Denver

Denver is an amazing place and a city of great contrasts. It is a vibrant metropolis with an impressive skyline located between the beautiful Rocky Mountains and the High Plains on an altitude of one mile or 5,280 feet (1,609 meters) above the sea level which gave the city its nickname the Mile-High City. Denver attracts most of its visitors due to its close proximity to the Rocky Mountains offering world-class outdoor activities ranging from skiing in the winter months to camping, hiking, horseback riding, rafting and fishing during the warmer months. However, the city of Denver offers plenty of exciting activities as well and it will not disappoint you whether you want to relax, enjoy the beautiful landscape surrounding the city or explore the city's attractions. Denver truly offers one of a kind experience all year round.

Without the Rocky Mountains that can be seen anywhere from the city, Denver would not be the same and it would be a sin not take advantage of its close proximity to the mountain range (only about a 20 minute drive from Downtown Denver) offering spectacular views and a number of outdoor activities all year round. However, if you are interested into recreation the city of Denver will not let you down either. Denver has over 200 urban and mountain parks, numerous rivers and trail areas, and 29 recreation centers which enable you to remain active during your vacations. If shopping is you favorite form of recreation, Denver will not disappoint you either. Head to the Cherry Creek Shopping District, the 16th Street Mall, Larimer Square or LoDo (Lower Downtown). The latter is also home to numerous fine restaurants and great bars, pubs and nightclubs as well as many live music venues but the Red Rocks Amphitheater located in the Red Rocks Park near Morrison is the most famous and spectacular of all. Do not forget that Denver is renowned as the America's beer capital ranking as number one in beer production per capita in the United States. Taste the local beer in one of many brewpubs or visit one of many breweries.

Visitors interested in history and arts have plenty to see and experience in Denver. Many city's neighborhoods are an attraction in themselves, while numerous museums give the city an extra charm. The Denver Art Museum located in the spectacular Frederic C. Hamilton building will impress you with its collection of American Indian art, while the Colorado History Museum offers great insight into the history of the state of Colorado. The latter is administered by the Colorado Historical Society which also administers some other prominent historic sites and museums worth visiting as well such as the Grant-Humphreys Mansion, Byers-Evans House and Pearce-McAllister Cottage. Another must-see is the Molly Brown House Museum that was the home of the activist, actress and Titanic survivor Molly Brown. If being after arts and culture you should head to the Santa Fe Arts Districts with over 40 galleries, shops and restaurants.

We will continue to update this site and add the best, top, and most popular restaurants, steakhouses, things to do, and seafood in Denver. If you know of popular restaurants, steakhouses, resorts, tourist attractions, hotels, resorts, pizza joint, or nightclubs, please let us know.
