Everyone thinks of the Rocky Mountains when they think of Colorado, so how could you miss out on the scenic beauty that this state is famous for when you're in Denver? Take the Mount Evans scenic byway, one of the most memorable drives you'll ever make through pines and lakes and wildlife- all surrounded by the snowy peaks around Mount Evans.
This district is filled with beautiful warehouses that now house all the nightlife, pubs, rooftop cafes, restaurants, and sports bars you could ever ask for in one place. There are more of the best venues for jazz, handcrafted beer and shops selling authentic Colorado clothing in the Historic District than there are anywhere else in the city so pick your first venue and get started!
Denver was recently ranked as having the 4th most walkable downtown by the Brookings Institution. That means you've got your afternoon or evening of fun completely covered by Denver's downtown! You can save even more time if you're in the shopping mood by taking the free shuttle bus on the 16th Street Mall.
The square is perfect for a day or nighttime visit. If you go during the day you'll be able to appreciate the stunning Victorian buildings on the block as well as the square's excellent shopping venues, plus over a dozen of the city's best restaurants. If you're there at night you can hit up the cafes or any of the dance and comedy clubs. For over 40 years this has been THE place to be in Denver, and it only seems to get better at the square!
Although there are plenty of things going on in the Convention Center itself, one of this venue's biggest attractions is actually the giant blue bear outside of the building who appears to be peeking into the center's interior. This 40 foot tall bear is a great photo opportunity while being a great representation of Colorado's artistic minds, as he was created by Colorado-based artist Lawrence Argent.
