Welcome to Denver, Colorado
Denver is a glittering metropolis that blends a Wild West heritage with stunning surroundings.
The Mile High City is filled with clean mountain air, youthful energy, dozens of bike sharing stations and hundreds of beer flavors. And while the rugged beauty of the Rocky Mountains makes for a dramatic snowy backdrop, you’ll enjoy countless incredible days of sunshine.
Make your way to Larimer Square, the city’s oldest area and one that sparkles with twinkle lights, boasts 19th-century red-brick buildings and tempts both travelers and locals with restaurants and boutiques. Nearby in the “Golden Triangle” visit the modern marvel that is the Denver Art Museum and stand on the 13th step of the Capitol Building which marks exactly one-mile above sea level (giving the city it’s nickname!).
Weave some history into your visit with a stay at the century-old Brown Palace Hotel and Spa, try a dish of Rocky Mountain “oysters” at the historic Buckhorn Exchange and purchase some classic western duds from famed Rockmount Ranch Wear.
And the splendours of Denver extend beyond its city streets into the ponderosa pines of the high plains. Follow in dinosaur tracks at Dinosaur Ridge, catch a concert at Red Rocks natural amphitheater, and marvel at the dramatic rock formations of Garden of the Gods.
Book a local Denver photographer then take a deep breath of fresh mountain air, ski some slopes, stroll through parks and botanic gardens, and get ready to chill in this epic Western city.
