-visit, with views that seem to go on for a hundred miles in all directions. Pack a picnic lunch and let the hours slip by at Echo Lake, or blaze a trail and watch for bighorn sheep, goats and other wildlife along the way. Drive the highest paved road in the country on the Mount Evan’s Scenic Byway, with vistas that continue to impress locals even after they’ve passed by hundreds of times.
See beauty of the man made kind at the Denver Art Museum or the Kirkland Museum of Fine & Decorative Art, with scenes that rival those of the mountains outside. Walk among the brick buildings of Wazee Street, poking into art galleries, boutique shops and restaurants along your way to the bustling halls of Union Station. Snap a photo below the golden dome of the State Capitol building and look for the place that marks the altitude of exactly one mile above sea-level. Crane your neck and gawk at the incredible architecture of the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception.
For unique local history, check out the Wings Over the Rockies Air & Space Museum or dive into the still-remaining memorabilia at the Molly Brown House Museum, once home to a Titanic Survivor. The Forney Transport Museum gives you a chance to admire curious cars and ancient automobiles, while the Downtown Aquarium will put you nose to nose with all sorts of playful water creatures.
Take in one of 8 pro sports teams at a professional arena or huddle up at a pub and cheer with the locals. With a nightlife that carries on into the wee hours, it’s fitting that the first building constructed in Denver was a saloon. The affectionately named “LoDo” area is tops after sundown, with Market Street being a particular favorite for night owls and party-goers.
