Let’s Talk About Denver

With world-class art exhibitions, unlimited mountainous activities, and numerous craft breweries, Denver, Colorado has all you need for your next adventure. 

Also known as the Mile High City for its elevation, Denver is noted for its gorgeous surrounding view of the Rocky Mountains. 

Seven sports teams, 90 golf courses, hundreds of miles of biking and hiking trails, and a densely populated urban city? 

You can never be bored in Denver, Colorado!

Where to Stay:

Hotel Indigo is your go-to accommodation for luxury on a moderate budget. 

Located directly in downtown Denver, this rustic-chic hotel can point you in the direction of any activity you have in mind. 

Bonus, it’s pet friendly!

For more elegant housing, visit the Holiday Chalet, a charming Victorian hotel also in the downtown area. 

You’ll look and feel like royalty in one of their three luxury suites or seven rooms!

Where to Eat:

Sleep in late and brunch at Snooze, Denver’s most popular breakfast joint. 

Snooze’s motto is to “make each morning feel like your weekend – no matter which side of noon it’s on”.

Their sweet and savory entrees attract a long line, so make sure to secure a reservation before heading over.

Spending an afternoon at a brewery is one of the more popular activities for Denver locals, especially in Highland. 

Hundreds of breweries await you within this hipster residential area, but the Denver Beer Company outranks them all. 

Enjoy a quality drink with quality friends at this scenic outdoor establishment.

The 801 Chophouse is the newest steakhouse to arrive in Denver. 

Classy, fine dining lies ahead when you walk through the sophisticated wooden doors of this restaurant. 

Whether it be filet mignon from the finest steak, or a vegetarian blend of seasonal vegetables, you’ll be sure to have an incredible culinary experience at the Chophouse. 

Things to Do:

Stop by the Denver Botanic Gardens for a rotating collection of world-class art exhibitions, as well as fresh seasonal flowers and foliage. 

This living museum constantly changes, so no two visits will be the same!

See their website for more information about what events are happening during your visit. 

Shop till you drop at Cherry Creek Shopping Center, Denver’s high-style shopping district. 

Splurge on Gucci, Tiffany & Co., Louis Vuitton and more, or flip through the endless aisles of thrift stores, all in the same building!

What’s more, their food court hosts award-winning restaurants such as the 801 Chophouse!

And of course, a Starbucks. 

Feel like you’re on top of the world at Rocky Mountain National Park, where 415 square miles of wilderness await.

You cannot visit Denver without including the great outdoors into your itinerary!

With over 3000 miles of hiking trails, you could spend an entire day spectating the beauty of Colorado’s wildlife and foliage.
